@rtwx @artilectzed It looks like signup is still handled through Yahoo, so I guess they're still in the process of converting all the accounts. It's been a staged roll-out like phone updates.

I helped someone set up an account back in March, and IIRC they got access to the new login setup the next day. Meanwhile I had to wait until sometime in April.

I would imagine they'll have totally Yahoo-less signup either before or as part of their migration to AWS. Probably.


@rtwx @artilectzed To clarify:

1. Yes, the updated logins on existing accounts aren't tied to Yahoo anymore.

2. No, creating a new account still goes through Yahoo. But it can be converted shortly afterward, and getting rid of that requirement is on their roadmap.
