I've recently installed Ubuntu because in 9.04 they included support for my wireless driver! Expect to see me comment more often in these forums.

I didn't think we were allowed to have multiple accounts. Am I mistaken?

Yes. That is fine. I saw a quote recently from a staff member that said "We will not change your username. But you can make another account and ask us to disable the other one" or something like that.

Found!



Can I change my username?

No. Usernames can not be changed - dashes can not be added, lowercase cannot be made uppercase, etc. However, you may choose to create a new account and then request that we disable the original one. The only exceptions to this are extreme cases, such as when a user has been harassed by another user or when the username contains the member's email address or real name.

Note: If you do make a new account, you will have to transfer all information yourself, as we will not do this for you. Also, we can't transfer your statistics (beans, account age and the like) to the new account.

Will you delete my account for me?

We are sorry to say that account deletions are no longer possible. If you wish for your account to become inactive we recommend you contact an administrator who can remove your email address from the account and change the password to make the account permanently inaccessible. Account deletions that have occurred in the past have made all of those users' posts belong to "unknown" and have made it impossible to track issues. There will be no exceptions to this policy.


They just won't delete your old account.

Keep the name, it gives the impression that you are a former Vista user who converted to Linux...and that is a good thing...

Yes, I really wish to change my username. It's kind of old considering Windows 7 is much newer than Vista. :/
