Cannot Change Email Address

Postby banjo » Mar 21st, '18, 04:21

I need to change my email address, and the forum will not let me do that.

I tried doing it on my account page on the forum, and it rejects the password that I used to log in. I know I am entering the password correctly. I tried multiple times.

I went to https://identity.mageia.org/ and logged in there using that same password. I logged in successfully, but the email address field has no edit button. It apparently is read-only.

Could someone please tell me how I can change my email address for the forum.

Thanks,
Banjo

I just read the FAQ on https://identity.mageia.org/, and it says that changing the email address is not supported at this time.

Please note!
As of 19 February 2018, it is temporarily impossible for anyone to change the e-mail address of his/her Mageia.org user account. The option was unsafe. A sysadmin will look into restoring the function with much better security asap.


Sorry if I confused anyone.

Please don't be sorry. You just shared the info which is possible to overlook. We're all humans here ;).
