    How do I find my old forum account?

    I don't just want my old name, I want my history, too. I can't remember what email address I used to create my forum account. Was it possible in the old days to create an account without an email address? I'm going through all of my email addresses, and I can't find anything in them that says "Welcome to Ubuntu or anything like that.

    What can I do about it?

    Absolutely nothing at all if we don't have any idea what your previous profile was.

    My user name should be DeadlyOats. I seem to have forgotten to add that tiny bit of info.... I suppose it would have been helpful...

    Re: How do I find my old forum account?

    Per your PM to me, I found my old email address. I even found the email from Ubuntu forums about the security compromise and its advice to change my passwords everywhere else I visit. I changed the preferred email address in Ubuntu One to that address, but when I logged in to the forums, it still logged me in as fdXYJYk. What else do I need to do to connect to my old account?

    ok - I've dealt with the openid field - so when you next login it should find the DeadlyOats account.
