    Signed up for BHW with username I shouldn't have, years ago, just to lurk..

    Contacted support about getting username changed for privacy reason:
    Can't change my username unless I pay (for something I rarely use)..
    Can't have account deleted by support, only banned (which does not solve username issue, not sure why it was even suggested)...


    So.. Yeah...
    Perhaps give users the ability to have their username changed AND account perma-banned, for privacy reasons..

    I'm quite shocked that this isn't an option, and am very irritated with the hoops I'm having to jump through thanks to "support" and Curtis...

    So, whose fault is it that you signed up with a user name you shouldn't have?

    When I first signed up to BHW it was to lurk, and mainly find "hard-to-find" downloads... so I used my general online handle without much thought - [usernameremoved]..

    Now, I have a lot more going on and probably shouldn't have my [usernameremoved] name connected to BHW.. Rather than delete and start new, is there any way you can change my username in the forum's database to Kargoth or Friction, whichever is available??

    I'd really appreciate it.

    Okay then. Since I can't find it anywhere in my User CP, can you please
    give me a link to delete my 4 year old BHW account named
    "[usernameremoved]", or can you just delete it for me? Thanks.

    -John

    Curtis replied:
    All we can do is ban it?

    Cheers

    Actually, I used this name here loooong before i ever used it anywhere else.. so to clarify, technically my mistake was to use this name in other places after first using it here. :p

    People do mistake, maybe the op created the account with the username mistakenly. Later when he understood, he should get a chance to change it, at least he should get a chance to undo his mistake - this is my opinion.
