Password/username reset for CentOS forums.

Greetings all:

Iím trying to log into my account at CentOS Forums and no matter how I try nothing works.

First it states that my account is inactive and in order to reactivate it I should logon in and Iíll get an email to my email account to reactivate it.

Second it states that I should contact a forum administrator in order to get help however, I have to login to contact such administrator and once again I canít log in.

This is really a ďcatch 22Ē.

The first I even tried to log back in after a long period on not using it sent me a message to my recovery account to which I responded and tried to chance my email address which the forum never acknowledged.

So now I canít log in nor contact a board administrator to get help.

Any help and suggestions will be appreciated.

try opening a new account, that will allow you to contact the admins and ince your old account is back up you can ask that the tempory account be delryed
