How to delete my account

Post by Toejam76 »

Hello!
I would like to delete this account and data and wrote a PM to nathan, raboof and khz to do so, but didn't receive a response and it looks like the account is still active.
There is no option under the profile settings to delete the account unfortunately.
It would be greatly appreciated if someone could just delete it.
Thanks!

Just change your contact details to fake ones in your profile and change password to one you won't remember.
If all your posts are deleted it breaks the flow of any topics you have contributed. That said, I'm pretty sure it is possible in phpBB to delete an account without deleting posts. Up to the mods I guess. On another forum for which I am an admin, we don't normally accede to account deletion requests.

Alright, thanks. I guess I will do that and was going to delete the email anyway. I don't mind leaving the posts on the board and wrote that to the admins. But just saying that other boards can just do that with a click without having the user nagging. And what are the mods going to do with users that are banned? Not saying I am going for that method. Maybe update the board and give the user to do it themselves and not waste anyones time.

Where? I don't see a message from you.

We're using the phpBB forum software and are not planning any changes to it other than updates at this time - you could consider sending them a feature request, though.

I'm not sure what you mean?

Why would you need your account and data to be deleted?

Most probably your posts are archived by the WayBack Machine already!
