I was earlier registered as Kav Bop. But, because of the restrictions regarding names, now i have registered myself as Kavita Bopardikar. Is there any way to unregister my earlier id ? I am unable to find the option anywhere.
Kindly help.

As far as I know, unregistering can only be done by one of the administrators ("sherrifs"). Except that at this moment, I can't seem to do it either because there's an odd bug in the system (wasn't there on Friday; I'm sure it will go away soon). But it really doesn't matter - there's really no need to unregister the old account name; just don't post new messages using it. We might eventually need to somehow purge a lot of no-longer-used addresses to save space, but it isn't an issue now, and we aren't expecting people to notify administrators so we can delete their old accounts - pretending for a moment that there was no bug preventing that right now, it would still be a lot of unnecessary work for us. But thanks for going to the trouble of changing your username - it's much appreciated.

Thank You very much for your Reply Jim.
This is certainly a very good site for java stuff.
Thanks once again!
