Arrow How can I delete my account?

I tried to have my account deleted a month ago to no avail. Am I supposed to PM any of the administrators, which is what I did last time (read this link, then searched for a list of administrators, and picked one at random to PM, as I can't see any info of one administrator who sole role this is)? Why didn't it work? And why is this process so complicated?! I'd appreciate any insight anyone could offer.

I don't really know the answer to this. I deleted a previous account a few years ago myself. But I don't recall how it was done at the time. The way I read the FAQ it appears you just send a personal message to "Any Administrator" (as opposed to one particular administrator... if that makes sense). It does say that accounts are deleted in batches once per week. So it doesn't necessarily happen immediately. Hope you're leaving because you're doing well enough you don't feel as though you need us anymore. Good luck!

It could have been an "off duty" mod that you messaged. Someone who isn't here much. I'm going to PM you.
