Unactivated SMF account... Need Help Please.
« on: September 16, 2010, 11:16:58 PM »
Ok, so I received a pm just now on my SM.org account from Amacyth (Sleepy) saying that I need to update my e-mail address on SM.org, which I did within my profile.  But once I did this, it logged me out and said that I need to activate my account via a link that was sent to my e-mail addy.  The only problem is that it was Sent to my OLD E-Mail Address, not the new one.  The old e-mail address I had is no longer accessible to me since it was through the ISP I had at that time (back in May).  I really don't have a ton of time to go creating a fake user account with a valid e-mail address, especially since I'll have to search the web for another free internet e-mail address, and than create a fake account on SM.org just to let them know of this so that they can hopefully activate my account with the correct e-mail address.  Or atleast send me the activation link to my correct e-mail address that I changed it to, since I believe that it did change the e-mail address in my profile just fine.  Doesn't make any sense to do this when you are logged into SMF, going to profile, and have to retype your password anyways in order to change these settings, and than make you have to re-activate the account all over again.  That is just too much security that is not necessary.  If I put my password into it in order to change my e-mail address in my profile, than that should be enough security.  That should be the end of that.  But having to re-activate your profile through a link that was sent to your OLD E-mail address, after already typing in your password within the profile page, doesn't make any sense.

Somebody help me.  Can someone please alert SMF (Sleepy, or someone on the SMF Team) about this so that I can get my account re-activated?

Thanks :)

Ok, sorry for just now getting back to this topic.  Problem was resolved shortly thereafter.  Thanks anyways Deezel.  Someone else jumped on it for me, and was on SMF in like 5 minutes later.

Cheers :)
