It's been a month or so since I logged in, and I couldn't get my old login to work. Hit the Google button instead and that got me in, but my avatar (my old Glitch name) isn't showing up the way it used to look. It's the new default. Did I mess up? I miss Trill. :)

There is an account with username "Trill" in the database, registered today (I'm assuming that was you). Is there an older account you would like to edit/delete, or did you solve your problem?
