Delete account

Recommended Posts

Account deletion tends to break the forums, have you considered changing your password to something random and hard to guess then forgetting about the account?

but how will you be able to tell everyone of us that you're leaving if you don't have an account?

Didn't you know? From the day you sign up, you're here forever. Forever indoctrinated with the religion that is Doom. You can't escape it. Doomguy will find you, and Romero will be the bell-ringer, before all ye holy Carmack's descend upon your bed to take your sanity with the visions of demons and a river of blood, with an upside down cow floating in mud.

maybe he wants to delete the account since he got bad grades for spending too much time trying to shoot rockets into romero's head on a stick.

OK, so you registered less than a year ago, made 4 posts, and you want to delete your account because you "won't use it anymore". Very smart my friend, very smart.

I am afraid that is no longer physically possible.

Have A Nice Day!

You cannot delete accounts on Doomworld for some reason.
Can't delete posts either.
You can only add to the total post and user count.

You can no longer leave.

I've never quite understood why people make a big deal about deleting their accounts or posts when leaving a forum (fun fact: when doing this dramatically and vocally, it's called "flouncing."). Maybe it's out of perceived self-importance--That they think anyone actually cares whether they are there or not? Generally when someone disappears for a while, or never returns, they don't tend to be remembered unless they were exceedingly influential in one way or another (either positively or negatively). It's perhaps unfortunate, but more often than not is true.

So true. For every DooMBoy there's a dozen Doomguys (22, if you want to be pedantic).

I think he's just being courteous, letting the admins know just in case they close inactive accounts to save space or whatever.

How about not wanting to leave e-traces? I've had all of my teen/uni years' websites deleted not only from their servers (though one stayed out of my control for a couple of years before I bothered getting back at it), but also from the Wayback Machine (a simple request was enough).

Type random characters or mash the keyboard in the "new password" field, copy and paste it into "confirm new password" - done. Surprised nobody else has mentioned this.
