Again, I am having trouble getting onto the site.  The password reset is garbage.  I can't get on using that.  <mad> <mad> <mad> <mad> <mad> <mad>

Maybe I'll just create a new account.

OK, I was able to create another account.  Ticks me off that I couldn't reset my password.  Major screw up in the system.

How come everyone else can use it. Maybe instead of trashing the site you should switch browsers to something after 1985 or build your own site.

George. You successfully reset your password 3 times and then couldn't manage to type it on correctly on login:

Starting at:

12/21/2019 @ 10:26pm (UTC)

You then attempted to create a new account and failed and then finally created a new account.  You then failed to properly confirm the email address associated with the new account  twice before finally getting it right.

You currently have 3 accounts on the site with 3 different email accounts.

If you want me to fix things up so you have only one account let me know which one you want. and remember your login credentials.

That's the thing.  There's a glitch.  It says I successfully added an account.  Then it rejects the password I used.  Finally Homerwannabee2 worked.   I guess please get rid of everything except homerwannabee2 and my oldest account. Thanks for the response. :)

George the only account you've submitted scores on is 'homerwannabee' using the yahoo email without the 1. I've set that account you can login with the same passwords as homerwannabee2.

Log out of whatever account you're logged in as login as homerwannabee. If you can successfully do that I can change your Yolo registration to that account.

Glad we could get it straightened out. If you have troubles logging in again and can't get the password reset to work just let me know and I can help.

Just a few notes about nominations:

  • Please check games that are already nominated before entering your nominations - Current Game Nominations - Double ups will need to be reentered
  • If you nominate but don't register for the tournament, your nominations will be deleted. This will happen closer to the end of the nominating period
