How do I delete my account?

Post by gdawilson » Sun Sep 20, 2009 4:57 am

I only created this account to ask a question, for a problem that I was having-it's fixed now. So I would like to close my account. How would I go about doing this?

We generally don't delete accounts. Is there a specific reason for you wanting this?

It's not neccessary for me to have an account on this site; so I feel that I should just close my account.

gdawilson, if you ever have a question in the future you will have to reregister for an account. Plus deleting your account would cause the topic you created about your problem to be deleted also. Another user might have your problem in the future, as some users don't upgrade Avant very often, and will use the solution in your topic to fix their problem. That is one of if not the main reason we don't delete accounts.

Account deleted, problem solved, this is for the people in the future, because I already had a written out when I realized that the account was alrady deleted... :oops:

I still don't understand why "I don't feel it is neccessary to have this account" is a good reason to delete it. If you don't trust that the salt on PhpBB's passwords are secure enough, or you just don't trust the security of the server, why not just change your email address and password to something else that you wouldn't ever use otherwise? Or is it that you don't want people tracking your username to this site?
