I wish to delete my account for one specific reason. Can anyone tell me how to delete it?

Probably you'll want to submit a request to a mod or a site manager.

stop using it?

the staff can delete accounts but that's only done for spammers, I'm sure removing an account that's added a significant amount of content to the site would screw things up

Can you or someone else delete my account? I have only reason for wanting to delete it anyways.

i meant that is probably your best option here...your account will most likely never be fully deleted, so why not just forget this one and make a new one (if you want to stay on comicvine)?

No way, man. Once you're in there's no turning back. It's like a gang. Comic Vine for life, son!

Insult staff members and moderators. I m sure you will get your account deleted :P

you could go through your forum history and try deleting all your posts if you have the time. however you can't delete the first post in threads you created so you'll have to edit them and post furry porn or something so the mods delete it, and if any of your threads are locked then you're screwed. there's also no way you can delete the posts that have you quoted.

PS. Curse like there's no tomorrow, it can't hurt your odds.

See, wouldn't you regret deleting it? They don't let us delete our accounts because we always come back anyway.

That's exactly why I didn't want to delete it, I'm pretty sure someone would've missed my presence, don't know who though.

Post porn in the forums. That usually works.

I fell off my chair while laughing at your post. anyways that's a good way for escaping.

I honestly wouldn't bother deleting it. If its because nobody takes you seriously then screw them. You are entitled to your opinion. If its because you don't want to be hounded fight back a little and don't let them bully you.

No there's not. Not sure why this needed a bump, either.
