no reset password in official factorio wiki

Post by Amarula » Wed May 09, 2018 12:41 pm

I created an account on the official Factorio wiki. I didn't take any special precautions like writing down my password, as it is so easy to get passwords reset these days. Last week when I went to log in, I had forgotten my password but I couldn't reset it. I checked the wiki help, and it says there is supposed to be a button that emails a reset code to my registered email account. Sadly, the log in page for the official Factorio wiki does not have the reset password button.
Is there any way to get my password reset, or will I have to create a new account?
Thanks!

Sadly we cannot have the reset password option visible to everyone due to potential abuse. I can reset passwords though, so just give me your email or your wiki username and I will do it :)
