Locked out of my freebie WP.com blog

    I started a freebie blog in November 2008 on WordPress.com. Link is here: http://macheadcase.wordpress.com/

    Last post I made was mid-May 2010.

    I noticed about a week ago that I wasn’t logged in anymore and did not pay any attention because it had already happened a few times in the past due probably to an update in the WP installation or something.

    I tried logging in today in my account but could not. WP insisted I start my registration from scratch even when I asked for a new password to reset it. I received the new password, logged in but I log in a brand new account, with no previous posts or anything in the Dashboard.

    I tried clicking the WP support link in the Dashboard but the message said that support was closed.

    What can I do now? Or is my old account gone and closed?

    Thank you so much, raincoaster.


    I wonder if it has anything to do with Gravatar.com. My username doesn’t even show up and I can’t log in there either! Gah!



    Ok I seem to be able to log in now.

    A huge thank you to Tony of WP.com for helping me out on this one. And thank you again, raincoaster, for bringing this to the attention of WP support!
