Update your email address - its newsletter time

I'm getting this message on every page:



I've tried changing my email address to get rid of it but no luck.

If you've updated your e-mail and still see the message, log out, re-log in and change your e-mail address again. If that doesn't work you need to set up a new e-mail address and do the whole thing again. It sometimes takes a few attempts.

Yep. Good CO did it so that people will read the newsletter and people who haven't yet registered know about it too.

Thanks for the suggestion Legs, I'd already tried that before posting the message.

Ok ta gents, I'll just ignore it then.

(like I do with Sven's posts) :)

Hi deliberate and not sophisticated enough to know if you actually have changed your email address. Also it doesn't really think that you registered with rambo_22_nija@hotmail.com although we do have a few of those - someone has a superb bob_14_int or something along those lines for example.

Anyway, it'll go offline tomorrow. Meanwhile please live with it for that short time, so that the weekday users get the pleasure.

Tell you what - I'll see if the software makers are interested in adding a 'dismiss' button for us. That would make it a genuinely useful feature.

Might even try it myself.

Now I is reelee confused! I've received every newsletter (all two of them) to date to my existing e-mail address. Does yon message mean I have to update it, and if so, how do I do that? It seems to work fine as it is, so why is an update necessary?

No. It means that if your email address is up to date, you're fine. If the one you joined with in 200x has fallen by the wayside then update.

Ah, gotcha. Many thanks, mucker. Much appreciated. :)

I'm working on a 'dismiss' button now so you can get rid of it.

I didn't think it was so tricky to work it out! Maybe a multi-page questionnaire format is needed.
"Have you checked your ARRSE account email address recently"... "If no click this link"... "Is it valid?"... "If no... do XYZ"

These are back on but should now me 'dismissable' and stay closed. Errors on a postcard please.

GCO, when I 'dismiss' the message, the page refreshes but the message is still there.

(GCO in disguide)

Have you disabled javascript? If so please allow it for arrse. If not can you tell me what browser you're using?
 
#16
Using Safari. It has now disappeared-I'm not sure if that is me or GCO has removed it from everyone.
 
#17
I've taken it off, but would like to use it again in the future. Seems OK on Safari to me. Have you stopped your browser using javascript? You'd probably know if you've done this, but if it doesn't mean anything to you, can you go here:

And tell me what is says in the first few lines. Mine is:

Being a computer dummy, it means very little to me, but here is what it says:
