[OSM-dev] Fwd: [OSM-newbies] Fallen at the First Hurdle

Could someone with access to www/db check out this account.  It sounds
as if OSM generated a bad token - so Mike has an account with active=0
and can't log into it with the confirmation email he was sent.

Cheers,

Hi Nick,

As you suspected you can;t sign up again with the same details but I
don't want to sign up with a different e-mail address, it was
carefully chosen for filtering etc.

Surely an admin can go in and remove this broken account so that I can
try again.

Mike
