Why it is important to supply and confirm your email address?

  • You will be able to reset your password if you forget it,
  • You will be able to receive automatic notifications of certain events, if set in your preferences,
  • You will be able to receive emails from other users if so set in your preferences (the user who emails you will not know your email address),
