Mysterious Last Name Change and Two Different Last Names Linked to Same E-mail Address At Permies

How did this happen, how to rectify.

I originally started a permies account some years ago linked to louisglaframboise@gmail.com with my first name being Louis and my last name being Laframboise. Recently I have found my last name listed as Laframboise II and I had somehow been switched to this new account even thoug both names are linked to the same above e-mail and I have no way of getting back to my original profile/access. Any suggestions or illumination would help.

Louis

Ah ha!  A puzzle.

It looks like the original account is https://permies.com/u/150343/Louis-Laframboise

however, that has a very different email address and the email hoast said that that email wasn't working anymore.  

At this stage, I need some way to confirm that you are you and not a friend having a practical joke at your expense.

How would we go about verifying my self? My Louis Laframboise permies account used to be used to be linked to esiobmarfal@gmail.com which I was locked out of by Google and so had to change it.

Frustrating this legitimizing of self over the internet.

I agree it's really frustrating.

But having your account taken over by a joker who says terrible things in your name or worse is even more frustrating.

So is there any recourse to getting my old Louis Laframboise account back and linked to my new e-mail louisglaframboise@gmail.com?

I don't know.  I've asked some people who might know and we'll find out.

Did you try logging into your old account with your old email address as the user name?

If that works, you should be able to change your email address from there. We might need to close the newer account--or change it's email address to something different--so you can use the email address on your new account.

To prevent spam, our system only allows for one account per email address. I'm not quite certain why it won't allow for two names that are the same, as I'm sure there's lots of John Smiths and Maria Martinez in the world. It's probably because the real-sounding-name is also the user name, and the system won't allow two accounts with the same user name? I don't quite understand this stuff--I'm just a volunteer, not a programmer.

We've thought of some way that could pretty reliably show that you're you. PM us the answer to one or more of these questions:

(1) What was your old user name? (not real sounding name, but user name)

(2) Did you ever receive a PM on your old account? If so, can you remember anything about it, like what it was about or who it was from?

Nicole,

Thank you for your help.

Can you close the Louis Laframboise II account as this has my real, actual e-mail address which I will then hopefully be able to pair with my original account (without the II in the name and my past work)
Maybe also copy the reply to the Laframboise account as I may not be able to retreive the info.

Louis

I, too, have had extreme difficulties resulting from Google.com arbitrarily locking me out of my accounts. I have had to start all over again with at least three accounts! Good luck fixing things, since Google.com has abysmal customer relations, IMO. I'm sorry if my frustrations offend anyone. My comments here are mild compared to how I REALLY feel!
