    old forums account inaccessible

    My old ubuntu forums account, Dopaque, is now inaccessible to me. http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=651593

    If I used an old hotmail account as the email, I'm SOL because that hotmail account was hacked and then destroyed -_-

    If it is a gmail account I still have it but it wasn't linked to Dopaque/didn't allow me to login

    HELP I can try to prove I own that account if you like, I made it in 2008.

    Dopaque used a gmail account.

    I have three gmail accounts, ja<snip> is clearly for this one, so it's between je<snip> and ja<snip>r . I have access to both; what should I do?

    I'm trying to get rid of my full name account because I don't like having my full name floating around out there (actually, can we delete these threads once this is finished ^^

    You need to set the je<snip> address as your Ubuntu One preferred. I've disassociated this account from SSO, so once the email change is made you should be able to access your original account.

    We don't delete posts or accounts, nor do we usually edit posts in this subforum, We can/will snip the email addresses.
