Changing E-mail address on this site

  Fordy 13:12 17 Nov 05

When I enter a new E mail address and click 'update details' it refuses to accept it stating "this nickname is already being used".
I am not trying to change identities just address. What is the secret ploy?

I have done this many times without issue. Just changed my email address & updated without any issues at all ....

Are you over typing your user name? I never did.

I am highlighting the existing e-mail address and inserting new one and then clicking 'update details'
What more must I do?
If I click update before I start it still says "nickname being used"

Well, that's what i do. Have you clicked on 'Contact Moderator' button as FE can see this in realtime & help that way?

I have left two messages for the moderator - I wonder if he is sending me E-mails! Thanks

maybe you need another nickname for it to work as your nickname still exists

sinbad1 -- are you saying that to change my email address I also have to change names>

I am sending another message to the moderator - fingers crossed for third time lucky.

yes if i create a new account then choose fordy it will tell me the name is allready in use and to choose another one.I presume it will be linked to your old email ad.You would need to cancel your old account and submit a new account with different email ad. How you do this i,m not sure

could you create a new account with a new nickname then change Nickname to your old one

That's strange, I have just changed my email address. I was sent a re-activation email to the new address where I had to click on the activation link, this bought me back to the site where I had to enter my password and click on the confirm button. It was no problem at all, so I don't know why you are having these problems.
