What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I recently combined 2 OpenID accounts, but I no longer want to use one or the user name associated with it. I have about 6 days left on my wait. Why do I have to wait so long?

The delay is to avoid frequent name changes, which can be very confusing.

If you have a good reason to change, mail team@stackoverflow.com, I'm sure they can help you.

A few users were having fun here on Meta by changing their names regularly. Hilarity ensued.

Then a few whiners ruined it for everyone.
