i accidentally made two user names and now I cannot have the one that has my registration on it to send to the right email because the other User name has that email. How do I delete one of my user names?

You can't delete accounts. But you can change the email address on the other account first (just change it to something non-existant). This will allow you to change the address for your current account.

Even though you can't delete accounts, can you get your username changed?

There is a PHPBB plugin that allows you to, and I think it would be great to allow changes for typo-like things. My username is fine, but I know people who wished they had capitalized a letter here and there, I think sidewinder mentioned that once. You can't do it through the plugin, but an admin can.

Sorry, our system doesn't support username changes (we don't actually use the phpBB login stuff). I'm not sure username changes are a good idea anyway, it's hard to keep track of whos who if they're changing their name every few days. But we do get quite a few people asking, so it's something I'll consider when we rewrite the system.

Malone, maybe only allow name changes regulated by the adminastrator (you) and just allow them to change the spelling, capitalization, and cut off numbers so then people will still know who they are.

I want a new name, I hate the fact that the name of my company is my name on FXHome...
But I understand your point Malone...
