Incredibly basic question, but I cannot see how to change my email address on this forum.

I've clicked on my account name --> "Edit your profile" and there I see how to change my username. However, it's my previous email address that is no longer valid. I've also searched for questions on this and found nothing. I'm quite surprised here actually, because this is really fundamental account management, so I'm probably missing something incredibly obvious, but I really can't see it.

How do I keep my current account on biostars, but change the email address that I use associated with it?

Done. Thanks for the answer.

This must create a lot of work for the admins, and I suppose there's some security/spam-flter reason for this, but if it can't be changed, I would recommend at least some kind of note on the "Edit your profile" just telling people "you cannot change your email address on your own because ..."

In any case, thanks for the answer @GenoMax

The next version of biostars will support that. It will be very similar to what support.bioconductor.org currently looks like. The change hopefully will come soon.

You should email admin at biostars.org with this request.
