Proper Usage of Forum

Hi, I've been an Elite member for about 2 years now, so the questions I'm about to ask is a bit embarrassing. I guess I should have known these answers by now. In short, I busted out of my account and going back to the drawing board. One of the changes I'm implementing is trying to utilize a lot more in the future.

PS - I have gone through the introductory articles and videos as created by Big Mike but these don't answer my specific questions.

1. How can I change my username?
2. How can I delete a thread I started? Reason: I started a trading journal last year but my strategy is going to change completely. That journal is obsolete and I just want to get rid of it.
3. Since there is 100's of thousands of threads / posts / comments on the forum, how do I filter to see the really good ones? Should I only filter by most viewed or most replied or is there other ways?
4. How can I determine which users are worth following? Obviously some have more experience than others and I would like to learn from those who have solid trading backgrounds.
5. How do I actually follow users?
6. I see some users have their usernames highlighted with a red background. What does that mean?

Thank you
