Hello, I am not a spambot. I am Jostapha, but I got locked out of my bloody account and had to create a new one. I'm me, really I am. How else would I have gotten an activated account, I ask you, if I were a 'bot? Jostapha would tell you I'm not a bot if she could. I still can't get into the ACP, but at least I can post now. Whew! The system is crazy.

The other Admin on this board is Salmonella, and she has gone on vacation for a few weeks (well, not vacation, but she's not around a computer) so she can't reset my password and admin permissions. So here I am, new account, Jostapha the Second. O well. I'm sure I'll be let back in eventually. Unless I'm not. Oh wait, let me see if I can hack her account. Oooh, brb!

Nope, that didn't work. I mean it did, I got into Sally's account (obviously) but she cannot modify my account. "Only founders can modify founders' accounts" is what the ACP says. Dammit. I don't know why - that worked fine on the other forum this happened on, she modified my account when I got locked out of it and all was then well, but not this time. I may be stuck as Jostapha II forever!

:cry:

That means, of course, that there IS no Admin but Sally. She cannot create a new admin, I tried. She can make people into mods, but not into admins. Oy. Life... is never dull!

Well, it was worth a try. I've reset the forum once before, maybe I can reupload the whole thing or restore from a backup before the lockout or something similar. I'll keep fiddling with it.

In the meantime, I have new text to post. See ya over in "Chapters!"

So... I'm back. :shock:

I... turned off the "maximum login attempts" setting while I was Salmonella. Then I ... :oops: ... I ... :oops: ... I ... entered my password in CAPS instead of miniscules. The process didn't say it was case sensitive, so I thought it wasn't. The Captcha program isn't case sensitive!

Bugger, now I'm uber-embarrassed, but glad to be back!

I think I shall make the backup account (Jostapha II) into an admin as well... just for future reference. Then if I get locked out of one account, I can maybe access it from another one. Thank god Salmonella hadn't changed her password like I told everyone to do, because she hadn't been on since that last muckup.

Remember, kiddies: if you need to reset your password, the computer-generated temp password is CASE SENSITIVE!

:oops: :mrgreen:


Oh, and by the way:

Yep, she's not a 'bot, she's me. Really and for true, she's me. But what if the 'bot got into the real Jostapha's account? Oh noes! Who ya gonna trust? :P

Travis, you're officially an ueber-geek. I think all those random characters are insulting. There! I've been insulted! Now we must duel to satisfy my honor. Soon. En Garde!

Though I have nothing against being an uber-geek, those characters are not random!

If you space them right... the make Bobba Fett! (of course, that makes me a super-uber-geek huh?)
