changing username and email registration with CNET

by slowpoke1 / November 22, 2005 1:13 AM PST

How do I change my username and email with the registration department of CNET.
I just signed up minutes ago, but am already unhappy with the fact that I have received ads on my email account. I would like to use a different account that I can dedicate to just chat group and forum type stuff.
Is it too late to make any changes?
If that is the case I will block the CNET site from my email account and never use it again.
I have windows 98SE

Are you sure you are unsubscribed from emails? Cnet won't send any ads unless you tell it to, I have been subscribed for quite some time and never got anything from them I didn't ask for. Remember, before laying blame, threatening to BLOCK, (especially if not true or correct info) ask yourself if you actually took more than a second or two to look at your options. You didn't happen to see manage newsletters in your bio\profile page upper right corner? hmmmmmmm? Not to mention their email has an unsubscribe from at the bottom.

Have a nice day Happy Paul

Slowpoke, Since Everything Is Tied To The Username..

...then you'll need to create a new account which would include a new username and new e-mail address. Watch carefully on which options you select when signing up the next time..By the way, I believe you should be able to "unsubscribe" from those e-mails by selecting that option in the mail message..

When you're ready to eliminate your "old" Slowpoke1 account, please let me know and I'll ask the site admin to eliminate your account.

Hope this helps.
