Change password for this forum
« on: December 31, 2016, 02:24:09 pm »
I have a forum account that connects to a very old email address that I have no access to. I also cannot remember the password to this account. I can login using the security question but when I go to the account options to change my email or password I am blocked because I MUST have the current password.

How can I change my current password?

At least you will have to give evidece that you are who you claim to be.
Maybe then the forum admin will sent you a new password for your old account.

I do not know who the forum admin is though.

Just pm'ed.

As Bart points out, once it is "plausible" established that you are the owner of the other account, the password can be changed for you

The process will continue via pm
