Reset password for bot TheklanBot
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Hello,
According to https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Password_reset it is possible to restore a password. Well, my bot (TheklanBot: https://eu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lankide:TheklanBot) has a long contribution history at Wikimedia projects, but I changed the password a time ago and now I have lost it. I have been trying with all the possibilities I could imagine but maybe I had a typo when I changed it. I can create another bot but I would like to have this one working.

I have my personal account with my e-mail, but the bot account lacks an e-mail, as it is a bot, so I can't restore it directly.

Could I have a password reset, please?

Thanks

Galder (Theklan)

Done. Thanks to https://eu.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Lankide:TheklanBot&oldid=74661 and https://eu.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Lankide:TheklanBot&diff=183351&oldid=74661, as well as thanks to @Amire80's vouch for @Theklan, I'm convinced those accounts belong both to the same user, and as such, I've set TheklanBot's email to the same email address that's assigned to @Theklan's personal account. Please reopen if you still can't access your account.
