    It's me, Kibosh.

    I know this is an age old and regularly expressed irritation with TES, but who even remembers, let alone actually still has access to, the email account that they first registered with? Tried to login today, and for some strange reason my account had been locked. I input my current email address in order for TES to send me a reset email . . . but of course, no email arrived as my current email address is not the one I registered with.

    There should be a way to update the email address associated with your account just like you get with nearly every other online account. Have i simply missed it? I can't see a facility for email changes in the Personal Details section.
    I'm full of the cold and have a sore throat and the last thing I feel like doing is entering into a protracted fiasco to try and reinstate my Kibosh username.

    Potentially, but how can I prove to them that i am kibosh . . . therein lies the difficulty.

    And now by having 2 accounts in conflict with regulations. TES was so much simpler ten years ago - a bit like teaching.

    You'd like to think so but when I put my email address in, it says it has already been registered. :confused:

    Didn’t Nelly FuF become someone else very recently and temporarily because of logging in problems?

    Oh, gawd :(
    I was luckier and changed my email address for my sodalime username . . . I think I may just stick with this username now

    Are you intent on pestering us about the matter?

    This is how I became Nellyfuf2.
    I got locked out of my account.
    But my email was a long standing one so they sent a reset thing to my email.
    And I did as I was told but I was defaulted to my other name which I had forgotten about,
    And so it went on.
    So I set up the thing again as Nellyfuf2.
    You will have to be Kibosh2.

    It's all a wicked ploy to make sure nobody ever wins the TES prize payout for having posted a quillion times and having a zillion likes. You must have been very close to the target.
