Drupal Admin account issue

Hi Experts,

There is something weird happening to my admin account.
So, I using the core profile module (local/admin/user/profile), I added a new single-line-text field named Prueba  (please see attached image 1-step.jpg).
Then I went to my admin account (local/user/1/edit) to see how it looks like (see attached 2-step.jpg).
But I did not like it so I decided to delete Prueba (see 3-step.jpg), but when I clicked delete, instead of deleting only prueba, is asking me if I want to delete my admin account ( see 4-step.jpg).

I don't understand this. Could someone please explain me why instead of only deleting Prueba, it wants to delete de entire admin account?

Thanks in advance.

Winter

Thanks Thomas!! :),
From now on, Im going to delete everything from there.
Do you know  why deleting it from the admin account deletes the actual account instead of just Prueba?

Glad to help!

That delete button is always there when you edit any part of a user, it will delete the users account. I can see how it would be confusing, but once you figure it out it makes sense.

Thanks for the answer Thomas, as you said, it will make sense later on, for now I am just not going to be careful and delete those fields from the place you said otherwise I will delete my admin account again lol. Yup, I did not read anything, just pressed delete and then I could no login back again. I am so glad I backed up my files and database frecuently.  

Thanks again,

Winter

haha, yeah, it's always good to backup. Backup and Migrate can automatically backup daily, http://drupal.org/project/backup_migrate. I highly recommend it.
