Log-in Problem

Original post made by Norm, Midtown, on Apr 26, 2013

Can anyone explain why when I try to log-in on PA Online I get "Your Username or Email Address was not found in the system", then when I try to just the link to check my password, it says "Your Username or Email Address was not found in the system, so I try to register again, and the system, which sent the Online via E-mail, tells me "That Email Address is already being used, if you have forgotten your password, use this link to have it e-mailed to you."

I have been assured(?) by the Online editor that I am in the system. I get the E-mail notices, but I only exist in the ether I guessÂ….
