    yes, it’s not a good system.
    Unless you don't have access to your old email. Because i tried that. After setting it in the forum didn't work. The issue is many of us have lost access to old email systems.

    Well, I believe I did that convoluted process and somehow the browser account access worked. Now after reset, the browser initially worked, but now it doesn’t but the apps do.

    Edit: now it works after several resets.

    Does anyone have one of those AOL CD Roms they could send Ice to help him try and get back into his email address?

    I'd ask my mom but I think we finally got her to throw her stack out sometime in the mid-aughts.

    Funny you should mention that. When I joined I was using a netscape.net address. That got consumed by AOL at some point and the address converted. Now both are long gone.

    Compromised Accounts

    I don’t have much to say about people who lost control of accounts because the system’s only simple way of authenticating (since TRG doesn’t collect other data like phone number, SSN, or “secret questions” that could aid in account recovery) relies on a now-defunct email address.

    But if the problem is simply that you don’t know what password your browser has been using to automatically log you in, most browsers let you go into settings to view its collection of usernames and passwords.

    I was able to reset password and restore access via browser but not mobile. Good news/bad news: I'm not here as often...

    I have no clue who half you people are anymore since this started and the Olympic thread brought in some new (old?) faces.

    A detailed org chart for this place would be helpful, or at least a current roster.

    The problem with needing an account every silly place one goes is that things get forgotten. Yes, it would have been prudent to update my email address when it changed.

    Read these wise words:



    If you have been logging into the site with h00k3rs4nd8L0w since 2003, please update it to something unique so we can stop these fuckers. And, feel free to report any too good to be true FS listings.

    To change your deets,
    - in edit settings of the form <- then go to email and password
    - then change your password at the top

    That should get you back into the app and forums, etc. So easy a dentist could do it.

    Good luck and stay safe.

    Allegedly.

    Tried the advice above but still no luck. Got a VBulletin message that said my password isn't correct. It has to be correct, because I'm logged in using my password

    did you change it in two places, as described in the linked thread? Here is a direct link to a post showing both places it needs to be changed. And yes, it's fucked up that it has to be done this way.

    The fix for the email address issue is probably to check what's currently configured and ask a mod to change it via PM if you no longer have access to the old addy?? Trying to do a password reset first or trying to change it yourself results in loss of access to the ID.

    Reporting a post (with a description of the problem) is actually a good method, because then every mod gets the report. For some reason, I cannot access the panel where email addresses get changed, so PMing me would just add an extra step in the process.

    Same thing happened to my account Crock. had to create this one to post, but don't want to lose my old account. Halp!

    I reported your post so hopefully someone with access can help.
