Deleting account?
« on: April 14, 2019, 03:20:24 PM »
Hello,

I'm trying to delete my account from this forum and am not finding an easy and/or obvious way to do so. I've tried PMing an admin but the PM option is not working for some reason. If account deletions can only be done by an admin, could one of you be so kind and delete my account?

Thanks!

Too late, you shall be branded for life. Especially since you have only one post asking for your account to be deleted. :)

A moderator can delete your account.  I’ll forward this to them for action.

Is there a reason one can't delete there own account but has to reach out and ask a mod to do it?

The ‘delete’ function isn’t the cleanest. So we don’t really ever ‘delete’ your account.  We de-identify it.

What would happen to, for example, this thread if the OP's account is deleted? Is the entire thread deleted too along with the posts of all the people who replied? Are all of the deleted account's posts deleted? What would that do to the continuity of a thread that they had been active in?

Trust me, it's better this way.
