How can I contact the "members" department directly?


I have been a member for quite some years but my Internet Provider forced me to change my e-mail account and I could not find a way actually make that change to my existing account so I entered a new one. I'd like to let the appropriate folks know that my old account CDaniels, crdaniels@earthlink.net, can be inactivated/removed.

Location: Earth? I would say I hope so but I'm not so sure about that... I could just be a figment of your imagination too.

If your talking about an LQ account, if it's got posts attached to it (like your new one now has), it can't be deleted. As, the threads you replied to/started would not make sense without your posts there anymore.

Do you mean member of LQ? Probably click on report, and move your thread into https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...nd-feedback-7/. Try to contact moderators.

This is as good a way as any, although Questions and Feedback would be a better forum! You can also use the Contact Us links available on all pages to ask that the login name be changed.

You can also easily change the email associated with your old login, if you want to keep that one:

1. Login to the old account
2. Click My LQ link at top of page
3. Left sidebar (Your Control Panel) >> Settings & Options >> Edit Email & Passwords

Update the email address and click the corresponding submit button, and you are done!

This isn't neccessary. You can update the email address associated with your account at any time, in the MyLQ section.
