Anyway haven't you left the foundation? If so I am surprised the account is still active.

The full context is that I'm continuing to use my account for volunteer purposes, so what I'm trying to do is switch it over to use to preferred email. I'm still unable to do that from the web UI, maybe I just need to wait for changes to propagate though.

Related are T216425 and T216995

The change is immediate, I am confused as to how you managed to drop the email anyway. It is also supposedly fetched from LDAP so I do not quite know how you managed to remove it.

Anyway, can you try heading to hit Reload. That will log you out and ask to login again. Hopefully that would refresh metadata from LDAP and would get your email setup. Else we need to find out how to fix it up :]

Thanks for looking at this. I reloaded and it looks the same. When I try to set preferred email to my personal address and save changes, I get realm does not allow editing name.

Have you tried changing the email address on already?

That was it! Thanks for pointing this out, everything looks correct now.

Out of curiosity, what was the email in your wikitech preferences? Was it empty?
