FLYER Website Changes

We’ll be relaunching the way that FLYER works and making it much more accessible, as well as giving you an easier experience with things like a ‘single sign on’ that will cover the Club, Forum and flyer.co.uk. That means no more remembering numerous email and password combinations!

As part of that we need to align the email addresses that you may have across the current Forum and FLYER Club sites. Many hundreds of Club members already use the same email address across both, but for the rest, we need your help. You will fall into one of two categories:

- You have a FLYER Club account but no FLYER Forum account.

- You have a FLYER Club account and a FLYER Forum account with a different email address.

If you are in category 1, you don’t need to do anything. Your Club account will become your main FLYER account next year. If you are in category 2, please follow these instructions.

How do you change your email address?

The easiest place to do so is in the Forum itself. First of all, get yourself on forums.flyer.co.uk and login. Next, click your profile icon at the top right, followed by the Control Panel button.

When in your user control panel, click ‘Profile’ then find ‘Edit Account Settings’ on the left hand side. You should then see your registered email address. Please change that email address to the one that matches your FLYER Club account.

We hope that all makes sense. If you have any questions please do let us know.

Hi Jonny, I have one!
Somehow I have a Forum password that is different to the Club password. Both are on the same e-mail address.
What would you like me to do to align them?

Does/will having a pseudonym on the forum and a real name as a club member, both linked to same e-mail and with same password, cause issues or result in real name being disclosed on forum?

Hi Uncle

Not sure what you mean by issues, but real names will not appear on the forum (unless you choose to change your username, but that's just as it is right now).

Hope that helps

Thanks

Ian

Thanks. In the context of this thread, by "issues" I was referring to whether "single sign on" will work if a person has different user names on forum and club.

Signing in will need email and password, so we need for forum members and club members to be using the same email for that to work. Forum usernames will not change.

Thanks
