[SOLVED]Change username or delete account

Is there anyway to change your username, and if not is there anyway to delete your own account?

He wants to change or delete his user on this forum not on his machine.

inanisxxii . . . You could ask a mod who has privileges to do that. Not many of those hang out here these days. Mostly it's spam nannies (in purple).
May the FORK be with you!

The only way to do that is contact a forum admin:
HOWTO contact forum moderators/admins
That is the best way to go about doing that. Please do not create a "sock puppet" account.

So now I am a "spam nannie" ? :D
But also, this is not true, there usually is a admin that checks in daily, at different times and performs the tasks , I or a moderators can not do, or are not authorized too do.
However, after you contact a admin, also please be patient, it may take a little while, I suppose that depends on how much time the admin has , when they are here and how many other things need to be done.

Before doing anything, read the Debian documentation:

Its a good thing that users can not delete an account themselves. It would have led to a lot of people changing accounts frequently, for example after they have made a fool of themselves with a username, or misbehaved. We want people to be able to stand for everything that they write here.
