    Ruh roh, what have I done?

    (you need an account to see links)

    I went to log into an account and they locked it for having too many login attempts, despite me trying only twice. The account is not labelled as frozen when you look at it from the outside. That being said, it must have been either locked a long time ago or locked during transition. What on Earth did I do, and what can I do? :0

    It will unlock after about an hr times(?)


    just leave it until it's unlocked, should be fine as long as you are not actually frozen.

    If other people have tried to log into it (especially applies to RW/RN accounts/pets and UCs), that will happen. There's no way to bypass it if that's the case and the account's gone, lol. It happens when too many other people try to log in with a bad PW.
    If it's your own account, I'm not sure about that one haha
    i love luna

    if you have the email, you can TRY sending in a ticket. dunno how effective it is, but if a lot of people tried to login besides you like Aura said then yeah.. you're pretty screwed sorry

    Submit a ticket.


    It's everyone trying passwords on accounts.


    If its not inactive, the password will most likely not work since they fixed the glitch, so people should stop ruining it for everyone else.

    If its inactive, test the password, its probably bad too. But there are a lot that aren't


    Almost to the point now if things keep getting taken i'll just mass freeze everything that's taken. It's annoying.

    I get this all the time with unregs. Too often newbies will endlessly try to brute force (at least I assume that's what happens) so when I try to log in for the first time, even with the correct pw, the account locks. Unfortunately nothing can be done short of submitting a ticket.
