You joined in February, posted nothing, and now you want to delete your account?

We don't really delete forum accounts. If you're concerned, just change the email address, etc. and walk away...

It might seem like it wouldn't matter when the person has two posts, but if you do it for one user, it would be only fair to do it for anyone who asked. What do you think the site would look like if someone with thousands of posts requested account deletion?

Whether or not you find that compelling, you're stuck with your account. Do you mind if I ask why it is so important for you to get rid of it?

because someone stole my pass etc... so I want to delete m accounts before he/she does something inappropriate with my accounts. I have only 2-3 messages in this forum and they're all in this topic.

Just change your password already for god's sake. It is possible last time I checked.

No offence but who cares if they get into this account, it's completely dormant?

But yeah to change your password go:
> User CP in the top bar
> Edit your details
> Edit email and Password

Forgot, your password, then ask a mod for help, if they can change user names I'm pretty sure they can change passwords. If they can't at least the administrators surely can.

And yeah, it would be a shame to lose all a user's posts after account deletion, I mean there would be nothing left of Clayton anywhere if that happened.
