    Does it take a certain amount of time for the site to catch up when an email address is changed?

    It can take a little time for the mirrors to catch up, yes.

    There are at least 3 different profile screens

    There are? I’ve only ever seen one that is directly associated with these forums. That’s the one that you can access from the top right of any page once you have logged into the forum. The urls is http://wordpress.org/support/profile/your_username

    There is a second, global, profile page that can be accessed via http://profiles.wordpress.org/your_username/ but that does not incorporate an email address field as it pulls some its details from the support profile.

    Does that help?

    Very much so, thanks. I guess I’ll wait another day and see if it lets me change email by then. I’m just feeling impatient to start uploading plugins and want to make sure my account is working right first :p

    As for the profiles, I’ve only ever signed up through the forum here but as well as the two you mentioned above I also have a third profile at https://buddypress.org/community/members/USERNAME/. I had to update the email address on the old account there as it didn’t automatically do it, but I wouldn’t even have known I had a BuddyPress account if I hadn’t clicked a logout link somewhere on wp.org that for some reason redirected me there, because I never purposefully signed up for one.

    I’m sure it’s all very simple when you’re used to it. It’s just weird for people who expect to sign up on one site and have one profile. I’ll live!

    The BuddyPress site is totally independent of wordpress.org

    The BuddyPress site is totally independent of wordpress.org

    And yet signing up here automatically gets you an account there, and logging out from certain pages of WP.org directs you to the login page of BuddyPress.

    If they’re supposed to be separate, it’s not working right 😉

    BuddyPress.org and WordPress.org AND bbpress.org all share a login system (reason #88 why we don’t delete accounts – GAD it gets messed up).

    They should all keep in sync though.

    Sometimes it gets stupid because of the afforementioned shared system :/

    Do you still need your emails fixed? Email forum-password-resets@wordpress.org with the accounts you want to change, and what to, and we may be able to sort it out.

    It is still misbehaving so I’ll email that address now. Thanks.

    After seeing the system in action today, I have every sympathy for this 😀
