Can't log in or get my password reset

Postby Jamesintheworld help » Mon Oct 10, 2011 3:45 pm

Can someone reset my password for me

I keep getting a message that I have reached the max amount of login attempts (but I only tried once) and when I try and reset my password I get a message saying that my username and email don't match. Not sure what's up but thanks in advance for your help up

It's the ghost of Penta trying to log in on your account so she can post nude holiday photots of herself.

What has this miserable sinner done to deserve such manna from heaven? I am truly blessed.

Max amount of login attempts means two things:

Someone is trying to break into your account that you know.

Or...the most likely one is that a spammer is trying to guess your password and break in. We have had a hell of a time with spam bots from China lately.

I did not ban you and no one else did either.

I will investigate further and see if there is anything in the tedious user logs to shed light on this.

Keep trying, it should be fine. If you suddenly become a spammer, I will change your password for you.

I don't suppose that means what it appears to mean: that I am no longer banned and if I keep trying to log on it will eventually work. But it figures that just as bfcadmin didn't have the courtesy to tell me that I was banned in the first place or give me a proper reason (and then when I wrote to ask if I was and why, characterised it as harassment), she wouldn't stir herself to tell me that I am banned no more. I'll try and see. Thanks.

This was about JITW not being able to log in.
