I thought for a minute that I would be locked out here too.

Here's the story-
For the past two weeks I've been receiving obvious scam emails. On Sunday my email account was hacked and flooded with "mail undelivered" notices. After about 1,500 and counting in five minutes my provider and I decided to shut down my account. I created a new account similar to my old and with the same password. Now some places, like NA and ARF, among others, won't allow me to log in. I can't log in because my information isn't recognized, and I can't re-register because my profile info is "already in use". The ole' catch 22. If I "don't remember my password", which hasn't changed, an email is sent to my old email address, which doesn't exist.

So- Bill, how do I change my email to my new one without losing my ability to log in? My old email was 1terrydecker@insightbb.com.
My new email is terrydecker@insightbb.com without the number 1 in front

You should have seen the hoops I had to jump through to reset my email accounts on my two computers.

It's a lot like having your wallet stolen. EVERY account that I have needs to be changed.
Some fun huh?

Terry:
I sent John Bartley a pm at ARF. That's all I can do. I am no longer a moderator there.

Right- I appreciate it. Sorry I'm late responding. I've been dealing with changing my email everywhere. Yeah, I did get it resolved and I'm getting replies from ARF again, although I have to log in every time. I guess that will resolve itself eventually. However I haven't received notices of these comments. Is there some setting I'm missing.
Thanks again,
Terry
P.S. You are missed at ARF. At least by me.

ON this forum? All you have to do is in your settings make sure you've checked Receive e mail notices.
Thanks. I won't talk about ARF here, but, I appreciate it...
You may pm me on anything elseaout whatever.
Just not in the main forums, please.
I'm glad you were able to get back in there. I sent him the pm right after I left here that night.
Hope you won't quit coming here. We need you, too.

Bill, I'm not having troubles. I gave another arf'er some help getting back in. He had to change his e mail address.
No hackers here. Thanks for the offer, anyway.

Geez- I hate working on TV's. All that radiation. I had a nice JVC that suddenly went green and yellow, (no red). I tested some parts, resoldered some connections and so on. I finally gave up and got a nice Phillips on Craigslist for free. The girl wanted $25 but HAD to move. I made my move and made out like a champ.
Good Luck.
