Where I can change my email address for this forum?

edited February 18 in Site Issues

Hello,
after my account creation I saw that this isn´t my new email address!
Is there a way that I can change it?

    You can't change your email, unfortunately. I just checked that myself. But when you made this account, did you use your new email for it? And how did the old one come about?

  • Not criticizing or anything, but there's already a topic in this Site Issues forum that explains a little bit about the same issue as this one, https://forum.winworldpc.com/discussion/10898/how-can-i-change-my-email

  • Where can I contact the administrator?

    In their profile, you will see a button that says "Message". That's where you can send members private messages.

    Well, "explains" is a bit subjective...

    Oh okay. I guess I misspoke when I made that post... The topic which that URL is linked to sort of covers the same issue as this topic.

  • The way the forum and library are linked together restricts how user IDs can be used. User management is done through the drop down menu in the library http://winworldpc.com , not the forum. But it looks like changing e-mail addresses is disabled for normal users.

    I know as a solid fact that is impossible to change user IDs, as that will badly mess up the linkage. The last time I tried to change an e-mail address, I had some issues. Ideally Calvin would weigh in on this, but I have not seen him around in ages.

    For a long standing member, I'd give that another try, but the OP requested a change immediately after signing up, which is suspicious.

    Does that mean that Calvin is probably going to get demoted as admin for inactivity? I hope not, because he's actually an important backbone of WinWorld, as he's in charge of this site's structure and its CMS, Adventure. Although I have seen Calvin constantly active here, he was just lurking here a couple weeks ago.

  • He is probably just busy with other things. I would not worry about it too much. Things just keep working, so I have not needed to pester him about anything lately.
