How can I edit my MakeUseOf profile?

Neil H March 19, 2014

I am unable to edit my profile. I can login OK & if I click on my icon & then profile the page changes with the message “loading” at the top but nothing ever happens. I have tried using Chrome & Firefox on my PC + Chrome & Safari on my iPad.  Any ideas? I want to edit my email address stored with you.

    Hi Neil,

    Erez here, in charge of MakeUseOf's login system. I'm afraid the system currently requires us to do this manually for you - this is a limitation of the PunchTab platform we use to implement gamification.

    Please email me - - from BOTH your new and old email addresses with the same message, so I can confirm it is indeed you. Of course, don't forget to mention which address is the new one and which is the old, so I can locate your account and make the change for you.

    I know this is convoluted and am working with PunchTab to look for a saner solution.

    As far as I know, the feature to edit your profile has not yet been implemented. I believe in order to change your email address with MakeUseOf, you will first need to create a new account under that email and merge it with your old one. I have notified our technical team and they should be with you shortly to assist you..
