Changing email address

Postby cornmuse » Sun Sep 29, 2013 12:04 pm

I'm wanting to chang my user email address and using my logon password (in user settings) I get "(you've used the wrong password dummy!). I can log on (obviously), p/w = what is stored in 'firefox - options - security - saved passwords', it gets me here. Help -c-

That's odd. Are you sure you're using the same password as stored in firefox? Differrent capitalization or something?

PM me your new e-mail address, and I should be able to make the change for you.

If you don't get the password thing sorted out, I can also reset it to a temporary password and e-mail it to you, so you can get into the control panel and change it to whatever you want. Or, Jody or Joseph can probably extract your password and e-mail it to you, but if your old user e-mail is no longer valid, we'll have to change it first.

Your e-mail addy seems to be updated now. I clicked your username, then "send e-mail", and my mail program opened up with your new address.

I'm going to experiment with my user info, and see if I have the same trouble. If it's just you it may be easier to reset your password.
