Multiple forum accounts

When I log in from my new phone, the forums site automatically assigns me a new forums profile.

Logging out and back in doesn’t afford me any opportunity to specify who I am for the forums.

Mind you, using the forums with a phone is painful so it could be a blessing but nonetheless, I would like to be able to access my actual account from any device.

Suggestions anyone?

How would I know? I’m just as in the dark as I am!

How do we know you are you me?

Just a Galaxy J5pro. No weird mods. Android obviously and using chrome.

More bizarre. I’m on Chrome on my Galaxy S7… Maybe @anoek has some sneaky back end insights?

As far as I’m aware forum always gets its auth from ogs login. Have you double checked you’re logged in as vanilla kosh on your phone on main site ogs?

Definitely. I’ve made a few moves! Very carefully with submit button.

[edit] “vanilla”: 1.
having no special or extra features; ordinary or standard. hurumph. :wink:

Yeah learnt that the hard way :smiley: umm, logged out and cleared cookies I assume?

On the phone? No. Let me see if I can figure how. Naturally checking out OGS was one of the first things I did with my new first ever phone so the cookie jar should have been empty anyway.

Hmm weird. There is an ogs account called kosh1 but it hasn’t been logged in since 2016

Managed to clear cookies. Logged out and back in but annoyingly, I’m still here. :wink:

This isn’t urgent but it would be nice to resolve. One Kosh is more than enough.

Well I wouldn’t go that far :wink: @anoek should be awake in about an hour hopefully he can shed a little light on it all.


No rush. Thanks for the help BHydden.

For the record: Similar situation here: [Forum] Question About My Username though in my case it is definitely related to the use of two devices. What’s your current situation @mulsiphix & @Mulsiphix1?

I dont believe you and Kosh1 are the same, if so, you would have like all your posts with the other account immediately :wink:

ive used the forum on my phone from the start and never had any trouble, also chrome on android, but ive also never had a second account on ogs… hmm?


I love the irony that you were the first to comment on that thread too.

Sleeping on it. What’s the first sign of madness again?

Wouldn’t that be a kind of forums airbagging?

Once again demonstrating the prescient nature of my species. Goodnight all.


OGS turning kafkaesque: you suddenly having split personalities … @Eugene suddenly turning purple :open_mouth:

I’ve talked to Eugene and AdamR about it and neither have any idea what to do or why this happened. Mine is definitely not related to multiple devices. Mine is likely the result of my early account creation activity.

  1. I joined OGS and created an Mulsiphix account. I may have visited the forum, I honestly cannot remember. I do know that I did not post any content.

  2. I was losing a lot and somebody messed with the stones as I was hitting OK during the scoring phase. I lost that match when I should have won. This frustrated me and I decided to create a new account, for a fresh start. I had only played 10 to 15 matches up to that point.

  3. I changed the name of the account and the email address associated with it.

  4. I created a new account named Mulsiphix and began posting on the forum. A month or so later I noticed my forum account was named Mulsiphix1.

  5. I theorize this series of events created the Mulsiphix1 account, but have no idea. To this day, it is the only account that comes up when I login to the forum. And I am positive I am not logged into the forums on any other device than this single PC.
