There is a time i forgot my Tumblr email address, well, this is the email i could use to Login into Tumblr. It is the Email i had used to Register at Tumblr and forgetting it meant that i could no longer log in into my blog. Good enough, i manged to recover the email through Tumble support
If you also have the same problem, the first step you should take is to write to Tumblr support at email@example.com.
This the email i sent to them
“Hi, I really need your help
I forgot the email I used to register my blog
My blog address http://xxxxxxxxxxx.tumblr.com/
Please help me because I can not sign in into my blog
Thank you so much”
I received an email from Tumbr support which read like this
“Hi Andrew. The email address you used is an @yahoo.com email address. If that doesn’t help, We need to gather some information to prove that you are the owner of this account.
* What public IP address were you using when you created the account?
However, i had a big problem with that, because the computer i had used to register my tumblr account was a public computer and i did not know its IP address. So i sent them another message to them which read like this
“Hi Thank you for the reply
It is long since I last sing in to the blog and I was using a public computer
Isnt there any other way you can help, like telling me the first 2 letters of that username, I know I will be able to figure out the rest
I received another email from Tumblr support where they where telling to send my picture to them so that they can see if it corresponds with the picture on my blog. this is how it read.
“We need to gather further information to prove that you are the owner of this account.
* Is there a photo of you on the blog? If so, please give us a specific blog post permalink web address where your photo has been used. Your avatar/portrait photo may also be able to serve this purpose if you don’t have any posts that contain your photo.
Post permalinks are permanent links (URLs) to individual posts and can be found by clicking the upper right corners of posts on the Dashboard or on a Tumblr search page. They are also on public blog pages, but the location varies by blog theme. Often they are linked to a date, a time, a comments link, or a symbol.
An example of a post permalink is:
Please list each post permalink on a new line in your email response. Putting each permalink on its own line will allow us to more quickly look into your request.
Next, please take one of the follow steps:
* Take a photo of yourself holding a piece of paper that says “Tumblr, this is me”. Then, send the photo in a reply to this email message along with the post permalink requested above. We will not be able to use a photo where your face is obscured or hard to see.
* If you would prefer, send us a scan/photo of a government-issued picture ID. You can obscure your contact information, birthday, and ID number from the scan/photo if you wish. We just need to see your name and your photo on a government-issued picture ID. Send the scan/photo in a reply to this email message along with the post permalink requested above.
But i also had a problem with that too, this is because my blog did not have a photo or portrait on it. So i could not convince them with my photo, so sent them another message which read like this
“I have no personal items pictured on blog
There is no photo of me on the blog
I have used many yahoo mails before, but many of them have the my names”
When it reached that point, Tumblr staff finally gave me a hing to the email i had used. This was the messeage i got
The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Does that remind you which one it might be?
That was enough, i then remembered the email i had used to register for my Tumblr account after that small hint.
I have heard so many people saying that I forgot my tumblr email, or i forgot the email i used to register my tumblr account. i hope this information will help you
