nothing seem to work wrote:I have created THREE emails JUST to get back on this forum not counting my MAIN email which you blocked a decade ago. I create one, use it for one time, come back and it says does bit recognize user name. So I ask for help. It wants my email, I get, "does not recognize my email" So I try to register with the email and then I get, "EMAIL ALREADY IN USE"
NOW I have FOUR emails, one i have used for 25 years and THREE just for this site and NONE are usable for this site.
SO< HOW can I get you to CLEAR, WIPE OUT etc and START ALL OVER AGAIN SO I CAN GET BACK ON.


And in all that you didn't once offer anything we might use to locate your forum account in order to help you. What user name are you trying to log in with?

by forums do you mean http://forums.mozillazine.org as there is only one account and no separate accounts needed for each section.

He has said it's in the works, but I have no idea when he's planning on actually doing that. It will probably be a while since he's very busy and the upgrade will take a lot of babying. The last upgrade was almost a catastrophic failure, so he's very cautious about it now.


Can you please post memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=2829436 to the admin?

What is his nick profile link?

The only forum account listed with your email address is the one you are currently posting with.



Can you please have a look on my questions?

* I suggest that you add "OPEN FOR GUEST POSTING. Talk about stuff specific to the site -- bugs, suggestions, and of course praise welcome. " to the Site Discussion forum description. What do you think about it?
* Add the Site Discussion forum link to "I forgot my password" and "Resend activation e-mail" like this: "Your account has been manually deactivated and is only able to be reactivated by an administrator. YOU CAN POST AS GUEST IN THE Site Discussion FORUM". What do you think about it?
* In http://www.mozillazine.org/chat/ I suggest that you add: "This channel is unmaintained, and no one here has any connection to the mozillazine website anymore." as this text is in the topic of the channel. What do you think about this?
