When you attempt to create an account on Google Help Forums, it asks for a username to use. Each username is unique.

I have an old account which I set up to use my desired username. Now when I try to use my new email account to create a Google Help account, I can't use that username since my old account is already using it.

How can I remove or change the username from the old account?

Currently, it's a permanent setting[A][B][C], there's no way to change your username. When you create a new account, you must choose a username that doesn't exist.
