    Folks, this is "Herald." Last week I tried to log in to the BB and I was unable to. I used the password recovery feature but it said my email address was not recognized. I have been using the same email address for years. In fact I am still using it. There is no link on the BB that allowed me to contact an Administrator or Moderator. I am friends with a BB member on Facebook, and he tried to contact someone on my behalf, but I never heard back from them. I do not know why someone would want to hack my account. Anyway, I had to register again under a new username. I thought it would avoid confusion to let the good people in this forum know that.

    Thanks. I'd still like to go back to Herald, but I won't push it. I'm just glad to be back.

    Thank you, Squire, for helping me restore my "Herald" account. Take that, hacker.

    Why dont you take a name like "Reformed Herald", so that you could keep part of your old user identity?


    well, i see you have your name back.

    Case closed!!

    I strongly urge all members to use a robust password for their accounts. PM me for an idea or two.
