New Forum


It's a bit Hard, to get into the new Mepis forum.

basically, I Gave up, in the end
- couldn't get the system, to go past the " too many attempts" error.

The <forum> site admin is hard to get hold of, so can't I can't resolve the issue.

I was a member of the old <Mepis> forum, for some time ......


Edit: - did get a reply to my 'join' application & that 'link' did work.
But - the system won't reconize any other "log-in".

This post doesn't seem to make very much sense (at least not by itself) :/. pierre2, do you have a question or problem or ...?

You also need to post error messages in their entirety, as well as what you were doing at the time of the error. Otherwise, how do you expect to get any help?

pierre2,

Are you referring to the shift away from vBulletin on mepislovers.org?

Yep, with the shift to the new open-source,
I tried to register with the new community site,
but can't log-in.

I'd like to get hold of the site admin, for help,
but they auto-responder blocks any contact's with the admin.

I could re-register under another user-name, but would prefer not to.

I haven't tried to log in to the new system, I've just looked at it. Keep posting your progress, & good luck.

I finally DID get back into the "new" forum.

- managed to get the auto-reply to send a 'new' pwd.
which I then changed, anyway.

Good going.

Was it difficult? Would you mind posting a few details? -- It might help others w/ the same problem, including perhaps me.

just under the log-in
there is 'forgot pwd' & 'resend activation'

I used that 2nd option, & this time - it worked.
