    I lost my name
    My old log-in for ABW didn't work so I tried to re-register my name, Catwoman. It was already taken!?! Did anybody else have this problem or did someone really register my name?

    lost mine too
    Well, it let me register my name but my old info is lost.

    Sigh - the old username login was texasvicki
    I did ask for the old to be sent but it would never do it.

    Haiko, can you merge mine too?

    Thanks!

    Had the same problem, but it fixed itself all up after I clicked on the link in the *first* email and reset the my password through the email. That created a second email with a password code which was accepted.

    I was asked for the email address the first time.

    Some days it helps to click on links eight or nine times to speed things up, but don't tell my MIL that.

    I see I'm now labelled a 'newbie' with a join date of Jan 2005.

    I liked the old registration date better. Guess that went with the old board?

    I can't post under Leader anymore either, and no luck with CodeJockey's method. It let me in, but without any permissions. I'll send a message with the old email and new one...

    Oh, of course I want to post as Leader and not this new name!

    (Email sent!)

    I never wanted to post so bad until I couldn't. Had to use different name - imagine using my REAL name! Maybe I'll keep it.

    Another thing - it's nice not to be the only newbie any more!

    Trick or Treat
    Ok, I thought I could trick it by going to the old system and having it e-mail me my password. It sent it to me without a problem but I still can't login here under my old account.. Any more ideas???

    Hmm, couldn't get in with my old info, but same name available so it looks cool. Just checking if the posting works and the avatar took...

    Looks cool all around though Haiko.

    This is what Haiko has posted on the old ABW, I did follow all the steps earlier and not a problem at all. Everything worked fine for me from the very begining.

    Try following the steps and I hope everything work for all as well.

    We need to complete the member migration to the new board, so I am closing the OLD ABW and want you to try to login at the new one ( http://forum.abestweb.com ) following these paraphrased instructions Ahmar posted and did:
    1. Try to login and enter any password, it will prompt you with password not correct, click the "Forgot your password?" link.

    2. The system will ask you to enter your email, simply enter the email address you used to register on the old ABW. If you don't remember email me haiko@abestweb.com with your username and I will mail it to you (this will take some time as I foresee multiple requests). If you remembered your email addy and entered it, then the activation email will be sent.
    3. Click the link in the email you just recieved (if you didn't get the email check your spam filter because our servers are sending password requests in less than 0.002 seconds from the request).
    4. After you click the link a second email will be sent and it will contain your new password.
    5. Then go back to http://forum.abestweb.com and try to login with the new password (sent in the last [second email] if it prompts you something like "You do not have permission.........." try to login the 2nd time, it should then let you in and post.
    If you have any questions please email me at haiko@abestweb.com

    ahmar,

    That won't work for everyone.

    Maybe I've missed it, but has everyone simply lost all their old posts (we're neewbie's now), PM's and their old nick?

    Ok Haiko, since we're all Newbies here and my name show up as (Jan72) instead of Mr. Sal, how about getting the name (Sal) just plain like that.

    Sal.

    I tried logging in with the new password I got in the e-mail. I could log in, but still not post or edit my profile, etc. I re-registered and now I'm kinda getting used to seeing my "real" name up there.

    I followed the steps posted on the old ABW, the same ones ahmar quoted above. So far, no problem... (aside from being a newb and needing to create a sig)
