Deleting second (+1) forum account

It seems I'm not alone in making the mistake of registering on the new forum with my general PN email address instead of my dedicated forum address, thereby acquiring an additional name - 4Candles1

I've now used the right address, and recovered my original account, but to save any future confusion, is there any way of deleting 4Candles1 which is now tied to my general PN email address?

Re: Deleting second (+1) forum account

(sorry to 'hijack')

I also had a temporary account (w23_) - can that be deleted please (if it hasn't been already) - I don't seem to be able to log in to it (could just be age/memory, or it could be it's already gone) but I have been receiving vast quantities of notification emails (up until yesterday early evening anyway).  TIA. 

Call me 'w23'

@Chris Before asking you to do the same for my duplicate - what happens to the posts after the account is deleted

Re: Deleting second (+1) forum account

The account becomes 'Anonymous' and the posts stay associated with that account.

 

Right now we won't be deleting many more as hopefully a fix for the duplicate usernames is in the works anyway.
