We had a lot of people contacting us after losing access to the old e-mail address (especially people using a business e-mail address), so, since a few days ago, we changed the requirement for setting a new one.

You will now receive a confirmation only to the new e-mail address.

Reminder: you might have to logout from the Forum and log back in order to have e-mail notifications working on the new one

I feel a bit like a fool but I can't seem how to change my registered Email address. When I got to the Email and Notifications section it doesn't give me a field where I could adjust my email address. Is it somewhere else?


Try deleting your account and then make a new account with email address you want to use. This might help you!
