If you are one of the multitude that either has forgotten your password or not activated your message board account we hope you find the following tips helpful.
Click the “LOGIN” button.
Enter your username (you may as well attempt the password).
If the login is unsuccessful, to the right of the password field click the link that says “Forgot Your Password?”
Enter either your “Username” or “Email” then click the “Retrieve Password” button.
An email will be sent the address you used in your initial registration for the message boards. It should be delivered instantly. If it is not in your in box try looking in the junk mail or spam box. If you have your settings to delete all junk and spam automatically, you may want to change that setting temporarily.
If you are able to login with the correct username/password you come to a prompt requiring your “Activation Key”. If this is no longer in your email try the following.
Account Never Activated:
Click the link above the Activation Field that says “….sent to you by clicking here”.
Go to your email account and click the activation link.
That’s about it. You should now have an active account for the message boards to take full and active participation.
Vegetarianism, not always a good thing. It can in some extreme cases lead to genocide.
This video featuring ProBoards' Ryan Roos explains how to login if you already have an account but haven't visited since the v5 upgrade. It also explains how to register on ProBoards and Stepping Out of Squalor if you have never been here before.
If you were forced to pick a new username because the old username was "taken", click this link in the bottom right hand corner of your screen: On the 'Select Account' page click the link near the bottom that says 'Link another forum account' On the next page, type your old forum username and your old forum password It SHOULD allow you access with your old account.
If it doesn't, go back to the same screen, fill in your forum username and click 'Forgot your password?' to have ProBoards send you a password reset to get in. They will need to send an email to the address on your old v4.5 profile. If you don't find it, check your spam filter. If it isn't there, add [email protected] to your email white list and try again.
If your email account is different from the one posted on your previously registered profile and is no longer valid, you'll need to create a new account on Stepping Out of Squalor. Let us know your old and current usernames and we will match your old post count and place a link on your old account to your new one.
