I asked a question about Minecraft and hospitals, the green answered (thank you!) and a lovely mefite (who is fantastic and shall be unnamed unless he decides to be named?) hooked me up. Happily smelting ores kept me occupied and I did not end up shooting rubber bands at bedpans.
I'm now out of hospital (yay) and doing fine, but I am experiencing what doctors think is mild memory loss due to general anaesthesia. Random chunks of short-term memory close to my hospital stay are gone, and so are some older memories that my brain hasn't accessed recently. That's fine - no one's especially worried, there's no blacking out, etc, the cognitive symptoms should pass in a few months or so. But wait!
Yep - I can't remember my Minecraft password, which I set up almost right before hospital admission or the password to my gaming email. At all. Complete blank. I've tried multiple times to complete the Gmail email knowledge test, but since that email is an empty account only used to sign up for games and etc, there isn't any personalisation and not much data to be matched up. I also can't remember dates that they require - last login, etc. Passwords weren't automatically saved on my computer, either, so any recovery programs don't work. I did not write the passwords down - or at least I can't remember if I did or not, though my previous pattern is not to do so. The automated response will not allow me access. That's all right - I don't care especially about that account.
BUT MINECRAFT. Is there any way I can reach a real human being at Mojang to explain and get my account back? I've sent a support ticket in about three weeks ago with no response, and there's no way I can just reset my password because the reset email goes to the godforsaken lost Gmail account and *keysmash*.
tl;dr my brain sucks, I'm a complete idiot and lost access to both Minecraft account and email associated to that account. Is there any way past the automated Mojang support system so I can just enchant some goddamn pickaxes already?
