Deleting account

What does it mean to delete my account?

When we delete your account, we delete your member profile as well as your IP address and contact info including your email. Your username will still be visible in posts.

If you are banned for violating our Site Terms, we may maintain a copy of your email or IP address for the purposes of preventing you from further use of the site.

Does deleting my account mean that all of my content on the site will also be deleted

If you would like erasure of any posts (content) containing your personal data on our website, you can edit/delete those posts yourself if you have an active membership here. If you do not have an active membership or require assistance, use the "Contact Us" link in the site footer (bottom of the page), and we will assist with erasure of that content. With the exception of content which contains personal data, we will not delete your posted content on request.

To request account deletion, please contact us using this form with the subject "Account Deletion". Please include in your message what your forum username is, email address that's associated with your username and that you have read this help page on account deletion. If you want to anonymize your username in posts, please add this information too.

Automatic account deletion

If you are inactive (haven't logged in) for 365 days, your account may be automatically deleted. Your account is not deleted if you have any posts, reviewed a resource, uploaded media to the gallery, or have more than 3 personal conversation messages.
