I had a username/account created by a friend who runs a website from here. I am one of the admins from the site, etc. etc.
Well, the problem is that I can no longer sign into wordpress.com as myself. I was able to sign in twice and everything was fine, but the third time, I was informed that my password was incorrect; however, I was 100% sure it was correct. I tried my personal password, a variation of it for good measure, then the third time I tried the original password given to me just to see if it had been reset. All three were incorrect. After the third time, I was informed that my username was now incorrect, yet it was the same one I was assigned originally. I've exhausted all possibilities with trying to rectify this problem.
Since, no matter what I do, I am told my username is now incorrect, I believe wordpress.com might have listed me as a "bot" and blacklisted my IP address. Further evidence of this is that I can't sign in on the other computer in my house. I'm going to try logging in on my Wii with the Internet Channel, but I doubt if that works... and I don't want that to be the only way to sign back in to wordpress.com if it does happen to work.
However, I was able to make my own account with no problems, so wouldn't that rule out an IP address problem? But, at the same time, the person who created the account for me can log in as me, and the other admins at the website can log in as me with no problems... so that *does* point to an IP address problem, correct?
Any suggestions with fixing this?
-Having the person that created my account reset my password
-Having the person that created my account abolish it and make me a completely new account (tried twice with variations of my original username)
-Making a completely new account myself and linking the accounts together (having an admin make you an author for a site)
-Cleared my cache/etc. before trying to login after doing everything listed above
Help would be immensely appreciated.
