Not sure this goes here but will give it a shot....

When I had two computers I had two email addresses so I could log in two avatars and "help" myself through ages like Ahnoyance. (misspelling deliberate :P )

Now I am down to one computer :cry: and have no real need for a second email account. BUT - I want to keep the avvi I've made using it. Is it at all possible to bring an avvi from one email account into another? I did try just "create explorer" in my main account but was told the name was taken...duh.

So - is there a fix for this or will I have to keep an email account I really don't want anymore and switch back and forth between them on the one computer?

Thanks...
Kero

You don't need to keep the actual e-mail account for the account with that e-mail to keep working; it's just your username. But, yes, you'll need to keep the second MOUL account if you want to keep that avatar; there's no way to move them from one account to the other, AFAIK.

Thanks Tai'lahr -

I was afraid that might be the case. Oh well - at least I can close out the actual email account. So there is a silver lining to this. I always thought the game verified you by checking your "username" against the actual account it came from. Learned something "new". :lol:

The game doesn't check that the username/email address is valid when you log in. It is only checked when you either a) create a new account or b) request a password reset, because in both cases you'll get a validation email sent to that address.

What that means is that you can continue to use an existing MOULa account even if you no longer have access to the email account, but you need to make sure you don't lose the password (Cyan can manually reset it for you, but you'll need to be able to show that you're the legitimate owner of the account).
