Hi guys,

Changed email address on my account to my Outlook.com one and never got the activation email. Resent but still zip. Set it back to my Gmail and no activation email there either.

Now I cant vote in polls or look at any profiles - including my own! Get a 403. Sent two emails to the only addresses I can find on here and no replies after a few weeks.

Any mod point me in the right direction please?

Thanks,


Steve

I'm confused, you're logged in and able to post, so surely there's nothing wrong with your account?

Edit: I fixed this account a few days ago ;)

I just tried this myself using a test account and the change email address method works, the system only breaks down if the mail from Neowin.net goes in the spam/junk folder or something.

Thanks - all working fine now. Didn't test just before I posted. Could post during the problem, but couldn't vote in polls or view any profiles.
