How do you get rid of old accounts that you don't use anymore?
G'day everybody. :smile: I'm simply wondering if there's anyway to request an old, unused account to be deleted. I've got several different accounts I no longer use anymore, and I'd rather see deleted and forgotten. ;-_-; It's kinda annoying to see them clog up the "Switch accounts" drop-down box when searching for one you're really looking for. And I also happened to register for a couple different accounts (reluctantly) because many of the registered names were cut off or misspelt in some way, and it took me a few different registrations to get the proper name I wanted. :sad: Leaving all the unwanted accounts... uh... unaccounted for. XP I hope you know what I mean.

Is there any way to request a BbAdministrator to delete them, possibly? :ohwell: I'd *really* appreciate seeing all those mouldy-old sock puppets get thrown away. ^_~; Thanks in advance!

Hi Alhadis :smile:

There is no way to delete usernames. You can delete user accounts from your boards memberlist, but names cannot be removed from the network. :smile:

You can remove any of the usernames in your BbUsername Swapping pull down menu by logging into each of the accounts of the usernames you wish to remove and:

Click on "User CP" on any board, then "Edit Settings".

Uncheck the "Enable Swapping" box.

Re: How do you get rid of old accounts that you don't use anymore?
I suppose that'll have to do. Still, knowing they exist within the depths of cyberspace kinda irks me a little. But it's the most that can be done... thanks for your help. :smile: Did you know I registered for several different names; "DaTerminator" "TheTerminator" and "ExTerminator" before I realized that spaces aren't allowed in user names? ;-_-; I guess it didn't help that I'm not really keen on using underscores either. I thought I could cheat the constraint by using a non-breaking space, but that didn't work either. Ah, well.
