I was locked out since the turn of the new year..I've been trying everything to get back in! But there is no e-mail or # to call if you are unable to log in and the send a new password e.mail doesn't work!I was trying to get a hold of a moderator this morning and got a error on forrum/send a message...I did! well 2 hours later I was still screwing around and got another "password" e-mail...as you can see IT worked! but now I don't know if I activated this from the previous messages or if this was in responce to my last atempt at contacting the admin.!
I need to cancel my request because the problem was fixed but I don't know if admin fixed it or me!
confused...please respond!Also why is there a request to sign in if I'm allready signed in?I'm afraid if I resign in if I'm allready showing in the top corner...I'll mess something up.I'm afraid to sign out now!

I'm here, but there isn't a lot I can offer.

If you go to the "Board Rules/Privacy page by clicking on the link beside "View New Content," there are two links to contact us buried in the Forum Terms & Rules near the bottom, but they are not obvious. That is the only way to send a message here without being signed in.

You could also send an email to info at celiac dot com

This is the first time I have heard of a problem with the password recovery mechanism.

If the email address you registered with is no longer valid, and you have also forgotten your password, then you need an intervention by Scott to change the email address to a valid one.

I'm here, but there isn't a lot I can offer.

Thankyou peter...I apreciate your quick responce!I'm not sure what happened..but theres nothing wrong with my e-mail address and my password didn't work...so I tried to get a new one...and THAT didn't work...so I tried it again....and THAT didn't work!
then because I couldn't contact anyone without loging in which was the problem in the first place...I tried to re-register...(under itsme23)...that worked...but no contact e-mail....then by accident I got forum error message! So I sent a message...but I need you to cancel that because on my 4th try using the previous password e-mail...I seemed to have got things working! BUT I don't need/want a message from admin...saying..."there doesn't seem to be any problem...don't bother us/me"!
Does this make any sense?
p.s. if admin had fixed the error, I suspect I would have received some kind of acknowladement/ which I didn't so I believe my request needs to be canceled!
thanks again
also I copied the info you gave me incase this happens again!

This might help in the future. If you use Firefox you can set it to remember passwords. So it will automatically log you in when visiting the site.

Another thing you can do is create a passwords or account or some other folder name and then store all your passwords in a text file there.

Helps when brain fog is in control of the drivers seat for me.

You can call your passwords file anything you want, jelly donuts is fine. As long as you remember where it is to find it when needed. Some people keep a passwords file on a removeable USB drive as backup. You shouldn't oughta set up automatic login on shared computers though, or public computers. Not a good idea.

I use a program called KeePassX (which is the X Windows version for those of us that use Linux), and for Win users there's KeePass which works great for storing passwords. I just remember the one password, and it's easy to back up the database. Where I used to work I had a Word doc that I password protected to keep my list of passwords. In case that's helpful for future reference.

:lol: :lol: :lol: I have, like, a thousand stickies on the wall near my desk with all my passwords. When I go to a site I haven't been to in a while I have to scan the wall until I find the sticky I need. Your method sounds so much easier. :D

Great Ideas...but remembering the password wasn't the problem! It kept telling me my password was invalad...but it was the same one I allways use! :blink:
So I tried the "I forgot password'...that just told me I was using the correct one but still wouldn't let me in! Then I tried the" get a new password."..3 times (this was friday)...by monday I tried the "this isn't working link ,try this sequence "again....finally got some where....switched my password back to my original, and here I am! I just wanted to make sure I didn't mess anything up with all the enteries and things I did to get there! LOL :D :P :rolleyes:
Seems to be OK now...I've had this problem before...when I originaly regesterd and set everything up...It wouldn't let me in and I had a huge hassle getting back in..took a few days then too!(probably due to my computers security and the fact its a shared computer, I don't know...I really don't understand alot about the workings of these things)!But the important thing is I'm back in!

Go to the forum index page. Down at the bottom you will see "The moderating team". Click on that and then click on Admin's profile,(the first listing) and click on "send me a message" and make your request to Scott.
