    Maybe we could cut down on people having to reregister under another name by having a forgot password linkie after maybe three attempts that would e-mail a temp password to the member?

    That would be a Tom job.

    I don't know how hard it would be to set up but thats a great idea and most of the other forums I frequent have that option. O0

    That sounds great but i have an easier solution. Lets all have the same password, then if we forgot it then we could have a look at the sticky where the password is and then use it.

    How about if people just use the built in way of doing this?

    Just click Forgot your password on the Login screen.

    Begging forgiveness for not knowing that this was already a part of the forum but now I'm confused about why someone would need to reregister under another username? :?

    I guess some people don't know to look for this and also don;t know how to send an email or PM asking for help and just create a new user account. Of course they lose all of their other identity and posts. Maybe that is the plan after creating havoc!

    I had to register with a new user name because my old e-mail address that was linked to this Forum was compromised on Facebook. I had to delete it from all my related accounts and start from scratch. Unfortunately when you forget your password or ID name, you're asked to enter your e-mail address so a new one or a reminder can be sent to you. Since my e-mail account was stolen, I was unable to access it because the thief changed my password. >:( What a mess that was!

    Had this not happened, I would have easily been able to re-join!
