Hi there TCMT (hope its ok calling you that)

I will start off by initially answering your question with a question. Will you be at all wanting to go back to TCMT or are you wanting to abandon that all together?

If you are just discarding the current page, you can actually change your name & soundcloud url without needing to re-register for a new account. It may be a slight pain to remove the unwanted content that you have currently but this may well prove an easier option than getting one deleted then setting up another

If you simply want a change of name then this guide will show you how to do it

http://help.soundcloud.com/customer/portal/articles/243759-how-do-i-change-my-display-name-

Is very easy to do & barely take any time at all.

If you do want to go down the deleting one & setting up another route, then follow these instructions
(apologies this is a cut and paste but it will tell you what you need to know)

"You can delete your SoundCloud account by logging in and going to:http://soundcloud.com/settings/account.

If you created this account with Facebook though, then you'll need to set a SoundCloud password first to do this, you can do this here - https://soundcloud.com/login/forgot.

Be aware, it is not possible to remove your account on a mobile device.

If you are unable to remove your account then please get back in touch via email. With some verification questions, we may be able to help you manually delete this account.

Please note: due to our compliance with data protection laws, deleted accounts are permanently removed from our servers and cannot be restored".

Personally, if it was me I would simply do the name & url change process and then just remove the unwanted content, so much easier, but the choice, as they say, is yours :)

Hope that helps

Hi again, I think I missed the question in your last response, many apologies. Removing content is very straightforward - hey , if I can do it, no one else should have any problems doing it haha!

Simply click to see your profile page and then any sounds you have uploaded there will be a little "trash can" icon, click that & it deletes that sound. Any sounds which appear on there that you have shared from other people, simply click the little "share icon" underneath the sound (the 2 arrows that make a box shape) and it will "un-share" it. Simples :)

Theres a whole host of info and help regarding managing sounds and playlists here:

But don't hesitate to get back in touch if you have any other queries or questions :)

Take it easy my friend :)
