You could try PMing Casualty01 or wahappen, but there's a fair chance they'll say no.

Let it be a lesson to you. You call yourself "greendayguitar" you live with it for life. Life.

I've found this in the help page too:

How do I unregister?
Please contact us (http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/about/contact.htm) with your username and the reason why are you going to unregister. We will sort things out. Don't forget to include your username and email info.

Hope that should help. :cheers:

this is one of the reasons we have the rule ^
there is absolutely no point in changing your name to add a capital letter.

we also need to keep track of people so spammers don't just keep deleting their accounts and making new ones and ruining the forums for everyone.

if people could delete their accounts and start new ones and would make it impossible to ban people without resorting to IP bans and stuff like that, and the forums would be full of spammers, advertisers, flamers etc and no one would be able to discuss anything.

EDIT: Maybe you could ask a Super Moderator or another Admin to change your name, I doubt they'd do it though because this site is huge, and must be quite a load to keep in order.

Ah, I at least, am perfectly happy with my name because I knew what it meant, spelt it right and am not likely to want to change it at any point soon.

it shouldn't be a big deal for the admin to change a name, it takes 3 seconds and I do it for my members all the time.

Yes, but you don't have 64191 members do you?

And all 64000 are going to request a name change at once?

Second of all, a lot of people probably would.

It's true though. UG is a damn jungle! There are so many people, you can't establish any sort of "e-friendship" with anyone. Well, hardly.

If some people get one, everyone will ask, and that would be an unecessary hassle.

On the register page, there should be a line that says "You cannot change your name!".

yes it is possible for the admins to change people's names if they wanted to, although it would take up a bit more time than i'm sure they want to dedicate to UG. but that is beside the point i made earlier. it would make it near impossible to keep track of the spammers/advertisers and UG would turn into a pile of crap in a matter of seconds. not being able to change your name is a small price to pay for keeping the forums relatively clean.

i don't see why it's such a big deal anyway. i chose this name to use on the net when i was about 13 or 14, i'm nearly 20 now and i don't want it anymore. there is something i'd rather change it to, but who give's a rat's ass, it's just a name on a forum.
