How to get back original account?


#1

How do I get my original account back. Since this site changed, I can’t log in to my usual account. I just signed up with a temp account to ask this. Over the past 6 months I’ve sent numerous emails to the site admins to get some help. No one ever responds. Ever. How do you get help?


#2

We’ve never gotten any emails from you. PM me with the details of the old account


#3

Thanks for the reply. I looked for how to send a PM but can’t find it anywhere. So how do you do that?


#4

Click on the user’s name, and then the message button.


#5

I figured there should be something like that. But nothing shows up as that kind of option.


#6

You don’t see something like this when you click on @theodox’s name?

I wonder if it’s some kind of user-level permissions thing.

Yeah, looks like you need to be at least a basic user to send private messages. Can’t remember what the rules are for hitting basic though.


#7

No I do not see that. Kind of obvious otherwise this wouldn’t be an issue. This is pretty funny to have so many roadblocks to get my account back.


#8

btw, I have send multiple emails to the email addresses listed as the mod address of this site. Does no one read those?


#9

So while this is a total pain. By default the way to get up to a basic user is:

They can get to trust level 1 by…

  • entering at least 5 topics
  • reading at least 30 posts
  • spend a total of 10 minutes reading posts

At that point the restriction on private messages should vanish.
I think entering just means clicking on, not actually creating new ones.

Wish I could do more to help.

If the mods are really interested in helping me out, they will make it so I can contact them.

Still waiting…

Hi @temp1 , sorry for delay… I have instated you as a basic user, are you able to PM me the email addresses you used. There maybe a technical issue that we need to resolve. Administration emails are send a number of admins and we have not received any to my knowledge.

Cheers,
Rob.
