Yay!! It's the first time I actually recover a lost account XD Thank you!! The pinning idea was not mine, credit goes to Noimporta
in another password-recovering thread.
Edit: Although I don't know how helpful it's gonna be to put this info here, here is what I collected from other such threads.
Say you are currently logged in and, for whatever reason, you need your password and can't quite remember it. You have several options, just make sure the cookies are still in the oven (they're kept there for like 9 months in you don't touch them... I wonder what happens next):
pointed out you can put
into the address bar of your browser (assuming the current tab is on this site) and a system message will pop up telling you the contents of your handle's cookie.
Which is, of course, as Tangent128
said, the same as looking for the cookie yourself, like by (in Firefox) clicking Tools -> Options -> Privacy -> Show cookies.
also pointed out your password is -shown- (see note) at the password changer
. (Note: It's supposed to be white letters on white background -hence the "highlight to read" message- but, if you (like me) chose not to have a white background to protect your eyes... Sadly, at least for me, it also appears repeated (full black on white) at the "New pass" field).
Also, I think this post
is worth reading, it might be a Crowning Moment of Funny
for some (Duh, I wonder if the link will be rendered useless once there are enough posts to occupy several pages? I saw no "permanent link" feature like in the YKTTW
