my user account seems to have been blown away...

Have something to say about forums.debian.net itself?

my user account seems to have been blown away...

Postby wizard10000 » 2019-04-16 23:22

Been getting invalid username errors for a couple days now - was able to re-create my account just now with the same username, password and email address.

My posts appear to be missing from threads in which I've posted. Not sure what blew up here but as far as the board's concerned it appears I never existed :cry:

i remember seeing your posts with wizard1000 not 10 thou
can you check if your old username is that?

its not possible for a forum cms to allow creation of another account with the same username. the first step would be cross reference db for existing accounts

Thanks - stuff happens and I'll just have to build this account until it exceeds the glory of the previous one :mrgreen:

Look on the bright side - I got a do-over :D

cheers -

In all seriousness though, this means we've lost your iwlwifi tips thread:

viewtopic.php?f=16&t=121696

That was very useful.

Thanks - I can make that my first do-over. Will do so this weekend :)

edit: sticking this here for safekeeping; the wayback machine comes through again :mrgreen:
