Summary: Renaming my account
Original Request:
I decided to rename my account, but only after I already got a new one with the desired username. Fortunately, in the FAQ, you wrote, that I can rename my account as long as the other username is under my control. But how do I do it? The service only gives me "username's already in use' message. No other options.

Or do I have to delete my other account, wait 30 days and then rename my old one?? If yes, is there an option to permanently delete the account, without waiting 30 days for it to be purged?

As explained in the above FAQ in the 'Renaming To Your Other Personal Journal' section, both accounts must have the same validated email address and password for this to work.

The FAQ also contains instructions on how to rename your account once these conditions are satisfied.

Now I see it! But only in the English version of the FAQ. Polish one is quite shorter, without that information. I found it only when I put the entire 'Renaming To Your Other Personal Journal' sentence in the search field.

Thanks for the help.
