New Name

Hey Girls!!

I have been trying to get on in the last couple of days and just haven't been able to get on. I can't remember my password and I can't remember the email that I used Sad

My Old user name use to be SamanthaX3

So I decided to create a new username since I have 4 children instead of 3 anyways.

Hopefully I don't forget my password this time Smile

Time to go make a new signature.

Samantha

If you want, I think you can ask MissyJ to reset the password and your sn.

Samantha and Asha,

Please email Missy at [EMAIL=missyj@pregnancy.org]missyj@pregnancy.org[/EMAIL] with both your old and new usernames, along with the email address associated with your accounts. She can take a look and see what might be up with the original accounts. If you joined prior to November 2008, and your profile was not completed (as we reminded prior to the most recent update), it is quite possible that it finally locked you out. She can reset things and get you up and running again.

Please make sure your email settings allow for emails from pregnancy.org to avoid them getting filted into your junk/spam folders or otherwise deleted.

Also, I would recommend that you both log out and clear caches (cookies/temp files/etc) on any and all devices you visit PO on... otherwise if you have picked up a corrupt cookie somewhere it could continue to cause issues even once Missy resets the accounts.

HTH

Hi you two!

These blocks were most likely happening on your accounts for one of two reasons:

1)The email address associated with your account was inactive. After three hard bounces of emails, due to the software and security laws we are bound by, it automatically puts a block on your account. The fix? Contact me with your username and CURRENT email address you want tied to your account. I will reset your account for you, remove the block, and notify you once it is restored.

2)You received an email from Pregnancy.org and flagged it as spam. If you do that, again, the software/security that we are bound by will block your account. (I.e. you can't label a site as spam and then have it legally be allowed to continue to contact you.) Solution: Again, contact me. I'll reactivate the account, suggest you add "*@pregnancy.org" to your approved contact list; and advise that if you receive email that you don't want just delete it, or -- if you prefer -- unsubscribe. (It is important to note that doing so will remove you from receiving any email from the site including subscriptions for boards, pm notices, etc. as there currently is no way to separate them out.)

Since you both already created new accounts, at this point simply let me know if you want to merge your old stats/history over to your new username. If you do want to merge email me with the following information:

Old Username and New Username (indicate which you want to keep)
Email address you want to have associated with your account

HTH!
~Missy (missyj@pregnancy.org)

It makes sense now! I actually like to start "from the beginning" again, there is some thrill to gaining those pencils Wink
