Having trouble updating my email address in my profile. It is saying my new email is reserved and cannot be used? Any suggestions?

What are you attempting to edit? If it is your "account email", know that it cannot be a GMail, Yahoo, or any other 'free' email account. It needs to be tied to a paid service of some type.

ie: Comcast.net

So here is how it works. Your account is fine, even if you don't use the 'old' email address anymore. (the one you registered with). The only difference is that you will not be able to receive 'alerts', if you have any programmed in.

You CAN change your display email to nearly anything you want. The site does not have PM's; so if you want members to be able to connect with you directly, you want to be sure that your display email is up to date.

For example, my registration email is Comcast.net

My display email for members to contact me is Gmail.com

Hope that helps.
