Can I change the username I registered to FAC with?

Answer: No, your username is referenced in many places internally and cannot be easily changed. Furthermore, as we identify each person by their username, being able to easily change it could end up causing more confusion about which name is whom than it actually helps the individual who changed names.

If you are no longer satisfied with the username you registered with and wish to change it, you may request an account deletion (see our Contact Us page for details) and, once the deletion has been processed, register on FAC all over again with the username you want. IMPORTANT: This, of course, means that you will lose all pictures, stories, forum postings, comments, etc. that you posted under your old name.

Finally, please note that your username should not be confused with either of the following:
- User Title - A small phrase (such as "Baby, New member, Member," or so on) that appears underneath your username and avatar when posting on the forums. This changes automatically as your post count increases.
- Real / Alternate Name - This is displayed in parentheses next to your username on every forum post you make -- forum PM's (private messages) are also identified by this name. You can change this by using the "Edit Profile" link from the FAC main page.

It's a long shot, but you could send another e-mail to FAC asking them to ignore the removal request.

I know this is kind of off topic, but I've been wondering how we can change our User Title. Do we need to get a Mod/Admin to do it?

Actually, that question's been asked quite a lot. Creating FAQ topic....

No, they don't delete the posts. You yourself will just start out as a baby again. I've seen lots of posts by "past members'.

I want to change my username, but I'm not sure of the steps. And do I have to let you know that I've changed my username?
Do you lose anything besides your pictures and stories?
What do you keep when you change your username?

I don't need to change my username; I would simply like to delete my account from existing, mainly because it has been 3 months since I signed up, and still no validation e-mail. I was thinking I could get rid of it permanantly and then get a new account under another e-mail address. How do I delete my account?

But first, refer to the FAQ topic about the validation e-mail.

Review page 1 of that FAQ topic. It has been updated rather recently.

Just a question: I had my old account deleted successfully, and I made a new one. ( This one) But then I got an e-mail saying I could only have one account, even though I only have one! Is this just a little bug?

Check your old account's profile page. If it includes a message saying that the account has been deleted, then you have nothing to worry about, so try again.
