Well now how the holy hell does this work?

Postby Asger » Thu Jan 13, 2011 12:48 pm

So, ever since Factpile got a log-in system out of...nowhere, I can't post.

I try to log in, I can't. I try to make an account and I can't because, my username is already registered on FP.

Any idea what I'm supposed to do?

I havent checked FP at all today, and was not made aware of the change. Its one of those things that admin probably had been working on and was eager to effectuate to see what issues would have come up.

Let me see if I can find you some answers.

If I understand how this works, the username you generally use is registered by default with the email you generally use with the system. Either that, or Wordpress remembered by username from the last time the Admin tried to implement the login system.

Just go to "Register" and register the username you want. If your name is already registered for whatever reason, click on "Forgot my Password" and have it send a new randomly generated password to your email account ( I'm pretty sure this would only work with the email you generally use with your Factpile name ). You'll first get an email asking you to confirm you're request; Click on the link and you'll be sent a second email with your new password. Then use that password to login with your Username of choice. Once you're in, you should be able to change your password to whatever you want it to be.

Hope this helps.
