Can I change my user name?
Name changes are handled on a case-by-case basis by Head-Fi's administrators, and are generally reserved for extreme circumstances.
Creating a new account is prohibited and doing so may result in both accounts being banned without warning.
If we do agree to a user name change, there are some limitations. We can only rename accounts to names that follow these rules, there are no exceptions:
While you may have seen some user names created back when Head-Fi used VBulletin which don't follow this rule, the system will not let us rename accounts outside the above rules. We cannot rename or delete old, unused accounts that have the name you want either.
- 4-15 characters
- The name can contain spaces.
- The name must use alphanumeric characters (A-Z, a-z, 0-9) and CANNOT contain punctuation.
- The name must not be in use, nor have been used in the past.
Additionally, you will also have "Formerly known as [your old user name]" added to your profile as a custom title. Please make sure to tell us if there is any reason you don't want either of these things (ie: you created a profile with your real name originally).
Can I delete my account?
If you wish to leave Head-Fi for whatever reason, please reach out to @AxelCloris or @joe via PM.
