Hide my email! (6 posts)

    I just realized that my forum profile is my email address. I have the display name as Katie, but my email is all over the place. Is there a way to remove this? Or can someone delete my profile so I can sign up again? Thanks!

    We do not delete accounts here but you could simply drop the account and open a new one using a different email address.

    How do I "drop" the account? There's no option for that in my profile. Do you mean just abandon it? My email is still displayed on old posts. Thx!

    Yes

    My email is still displayed on old posts.

    No. all of your old posts will now display your name as Katie. Any changes you make to your Profile (such as changing the display name) affect all the posts you have over published here.

    I'm sorry, I still don't understand! If you click on "member" underneath my name on the left, the name that appears is my email. So if people see my previous posts and click on "member," the email is still there. I guess when I signed up, I must've used my email as my user name. Does that make sense?

    There is absolutely nothing we can do about the username you used when you registered your account.
