Hey all,

If you're registered and have made one or fewer posts, you can now request your account be deleted through an automated form. I may lift the restriction on post count after awhile if this functionality works as expected.

You can start the process through this link. The reason for requesting account deletion is optional.

Some information and disclaimers about this process:
  • After you request your account to be deleted, it will go into a queue for 3 days before it's finalized.
  • You can login and cancel this if you want during the 3 day period.
  • You will get an e-mail reminder 1 day before it's final.
  • Once it's finalized, your username will be scrambled and your e-mail address will be stripped off the account.
  • This process is not reversible and we can't recover your account.
  • This doesn't delete any of your posted content, but all members have the ability to edit their own posts if desired.
Some other changes made in relation to this:
  • IP log retention has been increased from 2 days to 7 days.
  • Automatic removal of inactive accounts has been disabled.
  • A valid e-mail address is required for your account to stay active and valid on the site.
Also reiterating some related information that may be useful in regards to privacy:
  • It is highly unlikely I will ever implement a way for users to delete all their posts and content in bulk in order to maintain content continuity.
  • If you registered with an e-mail that you don't want associated with an adult website, you can change the e-mail assigned to your account at any time, but it does have to be valid. If you set your account's e-mail address to a bogus address, your account will eventually be flagged as invalid and will have limited functionality.
  • We don't send out any newsletters or actual content by e-mail, just notification messages. You can tune what kind of e-mails you receive on the same page you update your e-mail address. I'd really appreciate it if you did this rather than mark our e-mails as spam. It hurts the site's reputation.
  • If you signed up with your favorite online handle and you're worried your buddies will find out you like to get down on some sweet, off-beat porn, you can change your username once a year.
If you have any questions or concerns about this new feature and the other changes made, please post here. I'm going back to my hiding hole.
