Apple ID glitch?
I've seen several posts about similar problems, but the replies all tell people they're on MuseScore.com and it apparently hasn't been investigated any further.
I wonder if my post has already been dismissed as identical to them without having been read.
To be clear: I am not on MuseScore.com. I am on MuseScore.org.
I created my account here within the hour. (I have taken some time to compile a detailed account of my issue and the recursive problem, below.) I have not navigated off of this site (.org) during that time.
I created an account using Apple ID log in. As one user described: This means I did not receive any confirmation emails or .org specific passwords.
It seems that since these details do not exist in the system, I am unable to make changes to my account.
My account page says I only need to input a password if I want to change my e-mail address or password - however: If I try to change my username from the string of characters "r4j5v87mzw", the page prompts me to input the password it explicitly says is not required if I'm not doing either of said two things.
Directly related to that: my account has been assigned the e-mail address "email@example.com"; which is definitely not an address I have any access to, nor that I deliberately sought to create. I cannot change this e-mail address, as stated above, because I must input a password that I was never prompted to create - a password I cannot create without verifying my identity. I cannot verify my identity, because I cannot fill in the "Current Password" field, as it clearly does not accept a BLANK entry.
While creating this account, I was given the option to display or hide my e-mail address.
Perhaps this is related to the problem?
At this point: I will log out and learn what happens when I try to either log back in or create a new account while NOT hiding my e-mail address. I was on the fence about hiding it, so attempting to make the other choice is no big deal for me.
Thank you for reading to the end of my efforts to articulate my technical issue.
