Email address change issue

Hi Neo/Scott,

I decided to change my email address in my details from my earlier one to the one I got with my VIP membership.

After the change, I got a message that I'll receive an activation link at the new address to re-activate my account.

I haven't got that link till now. Also, all my VIP member privileges seem to have vanished.

I can't even change my personal details.

Please help.

Hi there.

Your account had been reset to "User awaiting email confirmation". I've changed it back, as you can see.

How are you checking the email? In a browser, or mail client? Do you have a spam filter that maybe trapped it?

I had checked in Spam too.

And, thanks.

And, one more thing, my bits seem to have increased by at least 50k, out of nowhere...... (Yes, I know I am being honest Smilie)...
