View Full Version : Match8 is a Dirty Birch...
11-14-2007, 09:52 AM
Couldn't get the new system to email me a new password for my Match8 account after numerous attempts, so I did a new registration as the "Dirty Birch". The Match8 account is in the new system but without getting a password...no can use!
Anyway, new site looks good! Now I will go exploring!

You have to fill out the lost password then it emails you the password to the email account then you click on the linky thing then enter the new password it gives you then change the password back to your old password... LOL :B

And I know when I had my password emailed to me, I found the email in my spam folder so if you didn't receive it, I would check there.

Dooed, you have to realize who we are trying to educate here......

Hey Match! I was shocked to see the new look of this sight as I hadn't been out here in several months. I too had to redo my password. I just changed it back to my old one when I got in. :)

I AM BACK
Same here so now insted of being SGT Halm I am just Sarge. The only draw back is I am now a junior member and I am not sure if that will matter.
Looks like I lost all my post stats also.

Heya Sarge, good to see ya made it, lol. Give it some time as the system does send the neccessary info to get in with your old accounts Star ratings are lost however as stated in my Sticky at the top of the page.
The notifications are working, and the pass may be sent to your spam box as Mrs. Wilson stated. I've gotten over 120 post notifications/private messages in the last few days and some have come through as spam. Over time, things will get back on track. I'm just thankfull that we have a place where we can all meet again and get our sledtalk on.

yeah, I've been a member several years but now it shows me as a jr member. That kinda stinks. it's gonna take a few visits to get the jist of the site, but so far i like it.

True to a point Spanky. However, it doesn't matter if it shows junior, senior, or old fart. As long as a person is respectful, they're Snowtracks family, lol.

Alright there XCR...I resemble that remark!:D
Before I went to the drastic measure of the new registration, I followed the directions of getting the password issued many many times, although I never received the email with the link that Dooed spoke of. Hell, maybe the new system thought I was a terrorist trying to break in I tried so many times!
I also check my ISP's screened mail to make sure the emails weren't sitting in a junk folder. I sent my ISP a message asking if for some reason mail from the outnetwork.com was blocked on the mchsi.com server but I have not received a response from them. It never has been blocked before when I have corresponded with Bob or Gary.
I didn't post this thread because I was upset about it. I thought with the new diggs here at ST the management would want to know any quirks people where having so they could check to make sure the problem wasn't with the new format. This problem might very well be in my mail server. I just thought they would like to know.
As far as losing my status or old posts...I never really said anything very useful anyway!:p

I have double checked my email settings to make sure all spam blockers and screening is off. The only things I can think of is possibly the snowtracks mail server doesn't like the hyphen in my email address or the domain the password email is coming from is blocked by my provider.
Could someone that hasn't deleted the email that they got the password link tell me the email address that the email comes from so I can check with my provider, MediaCom, to make sure they do not have a block on that domain?
Match8, I mean Dirty Birch...I'm so cornfused!:confused:

I received my password e-mail from "firstname.lastname@example.org' . The whole process was smooth. But I did have to remember which e-mail account I had specified when I signed up to the forum in the first place. If you possibly changed e-mails along the way, that could be a problem.
11-15-2007, 11:03 AM
How are you? I went back into the old ST system and check my registered email address and is was the one I was trying. Still didn't work. As a long shot I also tried changing my email address in the old system to an address I have with no punctuation in it. It allowed me to change the email address in the old system but since the information had already been transfered the new system did not recognize the email change I made on the old system, I assume.
I am going to send an email to mediacom to make sure that outnetwork.com hasn't been blocked recently. I just corresponded with Gary, who was using that same email address, last week when I inquired as to when the system would be back up.
This really isn't that big of a deal. I just like digging to find out why sometimes. Anyway, I'm back in the playground now as a Dirty Birch!

It took me like 10 trys and i finally got my password. site looks good.
11-15-2007, 01:33 PM
Keep trying on the passwords. It took me 3 times and a full day to recieve mine.
11-15-2007, 04:52 PM
Gosh, I got mine and signed in, and spent maybe 15 minutes once I found that the forum was back up and running. Not sure why it went so well for me, and others have experienced frustration.
Match/Brich. it's good to have ya here no matter what you're calling yourself. It's nice to see a lot of the old names starting to show up again. I'm sure there will be a few that we'll need to re-learn.
