    I do believe in killing the messenger...
    Want to know why?
    Because it sends a message!

    I hate paying taxes! Why must I pay thousands of dollars in taxes when everything I buy is taxed anyways!

    If you were in WoO when you took your break you aren't now. I checked the rosters.
    I'm not looking for forgiveness, and I'm way past asking permission. Earth just lost her best defender, so we're here to fight. And if you want to stand in our way, we'll fight you too.

    I doubt even tech support can help, but I will hope for the best, and you just forgot your password. I will take this moment to remind people of some good security practices;
    • Never use the same password and user ID on anything else.
    • When email can be used as the user ID, create a new email just to be used for this purpose and nothing else.
    • Passwords should be very unique and unpredictable.
    • Sometimes just sharing too much personal information online can create a problem (such as Facebook).
    • Worst of all, many gold scammers fully intend to steal your account and use it to spam the next gullible person.
    Keep informed and stay safe. <3

    well i can see all my old posts so the arc side is obviously ok.
    @sandukutupu: don't use same pw, it is unique, don't use FB or any other such guff. and not sure why they can't recover my account if i can evidence who i am and that over the years i have been playing it is my email account they have been corresponding with?

    what is strange is that if i enter my profile using the avatar pic it shows my old account, if i enter profile using link at top of page it says i have only just joined.....confused.com

    You seem to be able to log in fine on the Forums.

    I am not certain to what degree the ingame username/password is connected to the Forum one, but I would assume it is the same database used for usernames and passwords.

    So are you 100% certain it is not a fat finger problem somewhere?

    no mate checked and rechecked...even went as far as copy and pasting email from forum to game log in.

    I talked to Stray. Apparently Bob swept you out with guild cleaning. So there's no what at this point to know when you left WoO. If you get your account back she say's you're welcome to return.
