Forgot my password

Well, that didn't take long. Silly me.

I don't see a way to reset it. Can the moderators help me, please?

Based on numerous previous threads with the same problem (including one of mine :oops: ), I'm guessing that the "official" policy is just to make a new account, and this time write your password down somewhere.

(I know I'm not a mod, but the mods are pretty busy and don't always reply to these kinds of threads (case in point: I waited 4 days with the same "lost my password problem!" without getting a reply))

I'm in the same boat. I guess I'll just create another account?

When I signed up for the forums after signing up to submit a bot, apparently chrome replaced its saved password for my submission account with the password for my forums account. Having two different accounts with the same username at the same domain really confused it (and me)...

I'd really like some way to recover my account, though, if at all possible.

In this situation, come to the IRC channel (See global announcement at the top of all forums) and see if one of the organizers there can help you (Amstan is the most likely). Failing that you can create another account, but follow what Mistmanov did and note in your "About Me" section the account you are replacing or you risk having all your accounts disabled.
