Re: Attention - Upcoming Password Changes

Last night i was froze out. I requested a password change probably no less than ten times. It never sent to my ACTIVE email, never came..... I tried again this morning and it went through right away.(Thankfully) I was froze out and ZERO communication. I did not receive and email warning, nada.

My email is my ONLY active email and i checked junk even though TAM emails never go to junk, It just started working right now.

I hope this is all worked out.... It was very confusing and upsetting. but for me, its fine now.

So all is well!

Re: Attention - Upcoming Password Changes

Alright, I was finally able to reset my password. I was worried someone had hacked my username and was posting on my behalf making unfunny comments

The downside of all this, while I was locked out of TAM there were at least 3 relationships I could have saved which now appear to be headed down the drain....

Re: Attention - Upcoming Password Changes

I suspect there will be a lot of people who will never be able to restore their account because the email they used to sign up is no longer active. That almost happened to me. The one I signed up with is no longer valid. I just happened to see the sticky and updated my email. If I hadn't done that, I wouldn't have been able to recover my account because the password reset would have gone to the old address.

Probably what should have been done is send PM's to everyone telling them of this and then allowing 4-6 weeks before changing the pw.

Re: Attention - Upcoming Password Changes

Nope, no email until I requested a password reset this morning. The "contact us" feature didn't work or else that didn't help when I tried to use it. And my email address that's on file is my current one.

Re: Attention - Upcoming Password Changes

This was very disconcerting. I was logged in most of the day yesterday and tried to log in from my phone last night and it kept saying my password was incorrect. Requested a password reset several times that never came. My ex husband has hacked many of my accounts in the past and it really worried me he hacked this one. I just happened to stumble across this technical difficulties forum and was able to figure it out. It also would not let me create a new account so that I could at least get in here and find out what was going on.

I'll get through this, one day at a time.

Re: Attention - Upcoming Password Changes

This is actually MEM2020.

I had to create a new account because I created my MEM2020 account 7 years ago - and have no recollection of the email account I was using back then.

So - when this happened - I could not reset my password.

Had I been given a heads up, I would have updated my email account to the one I currently use.

Please advise.

I think this transition was handled pretty poorly considering the size of the user base, and as LosingHim pointed out, the nature of the subject matter discussed here could cause a lot of unnecessary worry and panic.

Re: Attention - Upcoming Password Changes

First, I thought I was just typing too fast. But, after getting locked out of my TAM account after 5 consecutive failed password attempts last night, and then again this morning, I thought my techie kid might have hacked my account. 'Cuz, you know, deleting me from Facebook every other week has probably gotten boring by now.

Then, I wondered who I might have ****** off on TAM that caused me to be locked out of my account. But, I hadn't really been posting all that much, lately. So, finally, I decided to log in as my hubby, and send the admins a pm asking what was going on. (Don't worry, B1 and I share passwords and he couldn't care less if I log into his account.) That's when I realized that HE was locked out, too, and B1 doesn't even get on TAM, anymore, and rarely ticked anyone off when he did. That's when the lightbulb went off. It wasn't me, it was TAM!!!

I had also noticed an unusually small number of posts in CWI, which rarely occurs. So, I decided to find my way out of CWI and poke around a bit to see if I could find an explanation. After discovering this thread, I used the "forgot password" option and reset my password, myself. No problems getting back on after that.

I wonder how many TAMers have realized that they are in fact suffering from withdrawal and may even need counseling regarding their TAM addiction.

You think? It's not like a mod was caught off guard and got locked out of his account. Oh, wait, nevermind.



Sigh, my wife gives me the speaking treatment.

Same issue here. This is Rowan. I've just created a new user account to see if I can get some help. I guess I registered initially with the email account I set up specifically to use during my divorce. It was a hotmail account, which I don't even think is a thing anymore, and I haven't used it in so long that I now can't access it. I was fairly certain I'd swapped everything over to my "real" email address, but apparently I missed my TAM account.

Any advice on how to proceed?

Re: Attention - Upcoming Password Changes

One thing I will say, and I'm going to be the jerk here a little bit...Some of the responsibility for this issue falls on the user here...this is why it is important to update various website accounts with valid email addresses, update accounts when email addresses change. Use this as an opportunity to make sure that your other accounts on other websites are up to date.
