I am trying to go into my account in flicker but I can't remember my login email address. I know my user id and password but the site is very unhelpful. Any ideas would be most wecome. Thanks in advance.

Yes I have and it was as useless as a sick headache.

Flickr is a Yahoo-owned site. Try your Yahoo email address. If you are a BT Internet customer, you might be able to acces it with your btinternet.com address.

I have copied below the two links flickr takes you to for forgotten passwords.

YAHOO ACCOUNTS -
https://edit.yahoo.com/forgotroot?done=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.yahoo.com&src=&partner=r...

GOOGLE ACCOUNTS
https://www.google.com/accounts/recovery

Hope this helps you get back in!

Just retried both these and are of no use whatsoever.

ah - probably a problem, you can set up another account and then find yourself and merge the two. Have you e-mailed anyone from that account?

I have 2 flickr accounts... The first one I had I had to abandon for the same reasons as the OP... My newer one I access via Facebook...

Surely it can't be that difficult to recover your Yahoo login... Unless you were daft enough to sign up without an alternative email, or make a note of the password somewhere?

I try to stay logged in to flickr all the time. If I ever get logged out, it takes numerous attempts with the correct username and password to get back in. The annoying thing is the log in screen says "Hello Alan " or something like that. So it knows its me

It can't ever seem to remember you are an English speaker though, can it? Hakuna matata, Alan!
