How can I find out, or reset, my forum username (/not/ password)

Posted

Hi,

I've forgotten my forum username. Resetting the password sends me a new password but that's useless without my username.

I can't set up a new account because it says "an account with that e-mail address already exists".

I can't use my e-mail address to log in either.

So I'veborrowed a friend's e-mail, but how can I set up or restore my account on my e-mail address?

Thanks,

Evan
