You (Neil) used to be able to make such changes en masse. Is it one-at- 
a-time now?

The email addresses will be changed en masse by Russ Cox,
and replaced by links to User Pages.

So please don't chnage them yourself, that will just
make it harder for Russ.

BTW, there are two (no, 3) kinds of user pages. There
are user pages for registered users, like you and me.
There are also a few user pages for deceased users
which have been created by others. (Like Terry Trotter)

I guess Russ will link to the former type of page if it exists,
and otherwise to the "obit" type if that exists,
and if there is no page at all, then we will need to create one.

Oh yes, there is a third type of user page. For example,
if the User's Page has an accent in the name, like Olivier Gerard,
then his real user page is
User:Olivier Gérard
but if you type
User:Olivier Gerard (with no accent), the OEIS Wiki
isn't clever enough to find the real page.

So in a few cases, I created user pages for people
with accented names that redirect to the real page.

In short, I created User:Olivier Gerard which redirects to User:Olivier Gérard.

Russ, this is something to keep in mind for when you get rid of
the email addresses - there are 3 kinds of User Pages now!
