Okay, I have been posting to this forum for some time. I always keep a record of my usernames and passwords for certainty so when I was blanked I entered my details carefully but I still wasn't recognised.  After several attempts over a number of days nothing had improved so I have setup a new account and that works fine (or I wouldn't be posting this would I?)

Strangely when I sign on in areas other than this forum all my old details come up with no problems so what's happening? Adrifran39 is my username why wouldn't this forum accept it?:(

By "more information" I need to know things like what steps you took (I assume "tried to login using my old credentials") and what error message(s) were displayed.

The response to my original username was that either my username or password are incorrect but this is not so - it gets me into other areas of the website - and all the info from the original username comes up with the new Bewildered account and I have not re-entered it! Can you not check if the username is still in existence on the forum?

Old account seems fine.

Have you tried resetting the password for your old account?

Have you checked capitalisation ?
I had a problem with my name being different from my login as i used auto settings and forgot the difference.

Not that I know of.
Just thought of two more things...

1. Try a different browser.

2. Try a different computer.
