Title: Account Deletion Help
Post by: firecat55 on December 19, 2013, 09:05:56 am
Hi, I'm registered to a forum that's using/hosted by Create a Forum. I've encountered problems I don't really want to detail on here regarding staff members on the site, but I'm trying to delete my account there and they won't allow for it to be deleted.
It says that my account deletion needs to be confirmed by a staff member and I've asked them to please remove it but they are ignoring me and holding it there. Upon further asking them, they've conveniently created a rule saying all account deletions will be denied yet no member actually agrees to allowing their account to be held indefinitely by staff in their terms of agreements when registering.

The staff have edited things into my profile before and I really don't want them to do that now while I'm in limbo and ruin my reputation with members, and I just want to be off that site for good, but they're not allowing me.
Are they breaking any Create a Forum TOS by not allowing me to delete my own account?? Their registration agreement doesn't state anywhere that we as members agree to allowing them to do something like this to us.

So main thing "you want to delete the account?"
Well,this is not a solution to you're problem but...  just some short info
well okay so firstly,if you want to make another account with the same user,pass,and email
that would work.you can double accounts. It wont say somthing like "this account is in use" or "this email has been used"

nothing like that,so i think you dont need to delete.

Thanks for the reply, but I do not want to return to that forum ever. I want my account deleted from it and to be gone from it entirely.

I Dont think that may happend but if you want the email to get out and change the whole account then just
 >change email
 > change everything
....
and i dont think you may delete it.

Sorry for your problem.  When CreateaForum reads this, they will probably help you out but if not, i suggest doing what the above person said, change details/username.  change email so it is no longer you.  Just a thought.  Have you contacted the owner of the site?  Or you could just be a pain in the neck and spam or something.......not really recommended hahaha but hey, its creative

Yeah I was considering doing that if it got reeeally bad, but I do want to leave it as a last resort. Is there anyway on these forums to search up the posts you've made in the past? With any luck, I can delete all of those too so I can really remove myself from that place. Yeah I've contacted the owner, they replied only once to which they created a rule on the spot that forum account deletions will be denied to allow all users the ability to return to the forum should they wish to in the future. However, there's nothing in the terms of agreement when you register on the site; I sure as heck wouldn't have joined if I knew they could hold my account hostage like this :/

Why do you wanna leave the forum?

Stated in the first post that they didn't want to mention why.

firecat55- Try using this URL to delete your account.

Based on permissions set by administrators, you may not be able to do this. As an alternative, you should be able to delete your forum posts - but this again is dependent on permissions set.

Thanks for the prompt reply Andrew! I apologize for my absence.
Gave that link a go and still doesn't work because my account requires permission before being deleted. Is there any way I can look up my posts so I can just delete them myself and then remove all info from my account as XyO suggested? Thanks so much for your time and help on this!

Edit: Found the 'Show Posts' link in my profile :3 Is there any way to remove or edit posts on locked topics? Also, I seem unable to change my username...

Bump. Is there anything formal I can hold on to to make them delete my account? Something like the fact that we didn't agree to surrender our account in the registration agreement terms?
