Mods Website doesn't have a Forgotten Password option

Post by dasmotiu » Mon Nov 21, 2016 10:17 pm

I am in a deadlock with the Mods website. I registered some time ago, and responded to the email as normal. Some time elapsed before I went back to use this registration, and I had forgotten the password. I cannot re-register because my email is "already in use". On the mods website there is no "I forgot my password" option. It is not obvious to me where I should direct my problem.

Use the password reset on the main website:

I tried that and it did not work.

I used your link, and then used the link from the resulting email to change my password. I started Factorio (Steam), I am using 14.20 (Build 25315, win64, Steam). I have been using this release for about 2 weeks and it seems to be very stable indeed. I clicked on the "mods" option in the initial dialog, and it presented me with the Mods dialog. I clicked on "Install mods" and saw a user login dialog. I entered my username (dasmotiu) and my new password. I received the following:

Notice
Aurhentication error on the auth server:
Username and password don't match.

Which is exactly the same as before.
