OK, I may (occasionally) be a jerk; but YOU'RE NO HELP!!!!

Unless you're "staff", skip this boring, techno-babble thread...

So, my hd crashed. Replaced and reformatted. Only problem, THIS is the only site I could NOT log-on!! NOT recognized AT ALL!!!! Repeated e-mails to "webmaster" last week remained unanswered, as did a personal phone call to a staff member.....Well, I re-registered as a new member (apparently only means to gain access), researched and discovered suggestion to delete (former) cookies. Now I've done that, and would like my "old" name back; but site always immediately recognizes my "new" name and prevents me attempting to log-on with "old" name......(my typical, usual sort of cunundrum) will someone extricate me from this?????

Could it be your password? Are you absolutely sure you are entering the correct one? Do you want us to send a password reminder email?

Speaking of emails, I see tht you have two different addresses. Which is correct, your 'citizen' one or your 'citizenstill' one?

I don't know for sure, but it looks to me like the person who started this thread had to register under a new name to be able to post. He was able to get help from Mal to get his original identity back, so his duplicate account was deleted. The software reverts deleted accounts to "guest" status, but doesn't delete the posts themselves.
