I was locked out of DU for weeks!

I requested a new password and didnít receive an email until today. If that ever happens again, how do I contact you to solve the problem?

1. at the very bottom of the page is a link to contact

Hit it and you will find email address for admins.

2. Do they respond to those emails?

I know in the "Ask the Administrator" forum,
I have waited weeks for responses over my years here.

4. Most sites have a RESET password button......



That happens to me as well . I often change my password and write it down to remember it. Just RESET your password and write it down and keep it in a safe place.

6. Go to discussionist and ask the admins there. Run by the same people.

There is a contact link at the bottom of the webpage.

7. Same.

I was locked out on terrible November 8 2016 when the site was hacked... tried the email new password feature dozens of times... tried the admin emails no reply... about a week ago the new password button worked inexplicably after a year and a half. Sucked lurking but I'm happy to be back.
