Can I change my user name? Can I delete my account?

Can I change my user name? Yes you can. We can rename your profile. Creating a new account is prohibited.    Your new user name can be anything from 3 to 15 characters, including spaces but not punctuation, that is not in use.   PM Currawong or Joe with the user name you'd like and it will be changed immediately.

Group Buys

November 24, 2014: Since they are now a product reseller and I know we'll get asked about this frequently, discussion and linking to Massdrop's sales is allowed.   In general, group buys and group builds (of DIY products) are not allowed, except for hard-to-obtain DIY parts or special DIY one-offs (such as circuit boards). These still require permission from an admin before they can be approved, however.    Recently a number of people have asked why we don't allow group buys or discussion of groups buys on other sites. While we understand that people wish to buy... read more

Groups Guidelines

The purpose of social groups is to allow members more freedom and control over regular discussion with friends or people who share similar interests. However, while members are free to create groups and manage them as they wish, there are some limitations as to how they can be used, depending on the type.   Quick Guide:   Groups can be created by anyone who can create classifieds, that is members with 15 posts who have been a member more than one month. If you have just made your 15th post the permission wont activate for a couple of hours.   Groups... read more

Beware of the following scams and people abusing the classifieds

If you believe you have been scammed by someone, please report the classified or the first PM message (you only need to report ONE). Click on the red flag bottom left of the post or PM. Please do NOT PM a moderator or administrator. Flagging the post/message sends it to ALL moderators and administrators at the same time. We will then contact you if necessary. You can leave negative feedback on their profile which can be edited or deleted later if necessary. Click on their user name and then "Trader Feedback" and "Leave Feedback" to warn others. If you paid money via... read more

Posting Guidelines

  The internet's truest ever cartoon. The following is a set of posting guidelines for Head-Fi. They are derived from the Steve Hoffman Forums and rules I wrote for another forum and essentially cover what is actually enforced by the moderators. Please also see the Head-Fi Terms of Service, which includes the Privacy Policy.   Head-Fi is a place for the peaceful and collaborative discussion of personal and portable audio equipment and music. We hope to create an environment that is family-friendly, receptive and educational, not rude or judgmental like many other... read more
