At your leisure, please go to the dungeon Room 202 to see the reward mops and hammers you can work towards having! Christopher (talk) 16:54, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

Someone claiming to be you[edit]

A BoN claiming to be you has just posted this, I don't think it's you but could you confirm either way? 15:06, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

Since the issue is my login credentials, it's difficult to confirm beyond a doubt, since my real name and details aren't in here, with the exception of those on my User Page. If I were to provide such information to you, a photo and a name, would that suffice? I want to get you what you need. (talk) 15:15, 25 August 2017 (UTC)
No need for that, see my talk. Christopher (talk) 15:18, 25 August 2017 (UTC)
And now I know what to do in the future of the same thing happens to me or someone else. Semipenultimate (talk) 15:37, 25 August 2017 (UTC)
What exactly was the problem with the password reset email? It may need to be mentioned at tech support. Christopher (talk) 15:44, 25 August 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, that's the weird one. The reset email didn't appear to go to my registered address at all - not in the spam folder, regular folder, nowhere. And yet when you posted on my talk page, I got the email ping, so the account was still correctly recorded on RW. Resetting my PW back in July there wasn't a problem, either.

Posted to tech support in all it's vague, poorly-documented glory. Semipenultimate (talk) 16:24, 25 August 2017 (UTC)
Out of interest, do you now know my email address (or at least the one I use for RW)? It says in preferences that "your email address is not revealed when someone contacts you" but it doesn't say anything about when you contact someone. Christopher (talk) 09:54, 28 August 2017 (UTC)

Your dad[edit]

I just stumbled over your beautiful explanation of how you feel far more connected to your dad after he passed out of this world, than when he was in it with us. You sound like a forgiving kind of person. That is a tremendous asset. By your obvious forgiveness of your dad, you can actually draw the true goodness of the man nearer, and learn to eventually forgive and then forget the mistakes, even if they were many and sometimes seemingly overly harsh. I am very fortunate as my relationship with my own dad was once quite strained and even silent for years, but we were later able to repair it a few years ago, and we're now good friends. I'm in my 60's and he's in his 80's. Personally, I believe that it's always "better late than never," especially in the forgiveness department. Perhaps try some day on some mountain top just closing your eyes and allowing the love that your dad had for you, but obviously had little idea how to communicate, to be communicated to you now. It is there, and your forgiveness will continue to light the way for its connection to you and with you. Scottperry (talk) 05:38, 16 August 2019 (UTC) (please feel free to delete this if you want.)
