Our lovely, but antiquated (in software terms) Bulletin Board program for the VO-BB lets you, the registered user, do and change all kinds of things in your Profile. But one absolute NO-NO is changing your email. The way it is designed you will lock yourself out if you try, permanently, and you cannot fix it.

Luckily I can, but it takes a bit of time, and three recitations of an old Romany incantation that I have not written down.... and even if I say it right it doesn't always work on the first try.

SO, PLEASE DON'T CHANGE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS. ASK ME AND I SHALL MAKE IT HAPPEN, DEAR FRIEND.

Bruce

It's confusing because if you go in to edit your profile, it says that is a required field. So even if you enter your current email address (as I did the first time I edited my profile), you get locked out Embarrassed

My fault I fear. I need to enter a new registrant's email as well as user name and password. I'm updating the "Read Me First" section on joining.

You might need to re-institute the fish-slap threat.

Just a reminder, if you want to change your email, don't! Our antiquated software won't handle you changing your own. Your dear moderator has to do it or you will be frozen out until I fix it. I only bring it up because the fourth person has now done it in the past month.

Thanks!!

Even our best and brightest can get locked out.

Let me change your email please!

Thank you!
