Hi Anna -
*You* need to *update* your profile on MySQL.com with an appropriate
e-mail address of your own (which you say is sca@stripped) that
you would use regularly to communicate on the forum. (*We cannot do
this update for you.*)
If you have lost your password for your profile and do not know how to
reset it or rest your e-mail address properly, you may have to
re-register and create a *new* profile for yourself. (I know the
e-mail you associated with your old profile was the one you used at
Sun|MySQL to which you no longer have access.)
(All this means that you may have to re-register on the forum because
your old profile used your Sun|MySQL e-mail address, and I'm not sure
how password resetting works on the forum given that you no longer
have access to that e-mail.)
You can do this update/renewal/recreation of your registered profile
on the forge.mysql.com or on any other forum belonging to MySQL.com.
It is an understood ***requirement*** for contributors on mysql.com
forums to have an updated and valid profile and with a valid e-mail
address of their own.
Please comply to this requirement ASAP.
Finally, and again, this is not about our informing Liz or anyone
else. It is about *your* updating/renewing your registered (mysql.com
... forge/mysql/bugs db) profile and confirming that you've done so.
Please update/renew/recreate (whichever applies) your registered
profile ASAP and let us know that you have done so as soon as you do
