Why is my username currently inactive?

I login fairly frequently. Today got this message:
The specified username is currently inactive. If you have problems activating your account, please contact a board administrator.

Is it really inactive, or is the board having issues? I've also never spammed the forum or had a warning. What's up?

How do you contact an administrator (& transmit private info securely about an acct), w/o being able to login? If I click on Administrators link at page bottom, it takes me to login screen...

Thanks.

What username?
"Deactivated1976" returns as not on this board.
Might be the forum playing again.

phkhgh is the registered name.

You do know that you can't login w/ a guest name that is a registered user name?

Your username was not deactivated but I re-activated it.
Try logging in again.

It said it was deactivated (on several tries - spaced out). But you re activating it seems to have fixed it. Thanks.

This forum software has more bugs than a rotting log.:)

Nope. Not a bug but our resident "Green Gremlin."

& You're welcome.

Actually it may not be the forums fault but due to you changing your email address on March 8 and then not clicking on activation link in email sent to new email address.

No such user exists in the database, I even searched for *732*. If it did exist you would not be able to use it as a guess username.
What is the email address registered with? Write it like this name AT example Dot com

I do not have a working crystal ball on hand at moment so perhaps you could give us the username to look at?.

If Maurosuarez7 was indeed a registered username on forums.mozillazine.org then you would not be able to use it while as a Guest poster. Also the Maurosuarez7 name does not exist in user search regardless whether username is activated or not.

Either you did not register with that exact spelling of username here or you perhaps registered with this name on a mozilla.org site instead.

Hi!
I registered in the message board yesterday, but so far have not received the activation message for the username (zeroleft), despite several requests for re-sending.
Am I doing something wrong?
