Help User privileges lost?

    Help!! User privileges lost??

    Hi!

    I updated my e-mail address today, and it seems I managed to delete access privileges, for example to make new posts.

    Have I been banned, or something?

    Did you receive the confirmation e-mail? If so, did you follow the requested link?

    Nope.
    Have I typed in the new address wrongly, perhaps?

    You can try inputting the new address again. Wait for a confirmation e-mail and click the link in it.

    Well, I am being denied permission to edit my profile, so I cannot re-type my e-mail address..

    It's probably best to PM one of us the correct email address, and we can check. However, the only person who can change it is Greg, so ultimately, he'll have to make any amendments, should they be deemed necessary.

    Can you PM me the email address that you are currently using, i.e. the one you attempted to change your profile e-mail to?

    Edit: cristo beat me to it.

    Hey, the three Brits working together - like the three Musketeers! :tongue2:

    Okay, Cristo will get the honour!

    Edit:
    Sent it to Hootenanny instead.

    I just notice the problem.

    Greg will have to clear it up. I think I had a similar problem when I updated my profile.

    According to the forum records, I HAD typed in the wrong address (a dumb mixture of old&new addresses), so I guess I'll have to wait for Greg to sort it out.

    Hootenanny has received my correct e-mail address.

    If the wrong email address was entered, then that is the address that received the confirmation email address. Greg will have to edit the original account.


    I've come to the conclusion that it is best to notify someone that one is about to change a critical profile attribute before one actual does that - just in case!

    Since it is the same as the one I use regularly, sure.

    Okay, okay, I am slightly conservative when it comes to passwords and suchlike..
