Just thought I would pass this info on because I was worried when I changed my e-mail. Suddenly, I wasn't seeing pictures, wasn't able to post a new thread or reply to any thread and my Avatar was gone. YIKES!!
But then when I checked my e-mail, I replied to the request "Since you have recently changed your email, we require that you verify your new email address. You will only need to visit the URL once to have your account updated." Everything is back to the way it was. WHEW !!!
