    We Volunteers cannot help with this issue. Will both of you please contact Staff with all your details. After you use the searchbox, under the search results, at the bottom of the page there will be a section that says “Have you found the answer to your question?” You can choose either “Yes I found the answer to my question.” or “No I didn’t find the answer to my question and I would like to contact support for help.” The no option will reveal the contact form.



    Thanks for your reply. I contacted support 19th Sep, but still no reply. Does it usually take a few days?



    I’ll flag this thread for Staff attention.

    Ownership and username details really aren’t something to discuss on the public forums.
