    I built an account to 50k and switched the username and everything around, but when I search the old username, the account still shows up. But it just shows the new username...What gives? When will this stop? I don't like leaving footprints.

    Bumping for a response from someone else who may have also experienced this, and knows how long it will take to stop allowing my account to be traced through searching my old username.

    So how long do you think it will take for this problem to disappear?

    I've only done it twice and it took 3-4 weeks for me.
