Change Email Address

Forums - Website Topics - Change Email Address

I toyed with whether I wanted to make this change for well over a year because allowing users to change their email addresses (after having confirmed it via the registration process), implied I would need to confirm them again if you changed it in your profile after the fact...    ...but after much deliberation, I decided that's really unnecessary - the whole act of confirming emails during registration is solely to ensure the person registering is "real" and not a bot. Once you've done that - what do I care if you go and change your email address???

So - for those that have wanted it - have at it!!! It's available in your settings...

Oh cool, I actually don't have access to the email address I originally used to sign up for this site.



My email that I only ever used to sign up here was logged into about 2 weeks ago. I got the security warning emailed to another account of mine. It was for an alt account I made a few years back when I was banned. Who has access to the email database?

Only Trucks and myself (and Brett, of course) would have access to user info - but NONE OF US have access to passwords as they are stored encrypted. So, I don't see how anybody here on this site, could be involved with accessing your email...

Your email account could have just as easily been legit hacked having nothing to do with this site.

Uh, yeah. Beats plain text for sure though, and I suppose I'm not exactly surprised.



Thank God. My registration email was my old college email account that I can't access anymore. Now I can finally change it.
