How can I delete my Trailhead org and create a new one? Or a second one?

I'm having some issues and the response was to try a new org - how do I do that and link it to my Trailhead account?

Hi Denise,

You do not need to delete your current org in order to create a new one. You just need to sign up for a new developer edition by clicking here: https://developer.salesforce.com/signup and then from the Trailhead challenge (using the same account you've already been using), click on the "Launch your hands-on org" button and click on "Log into a Developer Edition".

You can also create a new Trailhead Playground by clicking on the "Launch your hands-on org" button and clicking "Create a Trailhead Playground". This is much easier than creating a new Developer Edition.

I would like to know, however, which module you were working on and what the error was. Did your error look like this?:
Challenge not yet complete... here's what's wrong:
There was an unexpected error while verifying this challenge. Usually this is due to some pre-existing configuration or code in the challenge Org. We recommend using a new Developer Edition (DE) to check this challenge.
 
If so, this error usually pops up when the Trailhead team has not created a more specific error message for the challenge. It's very likely that you just missed a small step and the issue can be fixed. I would be happy to help you find your error if you give me more details about what you were working on.

Thanks so much for your response, Charisse! I wasn't getting that error. A description of my issue can be found at https://developer.salesforce.com/forums/ForumsMain?id=9060G000000IB8P#!/feedtype=SINGLE_QUESTION_SEARCH_RESULT&id=9060G000000I2e7QAC
If you have any ideas, I'd be happy to try them - otherwise, I'll create a new org.

Denise, I went ahead and posted a response on the other thread so that other people can find it. If that's not the issue and it's not a field-level/assignment issue, then I would go ahead and create a new Trailhead Playground and try again.

After signing up for a new dev edition with 5 different passwords...I have not seen Analytics included yet. I do have lots of sandboxes now!
