    Account help

    I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum. I didn't know where to post this. Anyway, when I registered on Ubuntu Forums I typed my username incorrectly. I meant to say cela0811, which is the username I use on almost every other website.

    Is there any way an administrator or moderator could delete this account so I can re-register?

    Thanks.

    You've made one post (the one in this thread), simply create a new account, easy

    I'm trying PHP, so my code can probably be labelled "bad and insecure"

    Can you create a new account with your real username? There may be an email check that won't let you, but you could then create a google account for it and have google forward your email from that account to your real account.

    A kluge, I know, but it might work.

    I thought of those. I guess I'll just do that. I wanted to use my normal email, but oh well. Thanks.

    You can try putting the same post in the following forum (Resolution Centre), that seems to be where name changes are done
    And welcome to UbuntuForums!

    Looks like the problem has been remedied, but I'll move the thread to the RC for any final details... like disabling the original account.

    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
