Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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.

Thanks for clarifying :) – Diventare Creative Jan 11 '11 at 22:43

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

Then a few whiners ruined it for everyone.
