Can't login to old account due to symbols in name
« on: November 21, 2021, 04:33:12 am »
Hi FeralHeart,

I was going back to my oldest account -Hood- for nostalgia's sake, but I can't seem to get in because of the dashes in the name.  I know old accounts are deleted, but I tried my friend's account from the same time period that she hasn't used at all, and it worked.

Is there any way to change the account name so I can use it again?

Thanks so much!

So, I couldn't find a "-Hood-" but I did find a ".-Hood-." would that be the account you're looking for? Link: https://feral-heart.com/smf/index.php?action=profile;u=211568

Thanks for your help!  I don't think that's my old account though, since I know I made posts on the forums and .-Hood-. hasn't.  Is there a way to recover a username from an e-mail instead of the other way around?  I do know the e-mail I used.
