Here the question you perhaps are a bit tired of just answering.

But at least RAC, for Recent Acquired Credit, if not getting that wrong as well, but if forgetting the password, no such thing as an Account Key anymore.

Recent Accomplished Credit, perhaps even better.

Checking, and it could also be that of Cross-project Identifier as well, which perhaps could be used as well, but still for not any purpose of logging in either.

Should I perhaps forget both these, for only that of an e-mail address instead, when perhaps also a secure link in the meantime,
for only that of changing the password.

RAC stands for Recent Average Credit, and is a long tail weighted rolling average.

On top of that, you can still log in with your account key. Just put it where it asks for the email address at

I still have the 9-digit password from an old (and I do mean old) account that I was hoping to revive and rejoin with my new e-mail and continue my "Team of 3".
What was my account key? I have NO idea.
Is there still a possibility to access and/or change the old account info to my new one? (We really hadn't done all that much anyhow because those computers were SO slow by what we have today.) Or should I just create a new team and let the old one fade into the shadows?
