I need to log in, amongst other reasons to change back to my normal name as my email address is linked to this one with my RL name etc.

I can't log in and am definitely using the right email address and password. WHY?!?

Help somebody....I can't post (well not anonymously at least) and am getting the shakes as a consequence!

Oh poor you, are you still stuck?

theauthor Fri 25-Jul-08 22:33:21

Yes! I don't know what's gone wrong! Maybe I've been banned for idea...!!!

theauthor Fri 25-Jul-08 22:35:21

And if I ask for a password reminder using the email address I am definitely registered under it says there is no-one registered under this name sad

Well your still here so you can't have been banned.
Have you contacted the MN bosses type people?

theauthor Fri 25-Jul-08 22:37:21

Not yet - will do.
Really I was joking about being banned as I am very innocuous! The most trouble I get up to is being very slightly unreasonable on AIBU!

We need a MN regular to help you out, why is no posting!
Maybe you should start a new thead with a really outrageous title!

theauthor Fri 25-Jul-08 22:44:14

Indeed. Something really shocking like 'my ds loves Fruitshoots'.

Right go to my my MN first of all

hughjarssss Fri 25-Jul-08 22:46:35

Yaaa! A regular, all will be well now theauthor smile

theauthor Fri 25-Jul-08 22:46:36

Ok. I did that before and typed in my usual info and it just didn't recognise it....what next?

BoysAreLikeDogs Fri 25-Jul-08 22:46:42

Oi oi, focus


BoysAreLikeDogs Fri 25-Jul-08 22:47:16


now, think, what other email COULD you have used

BoysAreLikeDogs Fri 25-Jul-08 22:48:31

Which email account do you get the MN weekly parenting doodah in?

theauthor Fri 25-Jul-08 22:48:57

I wish it was that easy....I've tried both of the email addresses I have and both password combs and nowt. And to be honest I know which one it was registered under and the password and it's still not working.

This is really strange.

theauthor Fri 25-Jul-08 22:51:00

I tried that one. How on earth will I post all those dodgy things about S&M/ my drugs habit etc. if I can't be anonymous anymore shock.

theauthor Fri 25-Jul-08 22:51:45

And the fact I killed the neighbour's dog, and have a shoplifting habit and......oh I've run out of ideas now.

BoysAreLikeDogs Fri 25-Jul-08 22:51:46

Oh dear

The next thing I would try is to go to your OP, press the red ! button, and that takes you straight through to MN inbox.

Type a summary of what we have tried to do here, and hopefully BigTech will trot along to help.

Sorry I couldn't help you more.

hughjarssss Fri 25-Jul-08 22:54:23

Did you want to go back to your old name? If not you could register again with the email address that wasn't already registered and pick a new name

theauthor Fri 25-Jul-08 22:54:34

Thanks for trying though. 'tis very annoying but I'm sure techy support people will have an answer.

Now don't forget to forget everything i've just said about all my secrets.....shhhh.

BoysAreLikeDogs Fri 25-Jul-08 22:55:17

<<secret handshakes all round>>

theauthor Fri 25-Jul-08 22:57:15

Ok I admit the neighbour's dog bit was made up but not the rest!! Honest!
