I cannot re-register my baraba account. I received no email about it and when I try to do a password retrieval nothing gets sent. I've been a member of the site for 15 years and during a major tournament everyone gets kicked off. Unreal.
Is there a way someone can help get my old account back?

I have a feeling the old accounts are gone. I'm not sure how they'll give them back.

I went through the forgot password route and it worked alright.

The hosting account they use probably lets them send only 200 emails/hour . The reset it's working out now. If you have access to tapatalk you can ask a password reset from there or pm one of the admins as they can change it and give you a temporary password. Bad timing for doing this, even social networks announce it a month early at least and they suggest doing it while here developers just forced users out.

I don't get why did they update the forum to a 2013 version of vbulletin full of exploits , althrough i had a type 7 password if they access the database anyone can reverse it so it's just the same as having "fluffy" as password.

Yes, one might very well do just that.

they are sending mass emails now, so i reckon yours is in line baraba, keep us posted as if u are not getting in

like jefe, if you try to log in normally with your account, and thne because it doesnt accept your password, you chose the option "forgot password", it should be working, you should be receiving an email with a link to how to replace your password....wasnt working for many hours, but yesterday was already and should be now.....maybe its just a bit slower now due to the amount of emails that are being sent

we are working with VS on the issue of the inactive emails

My weekly rant!

27th May 1965: Over 16,000 days.

"For a moment there I returned to my youth, the early youth, when all nice illusions were gathered together. Then life came and, like a strong wind, blew them away, one by one. What we call happiness is sometimes the accordance between our life and circumstances, our biography and history, our personal aspirations and historical currents. If I look at things that way, I can say: I was born too early to be happy. But birth is one of the many things we do not get to choose. It is part of our destiny."

Silly measure, silly timing!
So you can have the same password as earlier? So basically this whole exercise was pointless and did nothing but make the forum hemorrhage members and cause problems for the admins/cm's who got minimal warning about this from VS?

Yes

If they want to pretend that they have upgraded their security, it makes sense to follow best practices, which include to not use a password that's been used for the last 6 months

Ok, so this was a total fcuk up. Well done.

Have contacted admins twice in order to get my old account connected to my new email with no luck. What was the point of all this? That the password requirements weren't tough enough before so some hacker can bruteforce it? Who gives a shit, what are they gonna do with my account, post "Cristiano is wank" ? Jesus christ.

Don't be silly, some people here share personal information in their PMs.

Anyways, what is your problem? E-mail not active?

My current email is connected to the account michelco2 which I tried to create yesterday since this all went tits up. The email connected to my proper account michelco I've no clue about since I registered 10 years ago. I just need someone to connect my current email to the michelco account, however I can't get a response.

The easier and fast way is for JCam to reset your password in your original account and send it to this account. Then you can log on, change it and modify your email as you like.

That would work. I'm a moderator at the Valencia forum and I need to delete Steven's posts when Sweden gets battered against Italy ASAP
