    We will be upgrading forum software soon. If you have more than one registered SoWal Forum account with the same email, your accounts will be merged on upgrade.

    If you want accounts kept separate, you'll need to make sure you have different email addresses for each account.

    Click on "Settings" at the top of page. Scroll down on left side, click "Edit Email & Password", change email address to a unique one. Most people have multiple email addresses these days. If you need an email address there are lots of free services like yahoo, gmail, etc.

    You must enter your current password to change your email address. If you can't remember your password or need help, send us a message and we can change email manually, and/or supply you with a new password. Contact us at http://sowal.com/contact

    Tip: if you have a gmail address, i.e. "MyEmail@gmail.com", you can create an unlimited number of addresses with "MyEmail+text@gmail.com", where "text" is any combination of numbers or characters. Any mail sent to that address will come to your main gmail address.

    The new forum software will be faster and sleeker, with many enhancements and new features we're excited about!

    It allows logging in by email address, as well as username, which is the reason for needing unique email addresses for multiple accounts.
