You’d have to beg GbMod.

What’s up with your old account? Can’t remember password? He might be able to reset that for you

I overhauled all of my email addresses a couple of years ago and the one i signed up with here in 2006 i deleted. Then when i came back to the forum site i was signed out and when i tried to sign back in i had forgotten my password and the email address to reset it had been deleted.

I wanted to make a poll on something, but i can't currently with a standard membership. Even when i signed up again there was no option for that... its a shame for new members to not have that option.... does the mod even care about this site anymore?

I don't know exactly how I got premium, it just happened on the final day of the logo comp, Rols told me to check my status. When I asked he just said "Contacts". Sorry, can't help beyond that but maybe beg Rols nicely, he'll know you're the old Scotguy :)

I can empathise only too well with that. My original Apple ID got hacked from China few years back. I went to the Apple Store and got a new one made up, but now whenever I try to use various legacy Apple devices it’s an annoying and usually futile pain to get them to recognise my identity - I’ve even got a laptop I can’t use because I can’t remember the password for it and I can’t reset because it was linked to the old ID. Not to mention the pains of needing to generally regularly change various passwords on different sites and trying to remember and keep track  of which one’s which.

As to Yoshi, yes, I arranged that with GbMod simply because I wanted to retire properly from the logo comps and he really needed to be able to start polls if he was going to continue with them (sorry Yoshi, surely you can tell I’ve lost my enthusiasm for the comps and it’s not like I can do the graphics for them any more anyway. I’m still available if you need a sounding board).

I doubt GbMod would be pleased to be inundated with requests for premium memberships, and as you noted the GBids store is no longer. But he’s likely to help you reset your old account if you requested nicely.

I've tried that but no joy.... i don't feel that he cares about members here these days..... I will probably terminate my membership after the Beijing Games. The 0 points in the logo comp was the board telling me something... 15 years is not a bad run.

He read my message 3 days ago but has ignored me completely. I guess i am not a valued member after 15 years.

Anyway is it just me or is there heaps more ads now on the site? i am even getting pop ups...

I'm still a PM but I have seldom been on since 2018...and only show up around a games event. The Forums participation looked like it peaked around 2010 - 2014...And then the powers that be did that epic accounts reset. 

There is still a place for the forum and probably more so as people start to turn away from certain Social Media platforms and re-engage in the old longform way. 

As for "pop-ups"...That's what pays for the site now. i have paid membership for for over a decade...Never got a reminder or notice.

I'm wondering if GB should adopt a Patreon system?...

Sorry Scotguy, I forgot to say that I hadn’t realised you had started this thread when I started this other one. Sorry about that :)
