I've received 2 PMs to my old ID of TygerLily which I can't access. Is there any way I can get into the account or have them forwarded to me?Or, if whoever has sent them please delete then re-send them to Tyger_Lily.

Ta.

I kind of hoped that all this would be meshed together but clearly not. I'll have to boot this one upstairs.

Argh - I now have two accounts!

There doesn't seem to be a way to cancel/delete an account anywhere..?
I think my "new" account (gcd_0851d214385b) needs deleting for everything to be ok. If someone could take a look on my behalf that'd be great.

thanks :)

Are you sure? It's such a catchy and memorable name?

The account isn't activate so there is no need to delete it or mesh it.

So as you were ;)

Yes there is! I want to change the email address associated with my LilacPhonograph account but it's locked out by gcd_0851d214385b. When I try to alter the LP email address I get told the address is already in use -- which it is: by the gcd_0851d214385b account!

I'd guess the easiest way to fix this would be to delete gcd_0851d214385b but there doesn't appear to be a way of doing this myself.

OK well we can neither delete accounts or change the email addresses.

You'd need to log into the other account via:

www.forteantimes.com/registration/?p=essentials

and change the email address. Then you can put the old email address into your new account.

If this doesn't work then you need to contact the admin (if Al can't deal then he'll kick it upstairs):

Hmmm... I don't seem to know what the password for gcd_0851d214385b is; And I've already requested and deleted the account details today, so I'm now locked out of the account. :oops:

Pants.

Oh well. It's hardly urgent so it can wait until tomorrow. Thanks for your help.

Hi - posting on behalf of lardfan who was formerly lard - following the changeover she wasn't able to keep the name as it had been used a few years ago by someone else.

Anyway... can someone merge the accounts?

many thanks

You appear to have been meshed.
Um... don't think so... lardfan still appears as a separate member to lard and hasn't picked up the posts, avatars etc

Sorry I thought you were asking for yourself.

The answer to your question is I'm afraid it will get done whenever they get around to it.

lardfan can still use the forums in the meantime - all meshing will do is restore their PMs, joined on date, etc. its more a tidying up of loose ends.

Sorry to hassle again but it's been a couple of months now. Can someone chase this up? I'm doing so on behalf of Lardfan who can't get to surf the board as often as me!

I used to be Seaweed, but only had a hotmail account, any chance I can return to that user name, account? Ta.

I'm afraid you can't go back to the previous username (as it is taken somewhere in the Dennis-verse) but we can merge the old account into your new one so it assiociates your old posts and other details with the current one.

Cheers Emps, do I need to do anything other than sacrificing a family pack of Cheese Wotsits to the Cthulian master?

I'm guessing you didn't scarifice the family pack of Cheese Wotsits to the Cthulian master. ;)

I'll pass it on and it'll get done when it gets done. If it doesn't get done let us know and we'll try another cage rattle.

All hail Mighty Emporer...*

I was Previously Just Waylander. I amd now Waylander28? accidently. Anyhow, i can see my old account with all my details, when I look in the members list. I could not log on as the Old Waylander, and when it sends out a password reminder it goes to some ****#***.co.uk address, of which I have never had! So how did that mesh happen!

Anyhow, the old username which was 'Waylander', is now showing as 'Waylander~'. Not sure where the ~ cam from. I've been speaking with Alistar, he said he would merge the two accounts, I don;t think he has yet.


*does he like that sort of thing???

Yes, he does. Or Emps. Personally I prefer "Excellency", or "Jack-Booted Fascist Bastard"* for myself, or failing that just "stu" and Quixote can say how she prefers to be addressed herself.

Anyway, I'll leave that query to the all-hailed mighty Emps, as that's his ball-game. I'll stick to arbitrary victimisation.


*An interesting appellation, as owing to rugby-type legs I can't wear jack boots, but hey-ho...
