Actually, I haven't, but I've found a way in which someone could. This is a FYI for Mike really, but I'm sure others will wish to comment.

I've just changed the email address in my profile. I was prompted to enter my login password before the forum software would accept the change. No problem. I did so, clicked on submit and then the forum software told me it had de-activated my account and that I had to re-activate it from the email it had sent to my new email address.

Fair enough, but what if I had made a typo in the new email address? Account locked and no way to re-activate it.

No more LXF forums. Would I have to go back to Windows? Sad

That's when you click the Contact link at the top and mail me Smile In the six years I've been running this site, it hasn't happened, so I don't think we need to worry about it.

Indeed. And I've just thought of an advantage for the system as it is. However, this depends upon someone convincing a certain fishy member of the forum to change their email address. He will almost certainly make a typo, and then.... Twisted Evil
