    We set up our forum registration to reject usernames that will be incompatible with the upcoming new chat, but there was a problem. Some invalid usernames got through. We've fixed this, and such usernames cannot be registered anymore. However, if you've already registered, you'll need to be fixed. According to my user list, that's about 30 people.

    If your username begins with a symbol, a number, a punctuation mark -- anything that is not a letter from A to Z -- you are affected. I need to DELETE your forum account so that you can re-register a compatible username.

    I WON'T DO THIS TO YOUR ACCOUNT UNTIL YOU ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR UNDERSTANDING. This won't just be handled invisibly in the background and then everything is OK without you having to interact with this process. I can't just rename you, because then how will you know what your new username is? We have to work together on this one.

    HERE'S WHAT TO DO:
    1. Post "delete me" in this thread.
    2. I will delete your forum account and your post.
    3. When you next come back, you won't be able to log in with your old username. That's how you will know I've done my part of the process.
    4. Register a new forum account, confirm your email address, and begin chatting with your NEW username and password.
    5. If you need credits transferred from your old username to your new one, follow instructions at the following thread: https://www.freechatnow.com/forum/threads/so-you-had-to-pick-a-new-username.33/

    If your username does NOT begin with a number, symbol, or punctuation, don't even post here.

    By the way, if your username is perfectly fine as it is, I'm probably not going to change it because I don't like wasting my time.
