Something to consider fixing - Email requirement

Hi

When signing up for an account it is not a requirement to put in an email linked to the account. But I noticed that when attempting to change details about ones account (like profile picture) you cannot save your changes unless you input an email adress.

Thank you.

I made sure Blue sees it, he might be able to change one or the other.

Addition: The email is handy so that I can send invitations to Slack as well.

Thank you and I understand the convenience of having the adresses readily available.

But as someone who doesn't want to put his email adress everywhere he goes on the Internet because it has my real name in it I personally would prefer if it isn't a requirement. Now, at this time, it's not an i convenience really, as I won't be too active here on the forum. So I will refer to my title and choice of words: it's merely “Something to consider”. :)

Ideally I wouldn't have emails being a requirement. On the plus side, they'd only be visible to myself, Blue and Hans, who are the ones with the required access, but I understand not wanting to give it out willy-nilly at least.
