eMail change

Post by bluthusten » Mon Jan 29, 2007 1:54 am

First up; sorry for my bad english.

Well, i wanted to change my old eMail because it's no longer in use (got new address). So i changed into the new one, it says something like "you got an confirmation email", i didn't really read it :(

Now i don't got any mail von my new account and i can't login into the old one, and i can't login into aniDB :(

Now i think i misstyped the eMail or something, what to do? :/

The forum login is not related to the AniDB login so the FAQ would do no good.

The wiki does however answer this question:

I forgot my password and the email address is no longer valid

well,

as long as you still know your anidb username and your password, you can just login using those and you will see an error page which tells you that your account is not yet activated.
On that page, you can then change your email address.

If you are unable to receive emails to the email address currently stored in anidb _AND_ you have forgotten your password... BAD LUCK.

BYe!
