Account Disappeared

9 posts in this topic

I signed up as marinersk.

Went through the verification steps.

Posted several items.

Updated my VIN in the 450 list.

Had a lovely side conversation.

 

Got several notices via E-Mail from the board.

 

Noticed the other day my posts were listed as being "Guest".

Tried to log in as "marinersk" and it says no such user.

 

Help?

Did I do something wrong?

Have done; no response.  What's a normal wait time?

No idea on why the original account came and wet - I found no record of it.

Interesting.

 

If you're curious, check the VIN database forum for WMEAJ00F25J154685; my comment is still there and it knows the name under which the comment was made.

 

If not, no worries.  I guess I can be marinersk2 :: sigh ::

 

Question, though.  I'm still listed as a Guest; I recall reading... something... somewhere... about doing... something... to get "upgraded" out of "Guest" status.

What needeth I do?

I am seeing your "new" screen name ( marinersk2 ) in the above posts, but under the silhouette where a picture is usually posted, you are listed as a "new member".   That will be upgraded shortly to "regular member".

I also took the '2'I think it automatically changes at 10, but I will go in and force it to change now.

 

I also removed the '2' from the username - as the old one is gone, it wasn't prevented from being changed.
