Probably just the person responsible hasn't been around. Certainly doesn't come to the mods, so it's either an admin thing (in which case it might take a few days) or an owner thing (in which case it might take longer still).

Basically, I wouldn't hold your breath!

Is it true that if you change your user name you cant get your original name back if you wanted to change back ?

Dunno!

I seem to remember that Ian got fed up of changing names back and forward, so said he would only do it once per member. Don't know the current situation though.

The reason is because I haven't logged in since Friday.

Please remember that AO staff are volunteers so you will need to be patient with requests such as this.

If it's true you could always self delete


It seems to have worked for others :EVIL:




However despite their new accounts, their past has not been forgotten
