    Greetings,

    Apologies if this is in the wrong section, couldn't find anywhere else to put it.

    I'd like to request this account and all info associated with it be terminated.
    Just thought of a better username :p.

    Thanks!

    Your account is very new, so you can always ask a mod to contact an administrator to change the name for you. They usually only change usernames if you have a very good reason to change it, so I do not know if they'll honour the request or if the 15 posts-PM rule applies to PM's sent to mods

    Creating a second account while the first account is still accessible is against the TOS here, so avoid doing that. :)

    Hi again,

    Yes, that job thread I created is also a bit of a 'desperate post', I regret posting it, so I'd kinda want that deleted as well...

    You need to be a paid member to request username change

    You can report your own thread and ask a mod to delete it, if your reason is good, the thread will be deleted

    I've seen worse threads.
    At the very least, OP can also request to have the thread closed.

    I had an account before the one I'm using right now. I contacted a mod and he terminated my previous one for me.

    Moderators and administrators are busy, so it'll probably be a while before they even saw a PM from any of us.

    They'll see your thread eventually, but why not just keep the account? Your username is fine and your other thread can just be closed or deleted.

    I need to use this email for another account. From my experience of running forums, I believe it can be deleted. (Could supposedly vary between forum software.)

    You just registered and noone knows you. If I was you I'd go to "my settings" and swap out your current email for a throwaway. Then register a new account with your current email. Afterwards come back and pm a mod that you switched accounts. They'll ban your current one.
