Forum users should not be allowed to participate under more than one user ID. This would help prevent forum abuse for the purpose of personal amusement and raise the substantive quality of input for everyone.

I believe that that was the reason for tying our Adobe ID to our e-mail Address.

Where it fails is that people have numerous e-Mail addresses including old ones that are no longer in service.

But you can still log in with a discontinued email provided you know the password and simply change the email. Now if you lose the password you are screwed.

I'm thinking about changing the name to the email account. What do you think Ann? Should I push the button?

DON'T push that button!

If you do that, you lose all your listed software registrations!

No just create another new Account using your current e-mail address. Then swap your Screen names around to tie the one you want to the new account.

As for passwords there's nothing to stop you from using the same one for all your Adobe accounts.

Huh? I have an account that has ALL of my registrations. It allows for changing the ID (which is a name) to the email associated with the account. It is a matter of ticking it off. It is also the one with the screen name I want to use.

Also, if I don't do it the next time I register something it will create yet another ID.

Here is a shot of the screen. I would not be changing the email but just ticking off that box. <br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?picture=1B1Y77Oi48oBUbvT3voniQyC502xD0" /></a> <img alt="Picture hosted by Pixentral" src="http://www.pixentral.com/hosted/1B1Y77Oi48oBUbvT3voniQyC502xD0_thumb.jpg" border="0" />

Well try it and see!

I lost the link to all my old registrations when i did it and only got them back when I changed my current e-mail address back to the now obsolete one that I used when I originally registered those applications.

So I just created yet another Adobe ID; and my latest CS4 registrations show-up only in that Account.

Changing your e-maill address DIS-associates you from your previous Adobe ID

I understand. But I would not be changing the email. It would stay associated. Sigh. I dont know if I want to do it. I have A LOT of registrations and it would take forever to put them all back.

Did you look at the screen shot?

Yes. That was why I added the last line to #6:

>Changing your e-maill address DIS-associates you from your previous Adobe ID

That is exactly what happened to me so i decided to just keep multiple accounts plus a Text doc. saved on my computer containing a list of all the S/Ns of my registered software.

Look again. There is a box that says: "I would like my email address to be my Adobe ID". I would not be changing the email I would simply be getting rid of the name and making the ID the email that is already associated with the account.

As I said: try it and see what happens because Adobe may have changed its behaviour since i tried doing that.

Mine was a slightly different scenario because I was trying to UPDATE my e-mail address.

Adobe has changed things in the user account. You did not used to be able to change the screen name. Now you can. I think they did that specifically because there were too many people who were having issues of screen name with the new forums.

When I wrote one name, one ID, I meant one person, one Adobe ID.

When I register my software with Adobe, I am issued a serial number, and how I am able to use that software is limited by that serial number and the computer on which the software is used.

When I login into my bank or financial account, I can login from more than one email address or ISP, but it is certain that it is the same person logging into the same account each time, because it always occurs from the same computer.

There is no way to do that when people have multiple e-mail accounts and multiple ISP accounts as well.

the problem here is we're being forced to mess with something that's tied to our, let's call them actual assets, our registrations, proof to adobe that we own what we say we own. IT SHOULD NOT BE THIS HARD, IT SHOULD NOT REQUIRE US TO RISK LOSING ACCESS TO OUR REGISTRATIONS!

I think Im going to be sorry I did that. I held on for years letting Adobe have that ID and change it into an email...Oh well. No changing it back now.
