Hi is there any way to reset the pin on accounts. Its been a long time since i set up the account and i cant for the life of me remember what it it is. I have pmed cygnus directly a few days ago without reply and seen the couple of other responces on the forum so now posting it here.
Would there be any way to implement a way to reset the pin on accounts if users wish to do so.
I really should of written it down or saved it somewhere so it is kind of my own fault.

no sent 2 pms and no reply at all ive now completely stopped folding for the time being until i can get more of this resolved. I have read some older posts saying it would not be possible to retreve pins but there should be an easy way for users to be able to reset there pins either buy supplying there account information or adding something that allows resets as it seems im not the only one that forgotten pins over time so maybe this can be looked into. As i stated in the first place its my fault i didn't write the pin down in the 1st place haha but writing it down does seem to negate the security problem in the 1st place haha as i would only use the pin for this and nothing else since its greater than 4 digits.

What does Folding have to do with your PIN? You can still Fold while you're resolving the account issue. If you can't resolve it, you may have to just open another account...

At the bare minimum, at least use the FINISH feature in the F@H client to finish any Work Units currently in work.

This will be entered as an enhancement request for V1.3. I'll put in a task to reset the PIN for Cygnus, but keep in mind he wont be available until Monday. How many coins do you currently have in the pool that have not been paid out?

per jrweiss' recommendation, please try to keep your [email protected] account in good standing and "finish" any running jobs before stopping folding.
