    Don't bother PMing him. He's Greg, but he gets so many PMs and have so much to do it's unlikely that he'll see your PM. Instead post it in this forum, unless it's something personal.

    The 'Staff' button on the top bar lists all the admin, mentors, HH's and SA's.

    Really? I don't know how you arrived at that.

    Yes, it looks like, that the Admins don't have time. I wrote some pn's but without response. This isn't bad because with 110681 members, it is okay if a admin hasn't got much time in a forum :)

    So I write it here and hope, that a Admin will read it, or a moderator will contact an admin.

    Could cou delete this account "Theoretiker" please?
    I created a new one and so, I don't need this anymore.

    I did this, because I will upgrade the profile and if I pay for a forum, I want another name, because it would be nice, if I use the same username, in all forums I am active,

    Thanks

    all the best
    Theoretiker

    Actually, I think it is possible for an admin to change the name of an existing account, so you don't have to create a new one. But only Greg or chroot can do it.

    but the new account already exist, so it should not be possible to change the name, because this one is setted :)

    Thats why deleting of "Theoretiker" would be the best solution.

    greetings

    We don't normally delete accounts because threads you've posted in would cease to make sense. You should have really paid more attention to the rules before you went and made another account. Users are only allowed one account.

    Just a side question, how do you tell if a user's account has been deleted? Would all his posts/threads vanish?

    As others have said, as a rule we don't delete accounts. The issue has been flagged up with the staff, and I'm sure Greg will contact you to advise.

    As above, we don't delete accounts very often. Sometimes accounts are closed, which means that a member's posts remain but their name gets greyed out. The other way of closing an account is to ban them.

    No, in V-Bulletin, if a user was deleted, the posts and threads are kept, but the username will changed to "guest", or it keeps the name, but it exist no profile to the post.

    At cristo:

    Well, then close, or ban Theoretiker. It ist the same, in some way.

    greetings

    I started a thread on this last night in one of the staff forums.

    Firstly, it is against Physics Forums rules

    https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=5374
    to register a second account. This prevents things like good cop/bad cop, multi-part scams, etc.

    Secondly, if we allowed users to ditch accounts and start new ones, then things like infractions (which you don't have) and posting history would disappear. Because of this, I support changing Theoretiker to Herbststurm, but I don't support deleting Theoretiker and starting afresh with Herbststurm.
