mastodon admin troubles 

Has anyone managed to revive a mastodon account that suffers from this issue? (I'm on the latest version.)

github.com/mastodon/mastodon/i

Last night I tried the suggested hack to users.rb, used tootctl to modify the account I'm trying to reactivate with the --enable and --approve flags (the only relevant options) and spent some time hunting for where the security code is stored in the postgres database but I'm still locked out.

It's not a huge deal, I can easily make new accounts, but it would be kinda nice to reclaim my old one too... (I'm planning to use it as a secondary place to post things related to the radio.af project...)

If anyone else is just trying to recover one account, the security code is stored in plaintext in the database in `users.sign_in_token` (I was looking at all the accounts tables before, doh)

`select sign_in_token from users where id=<your id>`
