Hi beautiful people.

I feel like such a dumb dumb but I need help. I downloaded the last wii u update (which finally stopped youtube videos from freezing) and can navigate through the Gamepad but I cannot log into the Nintendo Shop because I need to reenter my password which I forgot. No big deal I thought so I clicked on the forgotten password option.

A password reset was emailed to the address I had created specifically for my Nintendo ID...which would be great if that email address had not been deleted due to inactivity. I tried to delete my Nintendo ID to create a new one but again a password is asked!

The Nintendo Q&A unfortunately had no solution so I am turning to you beautiful people for help...also feel free to laugh but not too much....please.
I came, I saw, I pressed reset and tried again!

Just reopen/activate your email and then click forgot password again.

You can do that in most email services.
Else
Re register the same email address and try again.
It takes only a few minutes.

Next time use the same password that you use for club Nintendo.

Thanks guys. I called Nintendo but no answer. The automated IVR keeps directing me to nintendo's techforums so i guess I will try that later on today.
