    No, I haven't written one on that topic. If you want to close your account, contact us (using the "Contact us" link at the very bottom of this page) and we will assist you.

    I renewed my USMS membership yesterday. I got through the whole process until the Submit. I've been stuck there for over twelve hours. I'm afriid to turn my computer off or exit the screen. How do I get this to submit?

    Re: Forums Account Help

    Here's my unofficial, non-techy answer (because my computer does what it likes very often): Either the request has been submitted or it hasn't. A successful submission produces 2 emails, one a copy of the billing to your CC acount, the other a welcome stating your club affiliation and contact info for your LMSC registrar.
    If you have not receive the 2 emails, I think you have not been billed and it is perfectly fine to exit the page, turn off computer, and try again.
    If, when you exit the page, you find the 2 emails, then you are registered.
    It seemed to me that Internet traffic was high yesterday and many sites were slow loading pages.
    Hope this helps!

    Re: Forums Account Help

    New question - How do you do a new line on these forum messages? I've tried using Enter and variations of Enter with the control/shift/FN keys as well and can't get a line break for a new paragraph. Is there a setting I've missed?

    The moderators can change your user name. Send me a Private Message with what you would like it to be.

    I'm likely just missing something, but how do I get my email with my new @usms.org address?
