  1. We don’t have a separate code for that. Oral covers it, though.
  2. Hi, Guest kaif. It would help if you could give me your pen name, or the url to your profile so I can take a look.
  3. Give me a day or two, and I hope to have some sort of answer for you.
  4. Can you log in with your original password? I can email what we have on record for you, if that helps. I don’t want to post it here on a public forum.
  5. Look in the menu bar at the top of the archive. If it says Log in, try it and see if it will let you in with the password you just set. I recall, back when we first changed the code enough to require us all to re-validate, there was a glitch which said we weren’t successful at reactivating, but we actually were. We just had to log out, and then in again. (And this is why non-coders like me resort so frequently to wine… )
  6. I’ll see if I can’t get some insight from our tech admin. I’m as baffled as anyone, since this seems to be a relatively recent occurrence to have so many passwords fail and be unable to be reset.
  7. The under 8 letters/numbers is going to be a problem when you reset, just as a heads up. I’m not sure how you were able to log in with it at all, frankly, since I had to reset mine back in 2012 when the requirement for a minimum of 8 letters/numbers was put in place. But again, I’m not a coder, so I can’t speak as to the mysterious ways of the archive code. Are you using the Password Reset link from the profile menu? I’ve not actually used that one, but I do share a direct link from the FAQ menu which has worked in the past for other members: We recently changed things around in the archive to accommodate mobile device users, and the left side menus were disabled all over, except in a few limited areas, like profiles. I’m not sure if there’s any error in that bit of coding as a result of the changes.
  8. Hi, I’m not sure what’s up with passwords lately, but… just to ask the obvious, did you try resetting with the same password? That will blank the field and force another reset, which is not good if there’s already a problem. Also, did you use any special characters? Only numbers and/or letters are allowed, and the letters are case sensitive. We also discovered (the hard way) that passwords must be at least 8 letters/numbers long, but can’t be longer than 12 letters/numbers. Hopefully, DemonGoddess061 will have a few minutes to let me know what we can do to fix this. She’s been working egregious overtime lately,.so please be patient with us. She’s the database person, whereas I just know basic troubleshooting.
  9. This, exactly.
  10. It’s very unforgiving about date formats. I tend to use the slash automatically myself, and I’m pretty sure I remember getting that wrong myself when I revalidated.
  11. The format is extremely specific. It must be yyyy-mm-dd. That means, for a birthdate of August 7, 1992, you would input 1992-08-07.
  12. When you click on the author’s name, you’ll be taken to their profile. At the very top, in the url, there is a number at the end. That’s the author’s ID. The FAQ on that is here.
  13. I can so relate to this. I have so many things floating around in my head, but when I try to pin them down, they’re gone, or else the words are awkward, and don’t fit right. I know what I want to say—it’s right there, on the tip of my tongue—but then I try to define it, and the whole mess falls apart in my hands. I’ve decided it will be written when it wants to be written, and I can’t force it, whatever it turns out to be.
  14. I’m glad it was a relatively simple fix for you, and I think we all want an easy way to fix youthful writing.
  15. I *think* I see the issue. There were a couple of stories in Naruto which had the first chapter cut off, and they all had a note at the end of the summary: “Feedback: Constructive please (or glowing if you like) >. “ I’m going to guess this was a text emoticon, but the next symbol, “<” was misread by the archive software and the rest of the text was not displayed. Try editing that out, and see if the rest of the chapter reappears.
