    I would delete my account, then start over... probably your best shot, rather than waiting for a way to fix/change the issue.

    How does one delete one's account, by the way?

    Hmmm, this does seem problematic.  There should be a way to delete one's own account or otherwise remove oneself from the site.

    Actually, from what I understand, deleting an account is not easy although it is easier if you haven't really posted anything or started any projects (remember Corjay?).  In any case I'd recommend the OP just create a new account (unless it won't allow him to because the e-mail is already in use) and then when Bill or Larry see this they can clean up the old one.

    What username do you want?
    I will make the change -- it's an administrative funtion.

    My understanding in re Corey's original account was that Bill didn't delete it, he just disabled it.

    If you would, please, Larry, could you change my username to, maybe, Will the Stampede.

    Or, simply Will the Second, if the above is too controversial.

    Either way, thanks in advance.

    What happened to the quote that inspired my last post?

    BTW, Larry, thanks for the name change.

    I like the new name
    I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!
