    Default How can I close and delete my account?

    I got an email about user names and passwords being hacked and needing to go change them all. Well, I got a list of almost 30 forums I need to go to. Many of them I never use and I'm streamlining the forums. Since I don't use this one, I would like to delete my account.

    I just glanced at this and saw " Popeye " and " How can I close my account. " The first thought through my head was, " OK, Who divided by zero? "

    These doesnt seem to be a "delete account" function available user side. I'm not sure is this is something the admins can do.
    In the mean time you could simply change your password and then log out. I cant see any harm in leaving your account dormant.

    Like most forums that is normally done in the ACP (Administrative Control Panel) by someone with Admin access.

    But you can. I've already gone through and deleted all my other posts, so this thread is the only one I'm on.

    You can delete posts. Not your account. And for what it's worth, your posts don't get deleted, either. They are only flagged for the archive.

    As for the admin privileges, it's possible for them to delete your account, however, most forums won't do it.
