[RESOLVED] Password reset nightmare

Hi, I have just registered and activated my account as per email I was sent. Unfortunately I got in a bit of muddle with my password and needed to reset it. When I clicked the 'forgotten password' link it did not recognise the email address. So I am locked out ! I cannot understand why as the password I used, email address and the username I used were initially accepted when I activated the account. I do not know who I need to contact and if I can use the forums_At_infomaction_com to ask for assistance ? Which is why I have decided to post here for help with a different Username as I am unable to use the one I registered with ! Nightmare. I would really appreciate if someone is able to suggest what I need to do.

What username did you sign up using?
(Don't know that I can do anything with it anyhow, but still should help.)

I've just used the "Forgotten password" form with your username (Lplate) and the email address you registered with, and it apparently worked.
You've either entered a wrong email address upon registration, or in this password retrieval form, or you've mistyped your username.
If you did not receive any email from this forum in the past minutes, please send me an email from your preferred address (my address can be read at https://maone.net/ ) and I'll check / fix it for you.
