Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

I have tried every email account I have, none have even changed for me for over 10 years, and I cannot get my account to reset no matter how many times I have tried to get it to reset, I had to sign up for a this new account just to get back in to post that my PAID Account cannot be accessed or reset no matter what I do.

Can a Admin or Mod please PM me so I can get my old paid account password email reset sent to me.

Every single "Forum" I was a member of, including this one, has been nothing but a huge hassle to get back onto due to the massive reset of everyone's account and passwords.

Thanks in advance !!!!

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

Big problem that is really pushing me to the limit...... sent email to Chevelles.com asking for password reset assistance as I have had a new email address and did not receive the notification to update my password. Then I get an email addressed to username 'Obsolete.' WTF. That's not me. So I respond providing my username 'Skier_Bob' lifetime member.... member Since 1999. I keep getting email addressed to Dear Osolete but nothing in response to my request. Totally unsatisfactory support (first time this has happened to me on this site since 1999. SO, I figure I will try to log in, and change password, then change user name to my original user name. NOPE. Once again. WTF. Is anyone getting the emails I am sending? CAn anyone assist me (SKIER_BOB) NOT 'Obsolete' . Thanks.. A Lifetime paid up member who hasn't been able to access the site for a month.

Re: Attention - Password and Security Update

spent a few moments reading the posts in this thread.. I feel bad for this site - it has been a model in efficiency and professionalism (give or take a few heated exchanges) since I have been a member (1999) and agree with all those posts that basically say, "What have you guys done?" You're killing us! Please see previous post and help me asap.... I'd like to put this pain behind me asap. THANKS

The email address that password resets are being to sent to (I ASSUME) is
[email protected] which is what is in your profile.
Do you want me to change it?
Of course, TC can only use the email address that they have.

It can not be the same as the one in your new temporary log on profile so we'll have to change that first if that's the one you want TC to have.

(naturally can't have two profiles with the same email address.)

Once you do get logged on to your old profile I will delete this temporary one.

I added the - to my new screen name because I never got anything about the update and I am not on here every single day.

All of my emails are the same as they have been, so I have no idea, but every site affected by the hackers was not able to send me an email and was worthless for getting it reset, just endless redirects and time wasted by me trying to get a hold of someone and get a fix.

Thanks

hey all,

Sorry about the wait, If you are unable to get your password resets properly sorted out due to old emails on your account still after the notice was sent out, we ask that you go down to the contact us area, and with the subject line of "password reset" add the following contents for me:

- Account Name
- Email On the account
- Email You need it changed to if need be

add all this, then hit send, and someone on our team will answer that email and fix your account up no problem.

You can do the same and send us a PM privately to have it manually changed, but due to the influx and us tackling a lot of issues, this would be a slower way of getting it reset. we recommend you use the contact us form to get it resolved if you can. If that does fail though and you have waited too long, send us a PM and we will Manually reset it. Just make sure you supply the information above for a quicker fix.

Also, If you do have the right email on your account, I would ask you to please check your spam/junk folders as sometimes with certain email providers, it tends to land in there.

Again, I personally apologize about the wait. We are tackling the password transition as quickly as we can. if you all need anything else, please let me know.

Tried that, does not work, some stupid page redirect comes up about your question has not been submitted or some other nonsense.

Everything that could be tried was tried, PM on the way.
