Hi,

how may I contact the site admin in order to retrieve an account? It wasn't hacked, but I had an issue with my account and I don't receive anything from the account retrieval system (with the email address stuff). I checked my spam btw ;)

Thanks! :)

oh, so your openid login was disabled, thus you could no more login ?

Yes! ^^ I have been away so I completely forgot to migrate my account to a more "standard" form.

ah, good to know.

unfortunately, though there's some 'admins' around (e.g. me) that does not come with the priviledge to access your current (or previous) account settings ;(

i'm afraid, you'll just have to start with a new identity.

I had the same issue. It does not seem like the account recovery email in the forum is working.

@jpistorino there is no e-mail validation, when you sign up (known flaw for this framework) so , if you made any typo there, it won't work.

(there might be a lot more flaws here, let's keep an eye on this)

Ok! In my case, I had email notifications turned on some time ago so it seems my address was correctly set up in the forum.

Same here. I previously got email notifications. I simply think that the account recovery email in the forum does not work.
