    Username change and desactivation request

    My request is a bit complicated so I'll try to explain the situation carefully. I have an Ubuntu SSO account that I want to close. The account is associated with my username here in this forum, so I'd like to deactivate this user first (AFAIK users in this forum can't be deleted, but only deactivated, right?). The thing is that I don't want my current username here to stay that way after the deactivation, because my username's profile contains personal information (and I can't change or delete that info because I haven't posted enough in the forum). So I'd like my username to be changed first, and the info in my profile to be deleted if possible, and only then I'd like my username to be deactivated. I understand I should provide a new username for the change, but anything that isn't my current username will do, really...

    Many, many thanks in advance.

    Users can't change their usernames.

    I've changed the account username to a random string, deleted personal information and disabled the account.

    Good luck.
