Problem with github


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

so I wanted to register on github to create bug reports etc.I thought it would be easy to create a simple account and using any temporary mail address but anyhow it wasn't working well so right after the registration I was flagged as Spam.I did verify the Email but I still was flagged.Today I tried to login on github and was redirected to this...

https://github.com/sessions/verified-device

...to enter a 6 digit code.I tried to enter the first one I got on registration but this one failed but I could press the re-send button to get a new code BUT they still sending it to the temp mail address (no access anymore / gone of course) and I can not change the Email address anymore on that URL above and I also come not into my account. :( This really sucks again!So what can I do now?Should I forget that account now and create a new one with any valid Email?I really hate that Email / Device checkings.I just wanna send a bug report and don't wanna get a own page on github etc you know.On sourceforge its much better so there you don't need to register or anything to send any report.Anyway, just wanna ask whether I have a chance to get my account valid anyhow or not.

PS: Do you know any simple / save / free Email service I can use for that what github will accept without to get flagged right after registering?Thank you.

That old account is gone unless you can retrieve the temp email that you signed it up with. You are better off creating a new one. They will keep sending you 2fa. So you need to sign up with any email address that that you can maintain access to.

P.S: Nearly any email provider works. Only thing you need to remember is that you need to maintain access to it. They will keep sending your 2FA with that 6 digit code and without it you will lose your account.

One way to retrieve old account is to contact someone at Github BUT they will ask you for your real life ID and other details to make sure that the lost account actually belongs to you. I understand that that you do not want to do that. So the best bet is to forget that account and create a new one.
