See here: viewtopic.php?f=159&t=321584

You need to login by using your email address as the username. Then you are allowed to edit your data.

As far as I know we are not allowed to erase a jeep profile.

PM me a request to delete the SN with the details and your SN username.

It looks like the first record (https://sn.g503.com/view/3710) was created long ago
so it was entered in the old SN database and "grandfathered" into the new one:
- Date this SNdb Record Created 2008-10-08 08:09:35
- Date This SNdb Record Last Updated 2024-01-19 17:30:00
Your username for this record would be your email address.
I don't know what your password is, but you can reset it using the tools at
https://sn.g503.com/support

The second record (https://sn.g503.com/view/7408) was created recently:
- Date this SNdb Record Created 2024-01-19 17:25:14
- Date This SNdb Record Last Updated 2024-01-19 20:20:31
I can delete this duplicate record once you are successfully logged in using
the credentials for your old original record mentioned above.

Thank you Ken. As I responded in another post on the this subject, I would like to retain the entry dated 2008 and delete the entry dated 2024. I have PM'd you with my sn.g503 sign in name. Thanks.

Thanks to Ken Creason for the information.
In October 2014 I bought my Ford GPW from Dallas Autoparts.
Yesterday morning I registered my jeep on the sn.G503 Database but for some reason my entry was duplicated. I have the same problem as my pal Patrick Hargreaves. The entry I would like deleted is dated Friday 9th February 2024 11.26 am. The serial number of my Jeep is 136787.
The previous owner of the Jeep had also registered it on the sn.G503 Database in 2009-09-22, his name is Crawford Simkins. Should this be deleted?
Thanks

That is a subject of some debate. Some like the idea of having a record of previous owners.
I have added a message to the older record and a link to your new SN page address.

Hi Ken. I very much like the idea of keeping the record of the previous owner and linking it to my SN page address, I think that it helps with showing a record of the Jeep's history. Thank you very much for doing this and also thank you for deleting the duplicate record. Kindest regards, David Anderton.
