TV Tropes has an extremely odd form of login, and there seems to be no way to recover a lost password or to change an existing password.

It can be reset at http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/password_reset.php . I don't know if this is new, or the thread is just a manual alternative.

Ah, it looks like they've created a new account type which includes e-mail addresses. So all I need to do is to reset the password on my old account, log in, upgrade it to a version with an e-mail address, and then reset it again. Or something. – TRiG Jun 2 '13 at 19:46

As far as I understand from this forum discussion of TV Tropes, only admins can do that. Just ask them to do it posting a request on that thread.
