Does Account Exist?

Ever wonder if an account really exist? Perhaps your trying to remember an old account and password of yours you forgot and you're not sure if the account name you're entering even exist or not. Well there's a simple "check" that lets us know if an account does exist or not.

Try logging in on an account that you know for sure does exist, but purposefully enter the wrong password. You will be prompted with a message that reads "The account or password you provided could not be found in our database.". Next, try logging into an account you're not sure exist, for example just hit random keys both for the account and password. You will be prompted with a message that reads "The account name you provided does not exist in our database.".

Notice anything? The message changes when an account exist or not. If it existed, you would be prompted with the first message. If it was completely non-existent, you would be prompted with the second. So if you're trying to remember an old account of yours this should save you some time, at least to determine wheter or not the account name you are using actually exist.
