uid meaning the user id number cannot be changed without orphaning all your posts. uname on the other hand, can be changed without ANY difficulties. In fact, it use to be standard practice to change the uname of users who got banned for spamming.
Insanity can be defined as "doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results."

Stupidity is not a crime. Therefore, you are free to go.

Nonsense - this can be done easily - I've done it several times when people have asked me - and for spammers.

That's what I figured. Just wanted to clarify so nobody got confused.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too. Sounds like somebody either doesn't *want* to do it, OR (most likely) any authority to do it has been stripped.

Go figure.

Re: @-> XOOPS.org Admin

So is this a possibility? Does anyone at xoops.org have the ability to do anything anymore?

Re: @-> XOOPS.org Admin

If you ask DJ or Christian nicely - they may do it.

The other "moderators" have little any access for most things.
