Can't retrieve my lost password
Hey,
 The Simviation site recently updated their forum page, and I lost my password and can't retrieve it, despite typing in my email address for it to be sent to.  Any help would be appreciated. Shocked

Re: Can't retrieve my lost password
Simviation's YaBB forum is in maintenance mode and retrieve password doesn't work under maintenance mode.  You'll need to contact someone at Simviation's site for help.

Re: Can't retrieve my lost password
I already tried contacting the board administrator, and received an error message telling me that some sort of required plugin was not installed.

Unfortunately, the administrator of that forum has had problems with YaBB for a while. Even though problems were somewhat solved, there were enough members in their forum complaining that he felt compelled to drop YaBB in favor of using phpBB. Evidently, they're still working out the kinks.

You can read about this news here in their forum. Hopefully you can still access that forum as you always have, and if not, at least you can contact them directly for help.

you can try crating a new user account on the forum then post so one of the admins can see you asking for help but it won't be the first time a conversion from one forum to a new forum has lost some data in the process of transferring.

I just tried to register to a new account, but I got a message saying that the required email address I entered is already in use.  I still can't access the forums. Undecided

Have you tried to reset your password on the new forum?

http://forums.simviation.com/phpBB3/ucp.php?mode=sendpassword

Sometimes user names are converted but passwords do not work (don't convert), therefore try resetting your password using your email address. It looks like it is in the database already.

Also sent an email to their webmaster regarding this thread.

Re: Can't retrieve my lost password
Received this email from support and Evan was logged in earlier this morning, we can mark this as sorted.

Thanks! Appreciated.

Yep - some users can't retrieve their details due to a bug in the phpbb3 scripts.

However I have now manually set this user details and will email him now.

Thanks again

Pete

Re: Can't retrieve my lost password
I had also emailed Pete earlier on, but I didn't get a reply back from him, so thanks for updating us.

As with any forum software, problems will occur.

I've kind of considered YaBB to be a business marriage, so whenever problems come up, instead of leaving the marriage, I do my best to work it out. After all, if I end up divorcing YaBB simply because I didn't want to work on my/our problems, it's not like I won't end up having problems in a new business marriage.

This coming June will be my 11th YaBB anniversary! Wink
