why do you want to close your account sassie!
[admin]#2
Because there is no account to close. Just walk away. Change your email and password to something you won't remember if you really want to stay away.

If someone wants an account closed for a specific and legitimate reason surely thats ok though? Close/Ban that account and allow them to open a new? Seems ok to me so long as the Team knows and is ok with the reasoning...

I dont know what the Teams processes involved etc are but is this a big job?

LadyMadonna asked the same thing, I don't really understand why it's not done:

Nah i would just leave, but someone on here needs their account closing for personal reasons, they still want to post but under a name they wont be found under, now admin will allow that person to have that account remain open (although their is no account) but wont let them have another account (i mean non account) so they cant do this, so now they are deleting thousands of posts so they can keep account but under a new name :roll:
#11
sassie could they not just ask to change the username? that seems to be allowed

changing usernames will still bring up posts of old name, so not much point in that

well some have got their wish, i believe purely just becasue they like another name better, this member doesnt want a better name, just to be able to post without being found, i cant say no more

Why "cigs" then?
#18
It is only an opinion, but maybe it is to well, essentially counterfiet the ammount of people that use this site, number of members = number of accounts?

Meaning they may get more financial backing or such on the ammount of people that use the forum?

Knowing full well that people have many many multiple accounts and there is no real reason not to delete an account at the users request. Also, banned members still show up as members too..

Note for admin: I am not trying to create "Forum Dramatics" as you might think, I am purely trying to give an appropriate answer based on the evidence at hand, and in truth, is only an opinion, one that may not be correct or shared by anyone else. But without actual verification from yourselves it does leave the issue "up for discussion" hence the reason for sassies thread.
banned#19
I just dont understand why it cant be done, hence why i thought admin would like to explain, because i nor others cant see it being such a massive thing to do

@dudeygeezer, that wouldnt make no sense, so ban the name and given them another, thats still two accounts so if that was the case it would be allowed

If there is a genuine need to change an account name we do it. We stopped changing names for casual reasons because it was causing too much confusion.

DudeyGeeza - It's the other way around though because we do not allow duplicate accounts.

If they have thousands of posts, then there writing style will be familiar, so they would be found out by novice troll hunters/multiple I.D finders such as myself quite quickly.

If I were to start a new account, it would become obvious who I was quite quickly once I posted yet another top guide to grace the boards with.

So i take it your not going to actually say why you wont close a non-account so a member can have a new one, for a genuine reason of course

not going into it, but lets say that isnt a problem
#28
I don't understand why anyone would want to close their account and open a new one? Were they not happy with the way they were previously treated? Did they decide that their actions and decisions were wrong and want a fresh start? Neither are valid reasons in my opinion. Or is it something else entirely?

I don't want the ins and outs, that's between you and them, but it seems that the problem isn't their account, but their posts?

If their posts need deleting, I wouldn't have thought it was as easy as pressing a button and "Poof" all their posts gone.


p.s I have little/no knowledge of websites.

if they had a new account their posts wouldnt need deleting, but changing your name is no good unless all old posts are deleted, as a search would bring them together


Search BG! posts and see what comes up, his old username comes up as well as his new
#33
But why delete posts? Did the person post them, and if so, shouldn't they take responsibility for posting them in the first place?? We can't just all go around changing our personalities by starting a new account

i have already explained why twice now, if admin will only change their name thn old posts have to go otherwise there is no point in changing their name, a search will bring up their old name and their new one, so no point in changing it

if admin had allowed a new account, then the old posts could have remained as there would be no connection etween new name and old one

Until someone pointed out the connection between the two.

I think the fact that you can't reveal what the real problem is, you are stuck with admin's decision.
#36
I don't think your getting me! Why should they be allowed to have their account forgotten about? They were responsible for their posts. Do they now not wish to be associated with them? Personally, I would take offense to anyone who posted here then decided they wanted a new persona. I would feel they were being deceptive/dishonest

this is naff alll to do with any member on here, so its nothing to do with a connection, all you or i, or anyone else needs to do is put the old username into the search, but then i think you already knew that
#39
I think that the reason they want their name changed is not because of anything they have said but perhaps someone in real life found out their HUKD alias and that poster does not want that person reading their posts in fear of slipping up and giving away information that they wouldn't want that person having

If that makes sense lol

Sassie wouldn't be on here trying to get someones account deleted so they could have a new one because they said something offensive etc. She would make them face the consequences of what they said so you can rest assured that the poster in question has a legitimate reason for wanting a new account with no link to their old one.
[admin]#40
This whole thread is a prime example of what I complained about the other day. Are we actually answering the question in the first post or some secret situation none of us know about?

If you want to post a feedback thread then please go for it.

If you want to play cloaks and daggers, mystery meanings and hidden questions it just gets a bit difficult to give an appropriate response.
