    Deleting Account

    Hi All,

    How do I permanently deactivate an account? I want to delete this account since I presently have a second account that is much more active.

    Re: Deleting Account

    I assume you're talking about an account here on the forum. I doubt it will be done because linked to that account are a number of posts that you've made and those will also be deleted in that case or they would become 'orphans'.

    But you can contact a moderator and ask; they know better than me

    In case you're talking about an user account on your PC, you can use the command userdel.
    If you don't make backups of your important data, your data is obviously not important to you.

    I'm assuming that you're referring to your forum account, and have moved your thread to the resolution centre. A friendly forum admin will come by when they get a chance and take a look at your situation. Please keep in mind that the usual procedure is to disable rather than delete forum accounts.

    We don't delete accounts, but I have disabled it, and removed all your personal details. Unfortunately, you probably won't be able to view this post.
