Why not just create a new account? The loss of your posting record is hardly a big deal.

At least, I judge the credibility and trustworthiness of the users based on their number of stars and join-date. It indicates a lot of things.


P.S. I've changed my user name with the capital M to indicate that it's my real first name. I didn't that we could change that, thanks.

Judging a poster on two posts, one of which is asking how to change their username may make a lot of sense to you. Not to me.

I meant, the user with more posts is more trust worthy, and vice versa. That's not always correct but is a good approximation.

The user that joined 10 years ago and is still here indicates that he's serious about OS development as compared to the one that joined, asked a question, and never returned.

The person I referred to had a total of two posts when I made that comment. (Now three.) Hardly a sufficient record to make any useful judgement.

Well, I'm sorry. I got you wrong.

I thought, you were saying that post-count didn't matter for ANYONE, not just for the OP.
