Problem logging in?
« on: June 30, 2006, 11:51:50 PM »
I seem to have a problem logging into the mud.
I type 'N' to create a new account, it inquires for an account name.
So, I decide to use "Kywyn" after this is simply stops responding for a bit,
When I press enter again after a couple of seconds it simply says, "Your account name must be longer than 3 characters."

Here's a log of what happened.

                           
Welcome to Armageddon!    


You may:              
(N) Create a new account      
(C) Connect to your account
(V) Toggle ANSI/VT100 mode  
(B) Toggle 'brief' menus
(D) Documentation menu
(X) Exit Armageddon
(?) Read menu options
                         




Read the documentation  
menu before creating your  
character, please.
                           
Armageddon is OPEN.
Choose thy fate:
N

Please enter a name for your account:  
Kywyn

Your account name must be at least 3 characters long.
Press RETURN to continue
------------------------------------------------------------------

Very odd, I didn't think that this account name was taken, until I decided to search through all my old emails, seeing if I had, on the off chance, created an account here and forget about it. Turns out I had, same name as well. Kywyn. Anyways, I dug up the password, and this time attempted to connect with my Kywyn account.
Again, here is a log of what happened.

Wrong password.

------------------------------------------------------
The thing is, I copied and pasted the password exactly as it was in the email...Anyone know what i'm doing wrong, or is MUSHClient just acting up on me?
(I also took the liberty of removing the ASCII art as it messed everything up when I previewed it :))
-Thanks for listening.

Hey buddy.

I would suggest to email MUD@ginka.armageddon.org and ask them.

You win Armageddon, congratulations!  Type 'credits', then store your character and make a new one

Hmmm, alright. I'll go do that and attempt to re-establish connection in a bit.

-Thanks again, and if anyone does know what actually happened with that, i'd like to know ;)

If you've already created an account but never used it, and can't remember the password, I don't think they'll mind terribly if you just make a new one.

Nah, I found the password, I just can't log in (Constantly thinks that the password they emailed me is wrong) and I can't create a new one :)

Could you have possibly changed the password after they emailed it to you? Try going over whatever passwords you use.

This could probably best be solved by using the request tool to get a password change, 'cause something seems to have gone wrong somewhere.
Any questions, comments, or condemnations to an eternity of fiery torment?

Heh, that's a possibility as well.

Also, I can't create another account because my email address is still tied to my other, password forgotten account.

________________________________________

Armageddon is OPEN.
Choose thy fate:
N

Please enter a name for your account:  
Laji

Are you sure you want to create this account?  
y

You are about to enter the email associated with your account.
When you enter your email, a random password will be generated
and mailed to it, so it is very important that you don't typo
your email address, or enter an incomplete version.  Please
take a moment to check that the address you have entered is
correct.  If you enter a fake address, you will not receive
the password and will not be able to access your account. The
email address is used ONLY to send information about your
account and characters; wei do not sell or give the email
addresses out to anyone.

Armageddon is currently allowing free email adresses to be used
in creating accounts.  This is an experiment, and we may return
to the old system of not allowing them to be used without prior
approval by the staff.

If you have any problems entering your email address, please mail
      mud@ginka.armageddon.org

IMPORTANT: hotmail.com no longer accepts e-mail from armageddon.org
           addresses.  Until they do you should not change your email
           address to anything at hotmail.com as you will not get
           approval emails or other information sent from the game.
Enter your e-mail address:  
<My email address here>


That email is already registered to another account.  If you already have
an account, and have forgotten the password to it, mail
mud@ginka.armageddon.org.

Enter your e-mail address:  
_________________________________________-

So, ehm, yeah...I'm going over all the passwords I wrote down.

Hi Kywyn, welcome back to Armageddon.  In the future, you'll probably end up with faster results if you mail mud@armageddon.org with problems like this.  I went ahead and reset your password, so you should have it in your email.  If it doesn't work, feel free to email me at morgenes@armageddon.org and cc mud so that we can make sure you get in.

Oh, and we'd prefer if people not create extra accounts when you forget your password.  We have the ability to reset your password for you.  Every account you create is a resource that is taken that slows things down for the administration of the game.

You do have to "log in" you account to use the request tool.
