    I'm back! I'm a recovered flashoholic. I was using a stock Moto X 2013 for the last couple years and I managed to avoid unlocking and rooting altogether. Now I've moved on to the Moto X Pure (2015) and I return to my favorite forums, AndroidForums! Only, I don't recognize the place, the site looks completely different. I couldn't even log in. I tried both of my email addresses and it says that I do not have an account.

    Is this still the same Android Forums as before? I used the wayback machine to confirm this was my 2nd home from back in the day but I see no evidence of my old account. I'm very confused.

    Thank you! I see you've been a member for a long time. Do you know anything about inactive accounts being deleted? I can't even find my old posts :(

    WELCOME BACK Seishin Zero !

    Perhaps the powers that be may be able to get you back into your old account,IDK.
    A look here &/or dropping a line to @Phases will answer many questions:
    http://androidforums.com/forums/suggestion-box-feedback.11/

    Yeah,the site has changed,but,it's still the same friendly place it's always been.

    Wait, no scratch that!! I was finally able to get in!! Now I'm really back :D

    New Question: Can I merge accounts? I want my new name but my old posts associated :/

    OR... is there a way to change my name? Seishin Zero is AnotherFatalEpic. We are one.

    Are you using the same name? Now that you logged in, you can search for members by name, and see if your screen name comes up... Most forums don't delete accounts (unless asked....)

    I was able to find my old account and log in finally. But I want my new name now Lol. Is changing names a thing because I can't find the option to do it?

    Gah! Sorry guys, my cookies are all screwed up, I logged out and logged into my old account but somehow this post came out of the new one. Very confusing I know...

    Now it's really confusing, I linked my email to the OLD account and get notification emails for the OLD AnotherFatalEpic account, but when I log in with the Google email it takes me to my new account. I feel like I'm having an identity crisis.

    shoot me a pm (conversation) and let me know the usernames / emails of both accounts. I'll merge them together then we can deal with the google login :)
