Maybe I'm using the wrong user name? Is that my real name or Charlies Aunt?
Stupid question I know- please take pity on me as it's Christmas!
I think you probably are using the wrong user name which might be neither your real name nor Charlies Aunt. It is whatever you gave your user name as when you registered with the forums the first time.
The reason I say this is that Keri is not my name but is part of one of my daughters' names. I won't go into the somewhat complicated (but perfectly logical) reasons for why I came up with Kerioboe as a user name but that is why I can't imagine that I just typed Keri. However, it seems I must have.
Well, I have finally sorted it out (No thanks to the mods, who never replied to my emails / PMs, in fact one of them says it has never even been read
Since I am leaving work soon, I thought I'd better change my email address from my work one to home, so I did, which logged me out. And the validation email that came to home to confirm the change of email had my login name on it!! Which, just like Kerioboe's, was not the login name, or any variation of it that I was expecting at all. I must have picked it when I registered to be my login name, and then put "hazel" to be my displayed name on the grounds that that was a bit more sensible
So CA/AB, maybe you could try this trick too? (not being sensible, heaven forbid, but changing your email address
