Locked Out Of My Old Account

Post by StupidVarietyHour »

Hello everyone, my name is Ethan, but you probably don't know me. I, back in July, made a case that I am still half-proud of. The account's name was Kadakruss. When I went to log on to the account a fee months ago, it wouldn't let me because "Maximum login attempts allowed. As well as your username and password, you must now pass the CAPTCHA test" or something along those lines. Except, there was no test that showed up. I went to reset my password and it gave me a 404. I contacted the admins a few months back to no response. I've tried logging in from multiple devices. Does anyone know if I can fix this or if my old account is gone forever? And I've taken the suggestion of using Firefox. No luck. I've also tried Chrome and Microsoft Edge. Nothing. I've even installed the new version of Java. Nope. Any help appreciated.

Glad to hear that. In future, for account recovery problems, you're best off contacting the site admin, Unas. His email address is on the front page, and he's the only person who can help with this sort of thing.
