Worked for me. Oddly, last year my email address was correct (I used to get post notifications), but when I just checked it was set to the same as my username...

Go to 'Control Panel' (top right under 'Logged in as.....', then 'Edit Profile'. There is a check box down the page a bit.

204 people now verified since I implemented the system a few hours ago. I guess that proves the code works!

Thanks to everyone for your understanding.

Cheers, Chris

the red banner has been off and on all evening for me. Don't see why.

Does the forum need to get everybodys new email addresses so that they can be hacked again?

All a load of B0||0X if you ask me.

Hi All

I've had a few issues recently where people have changed PCs, forgotten passwords, etc and have not been able to fix it themselves due to entering an invalid email address on the site. I also get a whole load of bounced email from people who subscribe to topics, and other things that activate email notifications, but have invalid addresses which is getting out of hand.

I'm therefore implementing a verification system for email addresses as of 12th September 2011. If your address has not been verified by then you will not be able to post until it is.

Now before we get anyone ranting about 'spam'....

1. Yes, we did have a problem with spammers trawling the site for email addresses. However, the bug that allowed them to do this was fixed over a year ago.

2. Only registered and verified (using the phone call system if in the last few years) members can view email addresses of other members

3. In your control panel, there is an option to display your email address. The default is 'on', however if you turn it off only Fozzie and myself will be able to see your address.

Any queries or comments please drop me an email or u2u.

Cheers, Chris
