    UbuntuForums account problem

    Hello,

    I am a proud Linux user. I currently use elementary OS Jupiter, but my heart is with Ubuntu and I will likely switch back once classic Gnome is implemented in 12.04.

    My problem is with the forums. Since beginning to use Ubuntu in Dec. 2010, I have created, and then deactivated, many accounts here. Some of my past usernames include:

    Code:
    LawrenceLovesLinux
    flaneurism
    analogcolors
    Ecnerwalification
    _f_0_c_u_s_
    t120
    Had I stayed with my original account, LawrenceLovesLinux, I would now have well in excess of 200 posts and probably would have become a fairly well-known member. I can help people - I want to help people - but I keep becoming dissatisfied with my presence on UF. I will say something stupid, or write a post I later regret, or seem immature, or become dissatisfied with my username, or... the list goes on and on. I'll then get my account deactivated, only to come back a few months, or weeks, later. Then the cycle repeats itself.

    I would like to stay here and provide help, to fix the problems I know how to fix, etc. But I seem to be stuck in this cycle. Maybe it's a mental thing, I don't know - but I'm not sure how to fix it. Is there a way to prevent a particular account from being deactivated or deleted, so I can't do this to myself again? I would like THIS account to be deactivated, so I can make one last fresh start, but then I want to be here for the long run. I want to help people!

    I don't know, maybe I'm just a bit insane or something. But there's my thoughts.

    Thanks for listening.

    R3nCi ------- I'll be back!

    I would have to say stick with this account.

    Okay, so I won't have this one deactivated. However, could I get the username changed? This username is one I would prefer to keep private, as I have an email address that is identical to it. Also, is there a way to merge the posts from some of my previous accounts with this account?

    And also, why am I being told I cannot edit my posts?

    We do not allow people to edit posts here in the RC. I will check to see if those names are available.

    Thank you very much! One last question: is there a way to edit the username displayed in the quotes in this thread?

    Thanks again.

    No, we do not edit posts here. I doubt someone is gong to stalk you based on the quotes in this thread.
