Can anyone tell me how I can change my login name and email address?

Thanks.

I don't think you can change your logon ID. you can change your screen name, password and email address by going here.

Since your logon ID is ONLY used for logging on, there's no real pressing need to change it. Plus the software we use doesn't allow it.


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

Could I not just ask for my login account to be deleted.

Then I could wait a few hours/days and create a new one.

The only reason I ask is that I am trying to synchronize all of my online accounts (for various forums, email, etc).

If I could delete and create a new one it would be much better for me.

Thanks.

you certainly can. I am not sure we ever really delete accounts, but you can certainly abandon one and create a new one. I don't even think you need to wait a few hours.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
