Error in Profile editor on Haiku website

When submitting the form, having changed something other than the email address, an error message tells me the email address is already taken. Well, duh! :)

So it looks like I'm blocked from changing profile settings unless I switch to another email address temporarily.

Having switched email address, it seems I can't switch back to the old one, it still being "in use". I can, however, now change settings repeatedly with the new address.

Perhaps it's because the old address (at is also (I believe) linked to my account on Trac, whereas the new one (at is not?

I checked the DB and you have two accounts (kirilla and jonas.kirilla) which both had used the same email address. That caused the error message. You can fix the issue by deleting the old account (kirilla?). Just go to your user profile, edit it, and click on the "delete" button. Please tell me if it solves the problem, so I can close this ticket.

I can't find a Delete button. I've looked at the profile pages, used the sitewide search function, used Firefox's search on the relevant pages...

Feel free to delete the 'kirilla' account manually, if you like.

(I'm sorry if this looks like a "user error". FWIW, I don't recall creating two accounts for the CMS, but I could be wrong.)

Done. The "Delete" button should be next to the "Submit" button when editing your user profile, but it might as well not exist for non-admin users...

Also, this is not a "user error". I think it has something to do with the migration from phpBB to Drupal.

Please check if it work, now.

I could edit the account without problems now, and the other account looks gone. Thank you!
