Rename Launchpad Alias

Asked by Iain Buclaw on 2010-01-15

Hi,

I would like to rename my Launchpad Alias to ibuclaw or iainbuclaw.
I've somewhat grown out of my current one, and the two ppas I have attached to my profile are preventing a rename (there is no, or no obvious way to remove/delete them).

Regards
Iain

sorry, but this is at present not possible, see https://answers.edge.launchpad.net/launchpad/+faq/661

Hmm, I could probably deal with that then for the time being.

My only gripe for the time being then is that the @ubuntu email address can't be changed (this, I would prefer to be <email address hidden>). There seems to be a contact on the wikipage, so I may ask a question there about it first before replying back here.

If you're okay with us disabling/deleting your PPAs we can do the rename - just let us know which name you want (as you may have guessed, would be good to get the name change right so we don't have to do it again).

Last comment should have been a request for information.

Iain Buclaw (ibuclaw) said : #5

That is all OK Tom, I've made all backups needed my end.

And if you can, change it to:
ibuclaw

That would be very grateful.

Ok, this has now been done.

Thanks, Tom

Iain Buclaw (ibuclaw) said : #7

Have just checked, all looks OK. I was also surprised that my PPAs are still there too (thought they were going to be deactivated/removed).

Thank you very much Tom.
