Change login name and deleting posts
« on: February 09, 2013, 02:34:32 pm »
Is there a way to change the login name I use? I can change the username displayed, but I'd like to change the login name too. Also, can anyone see the login name I use?

Edit: I have another question, I want to delete my old posts or edit them but it won't let me.

Your login name is permanent, but you can change your display name. That's just how it goes :/

Unfortunately, you cannotedit old posts.  I forgot the cutoff time, but once it gets old, you can't delete old posts sorry :< 
Same can be said for deleting posts too.  You cannot delete posts at all.  Only staff can delete posts.  You can request for it to be deleted and if you provide a good enough reason, we'll consider it :>

The cutoff time is four days, but if there's something you desperately want edited out of an old post (say, personal information or something) you can ask a board moderator and they'll do it for you. You can't just delete posts because you don't want them up anymore, though.
You can change the name that's visible on the forum, but your account's name is permanent.
Hope that helps :P
