Lots of people are having issues requesting their account for deletion.
Creating this thread to address that problem and where we can have ongoing dialogue since I do not expect this issue to resolve any time soon.
First, here is how you would go about requesting your account to be deleted:
Using full site mode (not tapatalk or mobile), click on your username on top right ---> My Settings (from dropdown menu) ---> Delete My Account (which is located on left side of screen). If you do not have the option to delete your account, then you are victim of a glitch. It may resolve on its own randomly one day, or it may never resolve (until we get new software and that doesn't appear to be a plan at this time).
The other option is I (or another mod) can ban your account which cuts off all access to your account. The ban will not count against you if you ever decided to return in the future. Unfortunately, we have no other options at this time as far as account deletion.
Feel free to drop a comment below if you are someone affected by the glitch and would like your account banned. If you have any other general tech support questions, please feel free to drop a comment below as well and I will help if I can.
