Hi,
I wonder what are the implications of changing my email address?

It is safe to change it?

Will I loose any credit or settings? Will my Stats change? Should I have extra care when changing it?

Many thanks
Oliver

The only way to change the email address associated with an account is to use the "change email address" page, accessed from the "account" tab on the website.
Sign in using your old email address, change the address (one of the actions in the "Account Information" section of the page.
Take care to enter both old and new addresses correctly otherwise you could find yourself in limbo land - not a nice place to be.
