You'd need to talk to an administrator.

At this point, I would honestly just reregister. You only have one other post besides this one under belt. Add in the fact that a quick admin response if one at all is unlikely, and much more a be a positive one, too, making the reregistration option look like even a better choice.

I tried but it won't accept because my e-mail address is registered.

Probably by private message - AFAIK the admins on the board are tempest and Zac. There's no guarantee they'll do anything about it(I think I saw a policy statement on it somewhere, but I don't recall where), but they'd be the only ones who could.

Change your email address to "[email protected]" (ANN does not have a confirmation for email changes).
Log out.
Register with your corrected username.

This will correct the situation.

The admins may help, but they're generally too busy to deal with these issues, so they'll often let these changes fly.

How do I change my e-mail? I can't find the option for it.

How did you come up with Stratum? I was clearly going for Murarts but I must be dyslexic.
