Same mistake a lot of others made. I added my old email address then logged in when the option to change the "preferred" email address seemed to fail. Now I have a new account with my full name (not good) as a screen name.
Could you PLEASE link this account with my old forum account. My screen name/login name was Ron O.
I can't even make settings changes with this account because of the 25 post rule. User since 2008.
