name change

Post by Oscar Hernández » November 14 2018

Dear Management,
Somehow the spelling of my name has been changed. I registered as "Oscar Hernández" with an accent of the "a" of my last name. This was fine for a while but more recently it now appears as "Oscar Hernández". How can I change it back? If the accent over the "a" is a problem I can forgo using it.
Thanks,
Oscar

It probably got mangled when the site was upgraded a few months ago. However there already seems to exist a separate account with the correct accent (made on 30th Oct).

Yes, that was me who created that account since I at first thought my account was no longer there. I do not want to lose the history of my first account. Can the Oct 30 account be deleted and my original account have the spelling corrected?
