Changing the name of an old account? [Resolved]

Hi! I recently picked up playing go after a 9~ year hiatus; I played a lot in high school with my friends, but once I started college I fell out of it. Recently, however, I reconnected with my old friend and joined a local go club, and made an account here to practice and play games in my free time. The name I usually use on MOST websites is ‘pitchflare’, but on attempting to use that name I learned that it’s already in use - unsurprisingly, by a user account that has been inactive for 9~ years. I don’t remember the password, and the email that I used at the time is no longer accessible.
I read in another topic that deleting accounts is not possible, but would it be possible to change that account’s name so I could use my normal username on this current account?

I can swap the names over for you. Do you want capital or lowercase p on this acct?

Welcome back by the way :slightly_smiling_face:

I went with lowercase since that’s what you stated above but happy to change it any time if you want


FYI, I believe account deletion is possible (recent change) although I haven’t tried it. But you’d need to log in first to do so.

Yeah that’s true but as you said he’d need to login and he doesn’t know his PW, either way the name for that old acct. has been reset now.
