User ID Not Found

Hi,

I'm receiving a "Username not found" error when I try to log into the forum with my username - "Crash". I'm a longtime member of the forum so I'm not sure whats going on.
Had to re-register with this profile as I couldn't find any way to contact the site admin externally.

Can someone please help me out?

I just looked and there is still a "Crash" listed as a member. Are you using the correct password?

Yup, correct password - the exact error I get is "That username does not exist." Nothing to do with password.

And yes, also looked up my profile and saw that it still appears to be there. Has anything changed on the site recently?

Unsure....I check the site almost every day but don't specifically recall logging in.

Re: User ID Not Found

Have you tried shutting down your system, clearing any "cookies" which keep track of links you visit as well as passwords?

Some others have had problems on other boards and by doing this and then signing back in they were able to access the board again.

Not sure if this will help but so far it probably won't hurt.

One other thing, are you using a computer at a different location? Have had some boards question when I am using a system with a different "IP" address.

Again not sure if this would be an issue as I am not an IT person but get around my own system without too many problems. LOL for the big ones I depend on my husband, my own personal geek, to take care of those.

User ID Not Found - but old one works

Mystery Solved...it wasn't the cookies but this got me thinking in a different direction. I was trying to log in with a new device, so I knew cookies wouldn't be a factor...this got me thinking, I likely don't change my settings / ever enter my credentials on my older devices.

About a year back I changed my user ID to crash. However, it appears that I still have to login with my original user ID name, even though it logs me in as Crash. I just need to remember this for this for the next time I have to login again from scratch.

Thanks for your help!
