Changing my e-mail

Why will the site not let me change my e-mail? I put in my current password then change my email and click the button "save changes" and nothing happens!

Bit of glitch with that page. Add your password into the "Change Passwords" fields. Don't have to enter in a new password, just add your existing ones into the two fields (for a total of 3 times on that page)

Glitch won't recognize that you entered in anything unless those fields are filled. If it still doesn't work for you, PM me the email change and I'll do it for you.

OMG this site is the most frustrating site for making changes! If I do as you said above it tells me the password I entered does not match??

UPDATE: the only way I could get it to work was to change the password AND the e-mail but it seems ok now.....

Hang in there Wing'n it, I think with all the hacking going on, all of us will be right behind you.

Cyber life is not easy and can be quite frustrating. Here's a good one, it's just not this site but all the others we have to navigate in our daily lives. Is it any wonder we have so many folks taking those funny blood pressure pills. Remember back in the day when computers were going to make our lives 'simple and easy'?

@Wing'n it it made you change? Wouldn't accept it if you just put in your current password? That work around has been our silver lining for this glitch.

I put my "current" password in all three boxes and changed the e-mail in the bottom two and clicked the (save changes) button. It came back and said "passwords don't match" so I then put in the current password in the top box and changed my password and e-mail and that worked? I don't know why but I got it done.....

We are seeing some browsers/sites combinations are not picking up the special characters when the password is copy/pasted. That might have been what happened here. Glad to hear you did get it to work for you at least. Sorry for all the trouble.
