I would also like to delete both my accounts (forum and website). Is it possible?

Echoing several posters above I also wish my account on here & the main site to be deleted.

I note it can be done (on here) as several user names are shown as deleted or removed on Page 2 of this very thread.

I have to assume it is something you can also do on the main site also in order to comply with GDPR regulations...

Please delete my account on both sites and any info you hold on me.

Could you please delete my account? It's based on an email account that I don't want to use on websites anymore.

This is the email: mi*******[email protected] (I've masked some of the letters for privacy. I can PM the full email if you need.)

P.S. Please don't delete my forum account. They both have the same username, "eddman".

Changing a Username

Postby epicc » Tue Jun 25, 2019 2:05 pm

My account on the main site has a username that I don't want and I can't find a way to change it.
If there's anyone who could help or that I could contact, please let me know.

The ability to change usernames is coming in the new site, which should be out in a couple of weeks :)

Dear Mods,

many people - including myself - asked for username change or account removal in the past you even read this? I'm sure all of us have read the earlier posts in this thread (page 1), so we all do know it is actually possible. So why is there not a single response from you regarding our requests?

Any info on that would be really nice. Thanks in advance.

I've been moving and merging threads to this one to facilitate management, but I personally have no power over site account deletion (only forum, and doing that first would be counterproductive), so I apologize. I thought this was being taken care of. I'll attempt to bring in an admin's help.

For those requesting username changes (including those with visible e-mail names), a function to change usernames should become available on the new site version.

Mistywing is correct... I'm adding that functionality today, in fact. If anyone doesn't want to wait about a week to have their account deleted, please PM me your email address and I'll do it manually.

How can I change my username from shaxnel2162r to shaxnel ?
Can somebody do it for me, because I have no clue how.
