Default Changing email address at PrimeNet

I would like to change my email address for my PrimeNet account. As I have 4 machines that run Prime95 do I have to change email address on each machine or is it enough to change it only on one machine, so that on others it will be changed automaticaly?

Well... the short answer is that you only have to change it on one. That will update the server. But if the other three decide to 'update' their user information, it gets reset back again, so I advise you to do it an all four.

Thanks PrimeCruncher!

Other three are set so that they contact PrimeNet every day. Will that reset email addy back to old one?

What will happen if I check "Create team using information above" from Test -> User Information on my home machine? Will that prevent other machines to change back to old email addy? Can that change email addy on my other machines to the new one?

Or is it some other way to change email form one machine on others? I borged some of other machines, so I will need to go around if I need to change it manualy on all of them.

Don't know for sure, but probably yes.

Creating a team, if I remember correctly, freezes user information, but then if you want to change it you have to e-mail George. It will prevent the other machines from changing the server back to the old one but will not change said machines to the new one.

The current PrimeNet server/Prime95 client design can't change the other machines based on updating one machine, no.

What about changing the user password? If I change the password in all the clients I run, then connect PrimeNet using one of the clients, will it change the password in my account?

It should, as long as you're running a recent version (i.e. 16 and later).

You cannot change the password on your account. You'll have to email me to do that.
