    I registered an old user on this forum and registered my "main" email to that account since iv made my Terenigma account (the one i use mostly) and i want to change my email on this new account to my main email account but i cant due to the fact the other user has it registered to that and i cant seem to work out how to delete my other account

    Could someone explain to me in easy to follow steps how i delete my account or direct me to a post that has the instructions i apolagise if the answer is somewhere already on this forum i did try searching and checking on my account settings but fustration in wanting to do it quickly has stopped me thoroughly looking

    Thanks in advance x

    As far as I'm aware an admin/moderator is the only person who can delete an account. Could you just not change the email on the other account to something else, that way freeing up the email address you want your account registered to.

    Only Admins can delete user accounts
    and probably the supervisors as well (since they have some Admin powers)
    Normal (and Global) Moderators can't do this

    But yeah, try changing the e-mail of the old account
    edit: never mind that [​IMG]

    Although you should probably tell an Admin anyway, since you're only allowed to have 1 account.
