I changed my email adress and made a mistake, writing .com instead of .net - account gone. Emails aren't answered.

OT: Have a similar problem with another forum, can't register since some weeks, cause I'm not getting a verification mail. To find the email of the owner is always a adventure, then there is no answer. I'm sure that I'm not banned there.

What about a youtube help section where users can submit help videos such as explaining how to make install packages for quirky and such?

I think there already is something like that, although the videos may be way out of date.

I't's probably been mentioned but I noticed that you can't put parenthesis in URLs. Allot of wikipedia pages use parenthesis in URLs. The solution is to use the URL encoding for parenthesis. However, not all users will know to do this.

If you find it could you put it in it's own section on the main forum so it's more visible as a trial to see if more people use it?

Thanks

I'm happy to see they're not active.

Here it is in the encoded form:

I can't see how that helps at all. Confused
I did find Semme's post instructive though. If I ever find the time, I'll experiment with using URL encoding in the forum.
