Problem changing the email address associated with my UNIX.com account

Hello
I have had an account for many years.
I have attempted to change the email address associated with my account.

After logging-in to unix.com and revising my email address, I received a 're-verification' email at that new address.
The first link in that email took me to a page with the following error message:
"Invalid User specified. If you followed a valid link, please notify the administrator".

If that URL does not work, the email instructs the user to go to "https://www.unix.com/register.php?a=ver" and enter my username and re-activation code.

This I did and received the following error message:
"You have entered an invalid username or password. Please press the back button, enter the correct details and try again. Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Click here!".

The email advises: "If you are still having problems verifying please contact a member of our support staff," hence this post.
Are you able to offer any assistance, please?
Thank you.

What was your old userid or email?

Maybe just create a new account?

I see this link works:

Code:
https://www.unix.com/register.php?a=ver

We have been making changing and upgrading, so it might be easier to post the info here until we get everything upgraded.

Also, we recently purges all account with zero post which have links and have not been active since 1 Jan 2018.

If you did not have any posts and were not active in 2018, it's better to create a new account.

If your login account works, just post the info (your username and email address) and I'll fix it manually for now and email you your new password.

UNIX and Linux

Unix (trademarked as the UNIX certification mark) is a very mature family of multitasking, multiuser computer operating systems that evolved from the original AT&T Unix. Unix development starting in the 1970s by legendary Bell Labs programmers Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie, and others. Unix was first targeted for the Bell System and AT&T licensed Unix to outside parties. In the 1970s time period, this lead to a variety of for-profit as well as not-for-profit Unix variants.
In the early days, this included the University of California, Berkeley (BSD), Microsoft (Xenix), IBM (AIX), and Sun Microsystems (Solaris). In the early 1990s, AT&T sold their Unix rights to Novell. In 1995 Novell sold their Unix business to the Santa Cruz Operation (SCO). The UNIX trademark was passed to The Open Group, a "neutral" industry consortium. The Open Group promoted the use of the UNIX trademark for certified operating systems that comply with the Single UNIX Specification (SUS). In 2014 Apple's macOS became the Unix version with the largest global install base and macOS remains the largest Unix-user base today.
Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel. The Linux kernel is an operating system kernel first released by Linus Torvalds on 17 September 1991. Linux distributions include the Linux kernel, system software and libraries. Popular free open source Linux distributions include Debian, Fedora, and Ubuntu. Commercial Linux distributions include Red Hat Enterprise Linux and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. Linux may be freely modified and redistributed. Anyone on the planet may create a Linux distribution for any purpose.
