Forum registration error

Postby N1V2GU » Sun Mar 19, 2017 5:45 pm

I had a lapse in foresight while registering on the FlightGear Forum. The Username chosen was erroneous and, I would like to change it. I tried emailing the Board Moderator but it bounced back as an inactive address. I tried re-registering, supplying the Username that I desire, but I got tossed out by a “Duplicate email address” restriction. While poking around on the Board, I saw comment that it was not possible to just change an existing Username.

So …….
Can someone with credentials delete this Username, so that I can try again?
It would be much appreciated and, I promise to be more attentive.

Thank you - Jan

Hi Jan,

if you can let me know what user name you'd like to have I can change yours ;-) (users cannot do this and we normally don't do it, but there can be exceptions)

Cheers,

That very likely means that the particular IP address was used by a spammer at some point. No worries, IP addresses usually change over time.
