Last April 22, 2011, Silkroad Online announced that the Email Verification System will be strictly implemented.
Most of the players didn’t pay attention to this message. But Joymax was very serious of this.
In my opinion, Joymax wanted to stop the selling and buying of accounts.
Then when the next inspection was done, everyone was shocked. Most of the unverified sold accounts were hacked by its original owners. A lot of players were asking for a roll back but Joymax ignored it all. They were strict in implementing their rules now.
Let’s see how the unverified sold accounts got hacked.
In the site front page, click “Forgot Your ID OR Password”
It will open the page “Find ID/ Find Password”
In this page, you can recover your user id if you forgot it.
And you can reset your forgotten password here too.
Now let’s see how did the unverified account got hacked.
First is to type the security code shown above the page.
Then type the unverified User ID. In my example, I used my account which isn’t verified. I type the it inside the User ID then I clicked “ID Check”.
And because it wasn’t verified, another box pop up under it asking for the secret answer. If you know the secret answer of the said ID, you can change the password and hack it right away. Most players who bought accounts and didn’t verified it got hacked in this way. If they verified their account, this won’t ever happen.
If the account is verified, a box asking for the email address will pop up instead of the secret answer box. It won’t show the account’s email but it will let you type the email you used in verifying the account. Even if everyone knows your User ID, no one can hack you as long as your email is safe. Email Verification is helpful in fighting hackers.
How can you verify an old account?
That will easy. First is to go to the site.
Then, type your User Id and Password. If you are verified, your account can surf inside the site but if it’s not, it will direct you to another window.
You will be directed to Joymax front page. If you have an existing old account and you wanted to verify it, click “Email Verification Service”.
A page asking for you ID and Password will be shown. You have to type your information before you can proceed to the next step.
Then a profile page will be shown asking for a nickname that you want to use whenever you will surf the site and forum. Type a nickname you desire and click confirm.
Then the Verify Account Page will appear. In here, you can change the email you want to verify on the account. Type the new email and the account password. Then enter the security code. Click Submit.
Then go to your email and check the message that Joymax sent you. It contains a link that you need to click. After you click the link, it will direct you to Joymax site and congratulating you on the successful email verification. Remember that you need to go to your email and click the link to verify your account. Sometimes, the email can be seen in your junk folder.
Well, I had been super busy these past few weeks -.- Thank you guys for always viewing my post and don’t forget to verify your old accounts.. It is for your best (n.n)
