Just wondering how many of us have lost our old board names? Ive been ACE for about 2 years, here and elsewhere.
I've lost mine, too.boy nigel

I've had to use "boy nigel" since the board began requiring my registration for posts/replies. I used to be just "nigel," and I contacted Gregg and his buds about the problem, but they couldn't help me, for some reason. Problem was, I'd forgotten my password (since I'd never been required to use it until the board changed). One day, I went to post, and I needed to enter my user name and password. For some reason, I wasn't already logged on as "nigel," as I'd been in the past without ever having to re-register or log on. Tried all the possibilities, but none of them worked. Frustrating. It seemed silly that the admins weren't able to find my password somewhere in a database or something. Oh well.

Glad I'm not the only one (though I wouldn't wish it on you).

I don't recall ever registering and don't put in a password when I read and post to this board. Last year I was posting fairly often but took a break over the winter. When I began again this spring I couldn't remember what name I used when posting last year and simply decided to use my real name. Maybe I registered, my memories good, just short! Nonetheless I don't have to put in a password and have no trouble. Strange.

I don't remember ever registering either, but I must have because I don't see Steve H on the board. I hate registration. I recently attended a Security seminar and they said you should use passwords that are hard to figure out. I'm good at it too. I have at least a half dozen out there that even I can't crack.

I too registered back, long before the board change/update, but last week it wanted my password (which I had forgotten) - E-mailed Admin. for my password, and a week later, still no response. Oh well. Same name as before, but now only a "guest". Feels like a demotion.
Who else would want "shmoo"? nmshmoo
