how can I change my account email?

:?: I have an old non valid email address in my account here and would like to change it to my current one so I can get notifications.

How do I do that please?

  1. Click on your username in the top-right corner of the forums (next to "Private messages")
  2. Click on "User Control Panel"
  3. Go to the "Profile" tab
  4. Click on "Edit account settings"
  5. Replace your old e-mail address with the new one and fill in your current password. Hit "Submit"
  6. You will get an account activation e-mail to your new address. Click on the activation link in this e-mail.
  7. Done. :D

Greg,
I tried what you advised and it did not work. I got a message saying the email address is already in use and that the password is too short. How can I email he administrator to ask him to change it for me?

In fact, once I got these messages:

The entered email address is already in use.
You did not enter your current password.

This was with a new longer password.

With my current old and shorter pwd, I got the message that the password was too short.

I think only the administrator might be able to solve this issue.

So far I have been keeping track of my post by the tedious means of copying the url of my posts in the txt file and copying that line on my www address box--tantamount to going from New York to Boston through Peking.

I'm sorry you're having trouble.

Use the "Contact us" link at the bottom of the forums to send me your new e-mail address and desired password.
