So I randomly remembered the password for the account I had years ago. Back when I really had no idea what I was talking about :oops:

Anyway, I'm wondering if someone with a more administrative role can change the username of this account to "Caleb" and then delete the more recent account I have under that same username.

There's not really any valid reason... But why have a profile that says joined 2015 when you can have profile that says joined 2008 ;)

^Yes I know... That would be me :)

Basically I had an old account, when I got on last year to do a Cog announcement I had forgotten the password, plus the email it was originally under had been deleted, so instead of messing with it I just made a new account. Then I randomly remembered the password.

Anyway I'm hoping someone can fix my split personality problem ;)

So IIRC, I do believe I can delete your newer account and rename the old one Caleb. But I'd have to delete the old one first. Let me go check that out now.

Edit: So I can delete your old account and retain the posts, or I can wipe both your posts and your username. Which would you like? Be aware this is a final decision once I hit the button and cannot be reversed.

By wipe posts, do you mean that they would be removed from the forum?

Or do you mean that they would not show up in my account history but would still be on the forum?

Basically what I'm wanting is to: keep posts on the forum (at least the more recent ones), use an account with the username of Caleb, and just for kicks use the older account with the 2008 join date. Cause it makes me that much more venerable and respectable :ugeek:

Perhaps you could first change the username of the newer account to something else, then change the username of the older account to Caleb, and then delete neither if that would erase posts. And then I would just move forward with using the older account.

If it's a problem then don't worry about it, it's not like it matters at all.

^What he said. I know him very well, he's very smart.

So I was tempted to swap in and out of accounts and do a gollum/smeagol impersonation, but I decided to spare you the pain.

Yeah there's a rule on HSD that you can only have one account. XD So sorry no Gollum for you. :P

I can delete your old account but the posts will still show up. They'll be under [deleted user]. Once I do that, I can change your older join date name to "Caleb." Sounds good?
