Why isn't my post count going up?
As of 4:20PM LQST on 01/29/04 posts made in the General forum will no longer increment your post count. Posts in any other forum will increment your post count.

How do I change my username?
If you'd like to change your username, please use the Contact Us form and let us know what you'd like your new username to be. Due to the size of the LQ user-base, you may want to include multiple choices, in the order you'd prefer them.

How do I delete my LQ account?
We do not remove accounts that have posts associated with them. Setting the two email preferences to "No" means that you will never hear from us again. We will remove accounts that do not have any posts associated with them, and do periodically automatically remove accounts that have no posts and have been inactive for an excessive amount of time. If you have never posted and would like your account removed, please use the Contact Us form and let us know.

How do I mark a thread as solved?
To mark a thread as solved, click "Mark this thread as solved" under the "Thread Tools" menu. Note that you can only mark threads you have started as solved.
