I apparently already registered for this forum some time ago, but I find myself at a loss as to how to use the account I registered. When I tried to register today with my email address BluestarSorcerer@hotmail.com the site replied that this email was already registered, and that it was therefore impossible to do so now. I tried registering with a second email address, and this time it stopped me because my username was already in use - no doubt taken when I registered the first time, whenever that was. I tried sending a request for my old password, and it stopped me because the account in question was "inactive", which honestly makes sense because I have not been trying to use the forum for so long I can't even remember the last time I did try to. The solution the site recommended: contact the forum administrator. So I looked at ak-ryuu's profile, and the only means of contact it listed was to send a PM. Needless to say, this is only possible if I can log into the forum, and the problem is that I can't log into the forum.

So, here I am, registered with a secondary username and a secondary email address, and hoping I can find out how to recover my account as Fathom, which I assume is still associated with my hotmail address, despite its state of inactivity. Is there still hope?

Hotmail is a bit infamous for throwing away registration emails, I bet that's what happened in this case so you could never complete your original registration.

Nah, it was just never activated in the first place :)

My email is on the main website though ;)

I activated the "Fathom" account manually, so you should now be able to request the password reminder. (If it doesn't seem to arrive, check Hotmail's spam folder; let's hope they don't throw it out completely like they tend to do with registration mails ;)) If you have further problems, just e-mail, PM, or post in this thread, and I'll sort it out as soon as I see it :)

Yay! Welcome to the forum! ;)

Hmm, with that registration date you're actually one of the "oldest" posters here ... I can't quite remember when I opened the forum to the public, but it was probably late November 2006 or something (Yeah, I could look it up, but it's 6 AM and I should be sleeping), in any case not long before you originally registered :)

Indeed, I had some vague recollection of it being a very long time ago. I don't think it counts, though, if I never activated it in the first place. Oh well, I'm here now!
