• Please note that signatures and avatars on iLounge are only available after reaching certain membership thresholds.

    Signatures

    In order to be able to have a signature, users must have been a member for 7 days and have accumulated 10 posts.


    Avatars

    Avatars are reserved for only the most senior of iLounge forum members. Users will not be able to use an avatar until they have been a member for a minimum of one year, and accumulated 1,500 posts. This is considered the Veteran Lounger level of membership.


    A note on post whoring...

    We welcome and encourage our members to make valuable and useful contributions to the iLounge forums, and to have fun, socialize, and actively participate in discussions on the forums. However, as per the Forum Policy, we will not tolerate excessive and unnecessary posting. Posting inane and pointless messages solely to increase one's post count in the hopes of reaching a higher membership level will be dealt with by the forum staff. Unnecessary posts may be subject to removal, and persisting in this behaviour will result in post counts being reduced and any further action being taken as deemed necessary.


  • With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

The steps are:
  1. Click on your name to open your Account Details
  2. Click on Change next to your email address.
  3. Enter the new email address
  4. Enter your current password.
  5. Click Save.
After all that it reverts to the old one?
Or are you getting the "Oops! We ran into some problems." error?

I got the error repeatedly, but each time my old email got a message that it was changed.
It looked like it was changed in the dialog, but I can't be sure. When I changed it back, the other email did not get notified. So my guess is that this process does not work.

I'll ping the someone higher up to see if something is broken.

I did do the above steps. The old email is retained and I keep getting a notification about a reply to a previous thread which I have read on numerous occasions.

Weird. You and I are the only ones posting here. You could unwatch the thread (click the unwatch link at the top right) and we can direct message you when the issue is updated.
