Hello, your title (Help!!!!!!) is not specific and therefore does not facilitate research via the search option. I am not answering (nor is any other member) until you change your title to a more specific title related to your problem.

We ask you to use explicit titles because:
The forum's search engine bases its research on keywords found in topic titles.

When you do a research, do you use "help", "urgent", "problem", "SOS" or "question" as keywords to look for topics about your problem/question?

Certainly not! So this is why it is important to use titles related to your problem/question. Doing this makes the researches much easier for visitors who use the search engine to get an answer to their question.

Thanks for your understanding.

Cordially

Are you the owner of the forum? Did you create two different accounts?

hi , yes i am the owner of the site and originally open the site as admin....i then opened an account as myself with a different email address so i could be just an ordinary member who could talk to others without them feeling admin was watching what they were doing all the time and to creat a friendlier site....all members know i am admin anyway.

If you are scared anyways, just change your admin password.
