Probably should have mentioned this in my progarchives post. Just wanna start over. Re-written a lot of old reviews etc, and wanna change my name too. Just probably easier to stand anew.

I did make a few contributions to the archive. Will they still be there? Not a big deal if they're not, just kinda curious.

Cheers!

Yes and no.

Yes, because it can be done, technically. No, because the site isn't built in such a way to make doing such a thing easy. Deactivating you won't remove your reviews and history says that outright deleting you would throw off the site's review/rating counts on any album you've rated/reviewed, requiring a full resync which can only be done by a webmaster. We would have to manually delete your ratings/reviews one by one, which as I'm sure you understand is a pretty draining task (you have 142 which isn't as large as some members but it's still a lot since we can't just effectively flip a switch to do it). 

It's actually easier (for us anyway) for you to re-post your new reviews in place of the old ones as you go, either by editing them or deleting them and re-posting anew (recommended if you want them to appear on the Frontpage).

I can change your user name though, if you wish, just post what you want here or send me a PM.

You can edit your old reviews, and even delete them yourself from your profile on the frontpage.

PM an admin and they will change your username for you
