AMEN!!!! Now if only every forum I belonged to was managed the same way..... well my boss would be REALLY pissed because I'd go from getting little done to nothing at all.

I'm a newbie HERE and just getting the hang of things but so far I love it! Great advice, helpful people and varrying opinions. I'd rather read someone's honest words then some "sugar coated to meet Admins approval" posts.

I belong to a few forums (gardening and others) and I honestly can't STAND when whiney people post a "good-bye cruel people" thread! IMO..... if you don't like it then STFU and leave.... don't let the door hit ya on the way out!

I know this thread is old, but I do think if we don't want goodbye threads etc. That we should be able to delete our accounts. Any mod or Rollitup himself care to explain why we do not have the "freedom" to close our accounts? This is probably one of the only places where you cannot do it.

when you start threads or post advice it helps people. why take that with you? it will continue to help people as long as this site is up and running. long after you leave. is this a bad thing? :blsmoke::peace:

Not at all, say a user wants to close their account so they could no longer post or have access to it. All the posts/pics etc would be saved on the site. Something like this... note the highlighted. His user name is deactivated and is labeled a "guest". I guess deactivate is a better term.

why is it so important to "close" the account? i've never heard of this. i don't frequent many forums though. i have accounts i opened on other forums over a year ago. i don't even remember the site. i never post, the account is open. i do see an issue. i just don't understand. people ask to have accounts closed then 2 weeks later they change their minds. i see this more often than not.

Well paranoia for one, people get paranoid and feel more secure knowing that they don't have an open account that could potentially be used against them if something were to happen to them. I guess if it was that deep they could always go to their ISP and pull up their browsing history. I dunno man, it's just that we preach freedom of speech here and everything is so open, why wouldn't we have the choice to close our accounts? It just seems like it's contradicting is all, I know every user has a right to leave and never come back, but why not be able to do so and take your personal info (email address, account settings etc) and delete them?

It woud be nice if you could dlete your account if you did leave as I know with that cop basterd runnng greenpassion he locks you out and then keeps all your posts and opictures and threatens to turn them over to police to get you busted.I think the main reason people wan this option is if they no longer feel a site is home then they should be able to take thier furniture with them or at least know know one is sleeping in thier bed.A deactvate would be cool to where if you left you could leave the posts but the name and the pictures in the threads would say non user and the pictures would be taken down..I doubt we will get that optin but it would be nice to have that feeling of security.
