    Write Down Backup Code For Two Factor!!!

    Numerous people have still not written down their two factor backup code and put it in their wallets.

    IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A BACKUP CODE AND YOU ARE ON TWO FACTOR PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING:

    1. Disable two factor
    2. Re-enable two factor
    3. WRITE DOWN THE BACKUP CODE YOU ARE GIVEN


    Best regards,
    Richard

    This is pretty obvious. Not sure why people are having a hard time following this advice.

    I got pictures of the code + the code (.txt) on both my computer and ipad + I wrote it on a piece of paper. I dont know why it wouldnt be your first intention to BE SURE the code is in your possession cause if something happens youre screwd. However, I know that some people might lose their papers (thats why I write it in lot of places).

    TL;DR - Lose your code, lose your account.

    I'd like to think not. More like Lose your code, don't get mad when it takes a long time to get back on your account.

    Unless I can verify your ownership somehow you can't get your account back if you lose two factor recovery code.

    Could someone not talk to staff/trusted members on Skype as proof? For example if I talked to Roary on Skype and brought up something we talked about months ago could he not then relay that information to you?

    I have my code still, I'd just like to think that if somehow I managed to lose it that I wouldn't be banished as a result :p

    Is this the 32 letter/number combination or is it a second code? (The 32 combination is the only code I've written down and I don't want to re-enable my 2factor if it's not necessarily needed)

    I believe so. To test it log out, and then log back in. Enter the code and it should authenticate you. That being said I'm 99% code that 32 digit code is it.
