    Timothy, what is the incentive for them to give you their email address? What will they gain if they do? Change only occurs to gain something through self-centeredness or to avoid pain. Dangle a carrot while beating them with a stick.

    Come up with a feature that requires email.

    On the normal signup page an email has to be given and it works nicely with emails.

    BUT with the facebook conect plugin it obviously does not give the users email. So the fbc plugin cannot require email as it would break

    SO i want to have a feature that prompts them to update there email to stay conected.

    I dont know how to make this so some help would be great

    on our site, we created a simple php script that gets the users email, if the email contains “proxy-XXX” it gives them a javascript popup telling them to update their information, when they click “ok” they are redirected to the Settings> General> to change their email

    like Burt said, we’ve created a feature that requires an accurate email, so we use this script in a certain section of our site. When a user visits that page, they get the popup.

    we’re also contemplating making a custom redirect for facebook sign-ups (not logins) that will take them to a page explaining the difference between a facebook user account and a regular user account. (i.e. sign in the same way you registered, update your email here, fill in your profile there… etc)

    if you want, I can share the php we made to accomplish this.
