I would like to start this off as an apology. I'm sorry I have made dupe accounts.

I have 2 accounts registered under my email (- E-Mail address (visible to registered users only) -).

One is Flat3D (lua usgn testing)
And the other is Polygon3D (complete gameplay)

I'm trying to recover my Polygon3D account, I try in the correct information but once I follow the link in my email I get this message saying the information given was not correct.

I try recover method (email to username) it returns Flat3D.
I try recover method (username to email) it returns - E-Mail address (visible to registered users only) -

Finally I try recover method (username+email to email), I get the email, but when I try to recover it says the info I typed is incorrect.

If you are reading this DC, I would like this account, as well as Flat3D closed--And only have 1 account (Polygon3D).

EDIT: I don't know the password to Polygon3D, but it wont matter, because once there is only 1 account linked to my email I can recover it.

Thanks.

How is it possible to make two accounts on the same e-mail?

Well, DC could have some trouble actually removing your account. As far as I know the user database is stored in a SQL database, which would mean he would have to remotely connect to the server via SSH and instruct the SQL engine to remove the users. Another problem arises this way because it would confuse our ID numbers. A lot. Probably the best you can give him is an apology.

Unless he has something like PHPMyAdmin installed. And there are already quite some deleted users (not actually deleted, just not activated); not all ID numbers are taken (there was a thread about that recently: http://www.unrealsoftware.de/forum_posts.php?post=216980) so confusing ID numbers isn't the biggest problem.

I'm sorry to tell you that you are the glitch.

it's absolutely impossible to create multiple accounts with the same e-mail address.

why do you ignore the rules anyway? creating 3 accounts is fucking bold.

the actual e-mail address of your account is another one than you think - but it doesn't matter because I'm banning all of your accounts. check the rules for reference.

btw: you are not allowed to create one or more new accounts. so please don't do it.

@Banaan:
Well, I do believe that our ID's are based on our place in the SQL database, so if an entry was actually removed it could effect users with IDs higher than his.

I COULD simply remove users but I'm not doing it.
