My Display Name RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'd like to remove the "[MVP]" from my display name since the forums now add it, making it redundant, but I can't because my name without that tag is already taken.  I'm pretty sure that I'm the one who created that other account a long time ago, but I can't find it.  How can I get that account deleted so that I can change my display name?  It shows as having just one post in 2006 and the post doesn't appear to even be accessible anymore.  Thanks!

  • HI Ed Crowley !

    I think you need to submit your request at Microsoft at below link;

    https://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/mailform/contactus.aspx?refurl=http%3a%2f%2fsocial.msdn.microsoft.com%2fForums%2fen-US%2fProfile%2fthread%2fddfb2508-3a9e-4f12-abab-e55e21d42086

    Note : Here is a similar thread http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/Profile/thread/c687fb5f-cf7d-4b7d-b59d-41b7112f4308 with same issue.

    You can't merge 2 accounts but i think you can change your Windows Live ID Associated with your profile. I am sure Sean will further help you in this.

    Please let me know if this doesn’t work for you. Hope I have answered you correctly.

    Thanks,
    Hasham
