Can I change my email address here?

  1. The email service I've been using is going out of business. When I go to my profile, make the change, and hit "save changes", it says "saving", but that never changes, and the email address change isn't saved. Is there any way to make this work?

    Unfortunately, I don't know of a way. However since you have no photos or content I can see, you can simply join as a new member. If you want the same screen name, adding a numeral will likely do the trick.
     
  3. Sherman, I doubt not having a working email provider is a problem as the site can’t send out emails at the moment :)

  4. My university email account may be withdrawn for retirees soon so I changed my email account to a gmail account. I had all sorts of trouble. I could sign in to the Home pages and access the galleries but not the Forums. Since I post mostly on the No Words forum and have made friends there I wasn't happy. I reset my details back to the old academic email adress and it's all working. I'm not sure what will happen when that email address is no longer active.
     
  5. Harry & Sherman,

    Your email address is just a login ‘username’ and I’m almost certain it will work even after your email address becomes invalid.

    PN doesn’t use emails any more (because the email server is broken)

    I have a Flickr login and the email address I used as a ‘username’ is no longer valid but I can still login to Flickr
     
  6. Thanks, Ludmilla. I thought that might be the case so I shall wait and see what happens!
