View Full Version : Account Deletion

April 24th, 2013, 06:49 PM
Recently the staff has had a number of requests from users who want their accounts deleted. This has always been a common theme, but is beginning to become prevalent across the board. For that reason, it has become necessary to make an announcement.

Unless confronted with a compelling (think 'utterly') reason, we will not delete a member's account. Doing so would delete all his/her threads and remove the posts of other active members. It is entirely within a member's right to edit their posts to nothing and leave the site, but we will not breach long-standing WF policy to accommodate their departure. Instead, if they relay to us what facilitated the desire to leave, we will work with them to resolve it -- but blanket deletion is out of the question.

Thank you.

There have been many requests for account deletion in the last few months. I'm bumping this thread so that new and old members will be reminded of WF policy when it comes to this matter.
