    Yes, I am nearly new. For whatever reason I found I needed to log in as usual, but couldn't remember password so had to register again. I've written the info needed down now so it shouldn't happen again..........................or will it?


    I am islandman and islandman171 and the reason is, i couldn't remember my password so had to join again. Ideally some well meaning mod will help me through this mess please.

    Am I correct in that you wish to be just islandman? Let me know if yes and I'll change you back (your new password will still work).

    I logged out of islandman171 and then tried the islandman log in name and entered the password I thought it was and it is. So, I am going to log out then in again to see how I go.

    Yes, I did it twice and think I know where the issue is. When I come to this site, entered is a very old unused email address and the password is entered thus************.

    I change the old email address to the one I now use and ASSUME the password is my chosen one,then click on the appropriate button to get in. But clearly the password is an old one. Once I have entered the one I now use, I am in.

    Snicker.

    As you can see, we've merged yourself together ... stitched you up ... you are now one with yourself! :D Hope things continue to work with your password...

    In return for your help, I intend to use this forum more frequently now. I know from previous use, some members talk way over my head so I have to let them go, but provided you can cope with this old duffer asking away, then I will use on a daily basis, in fact I will now move you from "occasional use" folder, to "Daily use". Can't be fairer than that can I?
