WOG needs your help
 
We need your help with updating your current email address, here's how to do that;


How do I change my user details?
You can change your account information using the User Control Panel. For basic profile details (including your email address and password), click on the 'Edit Your Details' option from within the User CP. This page allows you to set a number of required and optional details, some of which will be displayed on your public profile. With the exception of your email address, do not enter information that you do not wish to be publicly viewable.

John,

As long as your email address is up to date you don't have to do anything.

Heres a little more info on what we need.
We have lots of members with old email addresses,old addresses that do not work anymore.
The WOG sends out all kinds of emails daily,from happy birthday to forwarding threads etc to your address.
When we send these emails out to a bad address we get the emails "bounced " back to WOG.
So,why does this matter?
Well,i have no idea how this works but heres how i understand it,when we get a bounced back email that email is counted somehow,when we get too many of them back we get a "bad mark" next to the WOG name,basically it makes it look like WOG is sending out spam.
Which is not so good in the computer world.

So,please update your files,we need to get this cleaned up so we can stay in business!

Thanks everyone!!

Not sure how the forum software (vBulletin) works, but if you send a all members email (broadcast) and then record the bounces, you could build a 'white-list' for future emailing purposes and also use the 'bounce-list' to programmatically purge all the defunct addresses. Sounds like a common problem, I would think vBulletin would have this capability.

Randy and John,
Most if not all people that will read this post are not your primary issue. Its the non participating members that joined but have dropped off the map. Is there anyway that when you get a returned email that you can suspend/delete that account. If the member in question truly is a member then they will contact the WOG administrators to fix the problem.

It may be easy to you guys,but not to me!

It's not easy . I am of the opinion it's often made difficult. Job security?

maybe we need to get multiple ways of contact.

Right now you guys are over-complicating it, just make sure that your email is up to date for now.
