Puck, can you check and see what I did? I tried to change my email address to my current gmail account and now I can no longer log in.

    • I was able to reactivate my account with my current email address.

        Things silently break without telling the site admin about it. Sure would be nice if they would break and tell me about it so I could fix them, but no they're rather just not work. Me? Sarcastic?... more
        • I guess it didn't exactly break..Erik_, Fri Jan 11 12:01pm
          I updated my email address which deactivated my account until I reactivated it through my new email. Wasn't sure if the reactivate email would actually send. (I'm not sure if there was a message... more

            I remember having to fix the e-mail sending part after moving to a new host. That was one of those things that died silently--and it wasn't just because of the new host. I think the contact form on... more

                  • I wonder if we could change that...Puckdropper, Thu Jan 31 2:52pm
                    I didn't write the script, so I don't really know. I don't see why we couldn't set a or something. (Yeah, that's still iffy but at least it's standard practice of... more
