P.S. I just changed my email address at some 40 web pages (20 more to go) and generally the experience was OK.

Perhaps the control panel needs some tweaking. I too just spent 20 minutes searching for the way to change my email address. There's just so much stuff there and the organization isn't too intuitive in my opinion. What about at least combining email settings and change email address? Most people think that email settings is the place to change the address (because they see it first), and when they get there, they already forgot that they didn't look at the couple of last items in the menu - one of which is "change email address" - and move on to click around (and get angry). It would be good to go through the categories and rethink how to name them and which item goes where.
I think that the Board Software dictates where stuff is in the control panel. however, I may be wrong, and if I am, I'm sure that someone will correct me
My feeling and opinion is that if you have used the Board Software for a long time, you get used to the way that stuff is laid out. I am sure that there are ways to edit fields and add fields and things like that, but I am not sure that G2G Admins can change the organization of the control panel buttons even if they wanted to. I believe that stuff like this would require G2G to change board software - and I don't believe that this will happen
I am a member of several forums, G2G being one, that uses the same software (IP Board) - It may just be that you have to poke around in the control panel to figure out where certain controls are. Once you do that and start making changes, you will remember where things are

The only thing more simple would be if the forum could read your mind and do it for you.
