Your ProBoards Global Account
Your first experience at ProBoards whether you create a forum for yourself or join another member’s forum, you initially create a Global Account when you register.
All in One Place Generally as a member you have only one Global Account which is essentially your speed pass to all your forums and accounts. When you log in to ProBoards.com you are logging in to your global account and have access to:
Your Account Settings (for the Global Account)
Your Forum Accounts
Any Subscriptions/Transactions (ad-free plans, storage plans, etc.)
Dashboard - listing of all forums (with username and display name) that you are a member
The Dashboard not only allows you to navigate to a joined forum, but also offers a status overview of new messages, notifications, participation, and bookmarks from all your joined forums at a quick glance.
Access - Email is Key Your Global Account email address is the key to your forums. This is what uniquely identifies you in your Global Account and is the method of verification. It is extremely important you keep your email address listed in your Global Account up to date.
Access to your forum is your responsibility. ProBoards does not have access to member passwords. If you forget your password, log in at the ProBoards.com page and use the Forgot Password option. This resets the password for your Global Account.
If you delete your forum and want it restored; or any related issue, you start by creating a post in the Support Forum, however to verify you are the admin/owner of the forum Proboards will send an email to the address listed in your Global Account settings requiring you to reply with requested information to confirm your ownership. If you no longer have access to the email address listed, there is no other way we have for verification.
