    Hi,

    I just don't know what to do. I know that sounds silly, but I can' reset my password for gbatemp.
    I first logged in with Facebook, but I don't want that anymore. I disassociated my facebook account and then wanted to change my internal account password. This needs the internal password I used before, but I don't think I ever set one up.
    Then I wanted to reset it, and let a password reset request sent to my email address I used. But there isn't something in my normal or spam folder from GBATemp.
    So I can't change or reset my password here. And since I disassociated my facebook, I can't relogin.

    Could someone help silly me, to solve this problem?

    my dad works for nintendo.
    check on http://gbatemp.net/account/contact-details
    what email address registered is (my current email shows up in my account, but i am not sure if it's just my browser filling the details automatically)
    if that area has your email address (and not facebook address) then you should receive the email, as you checked in the spam folder, i will suggest to wait a few moments (like an hour) because i remember once reseting my password and the email didn't arrive until some minutes after...

    anyway, next time something like this happens i recommend posting under http://gbatemp.net/forums/site-discussions-suggestions.3/ the staff keeps more eyes on that section than off topic..
    either way i will write here the staff names so they receive a notification and can give a look in here.

    heres the staff list in case you want to Private message someone https://gbatemp.net/staff/ (even the moderators will be able to assist you, but i think this kind of thing requires a supervisor if not an admin)

    Thank you very much. I use the same email everywhere and in my contact details the email is therefore the same too. Maybe I didn't set a password for the internal acc in the first place?
