How to close your account

If you have forgotten your login password, we will need your username and account email address. This will be the address used for registration when you first joined the network (unless you updated the address).

These details are needed so that we can confirm that you own the account that is being closed. Note: If you can log in to your account, it is better to log in and go to "Close my account" under your username in the main menu.

Your account can be closed in four ways. Please tell us which option you prefer (O1, O2, O3 or O4). There is no need to tell us why you wish to leave, but we would be happy to know.

Option 1 - Display but disconnect. Keep my posted content displayed, with my name and other details showing as usual, but mark public profile as "Former Member", and turn off all notifications. (You can do all of this yourself if you want; that is easier for Admin).

Option 2 - Display, but disconnect and make anonymous. The Research Cooperative can keep all posted content, but remove all my personal details (username, email address, personal profile details) from the account. (The account will be given a number for use by the Research Cooperative).

Option 3 - Take offline. Please move my account to a closed archive where none of the details can be seen except by Admin. (The account can be renewed at any time with a further request to Admin).

Option 4 - Full delete. Delete all records of my account including posted messages and attached replies, profile details, and other content. (After deletion, nothing can be recovered).
