Want to remove your account?
As far as I'm aware (and I've done some research and consulted Adora on this), it's not currently possible for users to delete their own account themselves. The efiction software that underpins the website simply doesn't have that feature. As a result, it's an action that can only be taken as an admin.
Whilst I'm of course not happy to see anyone decide to leave the site, I naturally recognise your right to do so and to remove your account in the process.
In order for you to delete your account, I ask for you to contact me through my profile. This will help verify that you're deleting your own account. I will respond to your request as quickly as possible, but please understand that it might take up to a day or two to process.
For the sake of full transparency, I want to let you know that when your account is deleted, it is removed from the database (I tested this to make sure). A backup of the database is made on a frequent basis (to ensure that we don't lose anything if there was a bug or another issue) and so your data will be retained in these historic backups. Of course, your data is safe and will not be used whatsoever, but I want to make it open that the data will still exist, even if not used.
I've gone ahead and processed all the account deletion requests that I've received through my profile, so there should not be any outstanding requests - let me know if this is not the case and I will rectify this swiftly.
