I want a fresh start. Can I make another account?

I don't know how to say this, but I want to get a fresh start. Pretty much all of my instructables are directed to a certain contest, and I am getting more and more away from k'nex. I don't want to post anything anymore, and I never feel like playing with k'nex. I thought about what I could do to get myself back to knex, and here is what I thought of:  start over. I would want to pretty much quit using this account, and make another one where I just make knex 'ibles, and most of them wouldn't be directed toward a certain contest. (Although I might visit this account once in awhile, I wouldn't put any ibles on it) I would do this right away, but I have one question: can I make two accounts? On some sites I am with, having two accounts for the same person is a HUGE no-no. Soooo it is against the instructables rules to have two accounts for the same person?

It's generally not encouraged to have multiple accounts, however you won't be banned or anything like that. As long as you aren't using multiple accounts to enter contests in hopes of winning more than one prize, you are welcome to create another account.

Please let me or our support team at service@instructables.com know if you have any other questions!

I actually decided I want to keep using this account, cause I don't want to lose all my comments and topics, but I already changed where you talk about you, and I can't change it back. The reason why I can't is cause you can't change your profile unless you verify your email. I had changed my email around recently, but it didn't send a activation (or whatever you call it) email. Do you know what is wrong or how to fix it?

I manually verified your email address. If you are still having troubles making changes to your account please contact our support team at service@instructables.com
