When I log in to, I enter my username (EoinBairéad) or email address ( and password.

My username - EoinBairéad - then appears at the top of the screen on the right.

When I then click on the question section,. my username is replaced with the word login.

When I try to login in, my username appears in the box, and I type in my password. I am then told that they are incorrect.

A password reset via email does not work - I am asking this through quick link.

I've tried both Firefox and Explorer as browsers.

And I have real questions about my attempts to use OpenStreetMaps, but I can no longer put them.

I see why - at least I think I see why.

My Username in OpenStreetMaps is EoinBairéad, with an accent on the e - é. But it seems that my username in the help section is EoinBairead - no accent.

Could be the problem indeed. Also, I have noticed that you get logged of when you access from different computers. So try to log you off everywhere you can before you log on again.

Btw, I see you are having 2 different accounts here (with different points).
