    Don't worry.  I like the forum and would like to continue to be a member of this community.  However, I joined a little too late last night and mis-typed my user name...the one thing that I cannot just change.  My solution would be to simply delete my account and re-enroll with a correctly spelled user name.  However, I have yet to figure our how to do so.  Help is appreciated.

    Good question. One of the moderators will be along to let you know. Welcome to ChefTalk, by the way. 

    Of course, you could just leave it misspelled. It works either way.

    I thought about leaving it as is...but it will drive me crazy every time that I log in.  It is a standard user name for me and deliberately misspelling it requires me to go against muscle memory.  Never mind that fact that I am annoyingly anal about things like that (maybe not the best character trait to lead with for a first impression).  It's like a stereogram; once you have discerned the hidden image, you cannot seem to un-see it.  I know I have a problem, but hope you will tolerate me anyway /img/vbsmilies/smilies/wink.gif

    I can change your user name for you. Just tell me what you want it to be.

    lol well its not about usernames in here, (there have been some really stranges ones) no one really cares. Its all about information exchange.
    As to your name, I interpret it as makie (or maka) mine irish. Kinda catchy IMO.
    Look at mine....a gross mispelling of a classic french cooking term.lol

    Awesome/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bounce.gif   I just need to drop the extra "e" at the end of make, so that it reads "makemineirish".  I read that three times to make sure I did not screw up a second time.

    Any idea how to change it or delete my account? My names a bit too personal and don’t want people to be able to search my actual name haha

    Matt ... it's most likely a waste of time asking for any "name" changes. I've tried for a while.
    You can just forget asking to have your name capitalized.
