GUIDE:How to change your password

Post by Shaymin on Tue 22 Nov 2011 - 22:26

This is a guide on how to change your password without using the 'I forgot my password' button, because that doesn't seem to work.
I know this method works, because I've used it myself.
My guide only works if you have a cookie to remember your password when you first try and log in, so when you first register, it would be a good idea to do that. (The way you can tell if it's done that or not is if it comes up with your username and password when you start typing your username in)

So, now a couple of days/weeks/months/years/millenia have gone by, and you've forgotten your password. Here's what to do:

Step 1:

This is what it should look like if you've copied the steps above and try to log in. Now you could just log in now, but you want a password you can remember, don't you?

Step 2:

Enter your registered email address in the place where your username is.

Step 3:

The top image is what it should come up with (Every computer I've been on has some form of this message). Click 'Remember my password'.
It will come up with an error message saying that the login didn't work, but that's okay.
Next log in.

Step 4:

Got to 'Profile'. Now your password (which is compulsory to put in when you're changing it) should have come up in the box I drew the blue thingy around. And voila! You can change your password!
Hope you enjoyed my guide!
I'm now going to change my password so you can't have any help if you ever try to guess it by what length it is.
