The most common problem is browsers "remembering" wrongly spelled usernames and passwords.

After several login failures, the page changes to a different login page where you additionally have to enter some letters and numbers into a field for added security. In that case, the login details have to be typed in again correctly, they are NOT brought over from the previous page. If the text boxes are already populated, most likely it is something incorrect put in by your browser.

If you do not enter the correct details or let the browser "remember" incorrect details, the login will fail. It might be frustrating but this is not a problem of the website.

If you forgot your password, there is a "Lost Password?" link and some instructions. You then get an email with a link. That link works only once. If you still can't log in, you can not use the link a second time. You have to go through the Lost Password procedure again. The mail by the way, will also tell you your username.

If you forgot your username /password, the best might be to first delete the login details stored by your browser. Then it is not quite as likely that things go wrong.

If your email address turned invalid due to the provider disabling your email account, your message board membership will have seized too, meaning that you have to sign up again with a valid email address. Such disabled accounts can not be re-enabled.

  I should not have to tell you usernames and passwords...

most website with user accounts have a facility to get a new password. So has this message board. You come across that link every time you log in.

Most websites would send you a link in the case you have forgotten your password and you have used the forgotten (or new) password facility. That also is the case with this message board.

If the mail does not arrive in your inbox, try the spam folder (or whatever that folder is called). It might be hidden somewhere and the best would be to have a look at it before you send me an e-mail saying that you did not get the mail...
If the link does not seem to work, make sure that the whole link is used. Sometimes half of the link is on the line below. So you have to put it together before you copy it and paste it into the address bar.

There is one nice thing here which is, in the case you have also forgotten your usernmame, that you are greeted in the new password mail with your username. That means that there is no need to ask me for your username Smile

If you have forgotten your e-mail address -  I can't help.

If your email account was disabled by your provider due to e.g. never been checked for new mails, and you also forgot your password, I will not be able to help. I will not change email addresses or passwords for you, I won't even delete the account and posts. For that reason, please check your emails regularly or use your current email address.
It is easy to change the email address in the "User CP". When you change your email address, you have to make sure that it is correct before you finalise it. If it should be incorrect, you might end up with the above problem.

If you should have a query you have to write from the same e-mail address you used when you signed up here. If that is not valid anymore for whatever reason - change it first before you write to me! Please do NOT include passwords in your queries.
