View Full Version : Username disable/merge.

August 12th, 2010, 12:11 AM
Here's what happened. I had no idea this forum even existed. The only way I thought might work to get a name change was to use the "contact us" link at the bottom of each page. I did this twice and received no response what so ever.

Today I finally decided to create this account and put into the signature of this account a link to the other account and visa-verse.

Iowan (http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=65323) saw my signature and was so kind as to PM me with a link to this forum and ask that I request for my old account be disabled.

I was wondering if it would be possible to merge the two accounts so that I maintain my old threads + posts. If that isn't possible I formally request for my old account to be set to "disabled". I'll post from it in a second as "proof" that is it really my old account.

Hmmm....It would seem I can't reply to this thread from that account. Did it get disabled already or is that something to do with this forum in particular.

Can't even edit my first post this sub-forum is on quite the lock-down isn't it.

Here is the topic I had to create with my old account since I could not replay to this thread from it.

Must say I really hate having to spam the forum like this. :/
At least this is my last post in either of these threads until I get a response. haha

Bah. I'm blind and didn't see the sticky. Guess disabling the old account is the only option. Oh well.

What does it all mean for an account to be a "disabled account"?
I'm sure there is a link somewhere but my eyes are failing me atm and google hates me this week (completely irreverent search results).

We do not delete accounts as doing so can cause problems with the database.

Same with merging accounts.

So I disabled your old account. Disabled means you can not use it and your personal information was removed.

Have fun =)
