You need to PM one of the moderators your new address. If you send it to me, I'll update if for you.

Colin,

I am not 1000% on the phpbb admin panel and what options there are and are not,
But why is it we cannot change this ourselves? In most BB's today you are able to change your email address yourself. How come this has been disable on plusnet forums?

Regards,

So John,

Is there any reason why users arent able to change this themselves ( apart from the obvious "It hasnt been enabled in the admin panel" bit )?

It's not a setting, its been deliberately removed from the template, again - I've no idea why.

I think its because the forum has been pretty deeply integrated into the PlusNet Portal so some of its components have changed from the original phpBB software.

Actually, I seem to recall PHPBB came in to effect mid May 2003... I'm pretty certain it was then, as I remember it was around my birthday (May), and I also remember it was around my GCSEs (summer 2003)!

Well Thomas I have very definitely produced the Christmass message 3 times now so in my mind that got to be over 3 years and heading to 4 :?

Nope, we're both right but you're looking at it wrong. Cheesy

Three Christmas messages equals...

One at end of 2005
One at end of 2004
One at end of 2003

So as I said, PHPBB (and us) started out in 2003. Smiley

OK so the forums will have been running on phpBB for 3 FULL years in May this year.

Still more than the almost 2 that Collin thought :lol:

But your only a young lad Thomas and still know what day it is. wait till you get to my advanced years then you will realise how hard it is to keep track of time at all Wink
