Re: Re: Re: A long lost Old account...?
The offsite email is used as the primary security verification, so no.

You could use the forgotten password utility as directed and then check all your email accounts, including their spam folders.

If that doesn't work --

While the site retains the right to delete accounts for inactivity, in current practice it usually doesn't. No, the site won't delete it just on your claim to be the owner -- you'd have to prove you were the account owner, which has the same requirements as for regaining access to the account.

If you don't have access to the email address that is listed as the offsite email, then to verify your identity, you would need to fax a copy of an ID that links your first and last name on the account with the name on the ID that is faxed. The fax should include: The username of the account, a request to change the password and what the password should be changed to, and since it's a duplicate accounts situation, a note that this is an old account you're trying to close. The fax number is in Contact Writing.Com from Writing.Com 101 .

Hope that helps.
