  • Interests:Obviously, I wasn't born in 1993, but Power Surge was! I created Power Surge in 1993 on AOL and it was formally introduced as an AOL community for women in Feb. 1994. My interests include writing, antiques, computers, the Internet, Web design, new technology. Politics (The West Wing was my all-time favorite show), music, especially jazz. Eclectic tastes. I'm concerned about the protection of our environment and natural resources. My passion -- Power Surge! Used to travel a great deal. Love artsy jewelry, sterling, turtle necks, art and good films. Fascinated with everything Native American/American Southwestern.

A great deal of E.mail is bouncing back to Power Surge because members
have either changed their E.mail address since registering, OR they've registered
using a "free" E.mail address at yahoo.com, hotmail.com, gmail.com, but they
haven't used them and the E.mail addresses have expired. Finally, since E.mail
addresses no longer require validation, those who have registered with either a
misspelled address or an invalid E.mail address creates havoc, especially when they
sign up for E.mail notifications.

This creates extra work for Power Surge especially since many of you have
signed up to receive E.mail notifications of new posts on various topics, for
notifications of a new PM (personal message), notifications of blog comments and
notifications of those asking to be added as a friend in your profile, etc.

A current, valid E.mail addresses is required by every registered member.
Please do the following if you've changed your E.mail address, or if you registered
with an invalid or misspelled E.mail address.

The easiest way to check to see what your current E.mail address is AND
to change your E.mail address if the one listed is no longer in use is to do
the following:

[b]On your personal menu directly above the list of forums, you'll see MY CONTROLS.
This is where you can verify your current E.mail address AND/OR change your E.mail


On the MENU on the left...

Scroll down to OPTIONS


Fill in the form and security code

Click on "Change My Email Address

It's that simple!

The new E.mail address will be recorded in the message board's database and
you will receive the notifications you've signed up for.

Any active registered member with an invalid E.mail address, whether they are
signed up for E.mail notifications or not, will have their account suspended until
their E.mail address is changed to a valid/working one.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
