Account name swap


This is my original account from 2002. I created another in 2006 using the name "mikeboers" (which is the name I would like to use from now on).

Today I finally managed to log back into this one, so I decided to try to use it instead.

I attempted to shift this account to be "mikeboers" instead by using the form at on the "mikeboers" account and changing it to "mikeboers2", and then changing this one ("BoERS") to "mikeboers.

The first change went OK, but I cannot change this one to "mikeboers" now because "Username is already in use".

(My apologies is this is convoluted.)

Can someone help me sort this out?

Thanks a bunch!

Edit: I snipped a request about saving the single post from the other account; I recovered it from my browser cache.

This is my other account with the "2" postfix (although I have no idea who this post will be visible to.)

The form I linked to just worked for me. I guess it just needed more time than I was giving it.

Please feel free to kill the "mikeboers2" account at your leisure.
