Could you please PM your onsitename/onsitemail to me, for further investigation?

Thanks!

There is simply no user named "Chaosdreamer" on root-me. If you use "chaosdreamer2" as onsitename (case sensitive) it seems to work.

Maybe there is confusion about how the linking works, and here is a brief explaination.

You have to enter your onsitename and onsitemail for a site, which are the credentials you use on root-me (or any other site being linked)
wechall then asks the site if this combination exists on the site.
This way your nicknames can differ across the sites you play.
If the onsitemail differs from your wechallmail, a confirmation is sent, so you cannot link other people accounts.

Privacy note:
The onsitemails are never saved to the database, however they currently occur in the logfiles.
Logfiles are removed from the server once in a week, but still i think onsitemails should not be recorded anywhere (todo)
The onsitenames, of course, have to be stored in the "RegAt" table, so we know which username has to be sent when you update your scores on a site.

Happy Challenging!

EDIT:
The account "Chaosdreamer" was just not activated. It was possible to link unactivated accounts, which has been fixed on root-me (thx g0uz)

The linking process was not working for the past 1 or 2 weeks, due to bigger changes in the Root Me codebase.
Thanks to g0uz, all problems should have been sorted out again.
Also thanks to Keegzer for reporting the problem.

@Keegzer: You have to user your Root Me login for linking, ????s in your case, and not your Root Me displayname ???????s

I'm sorry but I tried to link my account on Root-me, where my nickname is "GuiRaimbault" and my email address the same as the one I use here but this operation fails everytime.

Could someone provide assistance, please ?

Thanks Smile

If you have an error when trying to update your scores after not being on for a while, try unlinking/relinking your account. Fixed it for me!

EDIT: Whoops, don't do this! Read below.

Not sure if you are replying to the post before yours, but that one is a bit old.

In any case, you shouldn't have to relink your account ever. That is, unless your username changed on the linked site.

Edit: If it was a long time ago, since the last update, it might be because we've become stricter in not allowing case-insensitive checks. So if you previously linked your account by using different capitalisation, then I guess relinking could solve that.

Wasn't a reply, thought it an error exclusive to this site, my bad.

It must have been the capitalization as you said, I relinked with lowercase and that seemed to work.
