Default Help with account name...

So I tried to change my profile name to "J" but it didn't work because the name was already taken. So I looked this member up and found out he only posted 2 times and hasn't been online for almost 2 years.

If it wouldn't be to much trouble, could an admin (or someone who has the the power to delete accounts) delete this account?

I appreciate any help you could offer.

I don't think we should just go around deleting peoples accounts, no matter how long its been. Try doing a space before the J, or something.

Or you could do something like [J] or {J}.

The account shouldn't really be deleted unless it's for something serious.

You could just use:
-J-
=J=
Or just mess around with some symbols .

Hi - the two wise men above me have made a good point, account deletion is a serious thing, handled only by the most wise and intelligent Admins.

See what FT says - he'll most likely drop by, but I wouldn't count on it. The best thing would be a [J] or some variation.

Oh, and I'll move this to Comments - you'll get a better response


And make that the three wise men - Shadow just ninja'd me

Sorry, however we don't delete any member's accounts - inactive or otherwise.

These members may still login to their accounts again some day.

It is true that the "J" account is two years old, although I don't think deleting the account would be inappropriate (if the old member comes back, for instance).

What I can do is change your username to your current display name (to "-J-" or something similar) so you can just type in "-J-" when you go to log in if that's a worthwhile compromise.

Plus we're nearly at 10000 members, which will be awesome when we hit it... if we only counted active members we'd have a membership of about 37 :P

Well, a much simpler solution would just be to change the nickname of the inactive account?

Logging in won't be an issue because you use your username for logins (which is already checked for uniqueness when you register), so no clashes there.

Damn. Mace is always here to give us the smart, simple, completely logical solution - can't you give bad advice for once?!
