Account recovery for Kolyma
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I lost the password of my original account (Kolyma) about half a year ago. That account originally used a Yahoo email address when registering. Because I have changed my mobile phone and lost the Yahoo credential, I also lost the access to the recovery email and cannot reset the password.

During this time, I have been editing under Kolyma2. I have explained the relationship of the two accounts on the user pages. I believe that from the editing behavior, it is easy to confirm that the two accounts are the same person.

Jasonzhuocn, an admin on Chinese Wikipedia, can prove my identity.

I hope I can restore my original Kolyma account and replace the recovery email on file with Kolyma2’s Gmail address.

Please help me!

Yes, Kolyma2 = Kolyma. He lost his password and told me about that in last May. He did not know how to recover or reset password, so he create Kolyma2 in last July.

I told Kolyma come here to do this, and I will meet him in the next few days.
