    OK, so I had an account previously that has now lapsed, but I have forgotten my password AND I am unable to receive email sent to the address recorded for me.

    To apply for this account to be reinstated I cannot reset my password because I have a new email address as well.

    Is it possible to identify my account and arrange for the password to be reset?

    I would like to start editing again.

    My Editor USERNAME is: yogamat and I was editor here:-

    Whilst we usually welcome returning ex editors, we are insistent that they come back under their original identities. That you've forgotten some of your login details or you no longer have access to your original email account are merely stumbling blocks, not show stoppers.

    Please contact me via http://www.dmoz.org/public/sendemail?editor=jimnoble (Don't use any other method) with as much corroborative information as you can such as:-

    Approximate date joined
    Editor name (but not password)
    Real Name
    Original email address
    Joining category
    Additional categories gained
    Roughly how many edits done
    Approximate date of leaving and the circumstances

    Convince me that you are who you say you are and I can reset your email address of record to one that works today. This will make it possible for you to request a password reminder and complete a reinstatement request form.
