Lost account access

As a part of its privacy policy, NoBleme will protect your anonymity as much as possible. This means that you will never be sent any emails that could be used to link you to your identity on the website, or asking you to provide your password. On top of that, automated password recovery systems can be used in a few nefarious ways that we would rather not have to deal with. With this context in mind, NoBleme decided to not implement an automated account recovery process.

If you have lost access to your account (forgotten username, forgotten password, or otherwise), the only way to recover that access is to go on NoBleme's NoBleme's IRC chat server and ask for a website administrator to manually reset your account's password. No need to worry about identity usurpation, there is a strict process in place that will allow the administrator to verify your identity before doing the resetting.

The song Stan , released in 2000 by Eminem , tells the story of his imaginary "biggest fan", who is so obsessed with the singer that he can't stand being ignored by him, becomes violent towards his girlfriend, and eventually commits a murder-suicide.

Inspired by the song, the word "stan" took a life of its own, as a way to qualify people who are particularly overzealous in their defense of a celebrity, a media, or anything else. Even though it usually has a negative connotation, there are some people who enjoy calling themselves stans of a celebrity or a fandom.

It can also be used as a verb, to call someone out for being blindly defensive of something. This is why you might sometimes see people being asked to "stop stanning for X", implying that they are purposefully refusing to acknowledge the negative aspects of a person, media, or something else.

Although it is sometimes claimed the name "stan" is a combination of the words "stalker" and "fan", nothing proves (or disproves) that it was purposefully picked by Eminem for this specific reason.
