    I sent a note in the contact us link at the bottom of the page a little over a week ago but didn't hear back.

    Who do I contact to terminate my account here?

    Hi Snow,
    Just abandon it? (again)

    Many member leave, for many reasons...
    Since you have absolutely NO content, posts, or photos associated with your account, what are you hoping to gain? You have not been here in almost 4 years, why is closing an unused account important after years of inactivity?


    The site does NOT require anyone to register to browse. It is all completely open and free.

    Was redoing all my passwords, how they're stored, etc. Found this account that I had admittedly forgotten about. Just closing loose ends

    Just change the password to something completely and utterly ridiculous, like a long string of gibberish. Copy/paste it in to confirm the password change.

    Voila, even you can't get in. Not many places actually close/delete an account. Not sure what the problem is with just letting it go? If you want it locked out, put in a really jacked up password and move on.

    Modern software does not store peoples' passwords. It will store an irreversible hash of their password. When you enter your password, it the hash is calculated again and compared to the stored hash. Now I am not absolutely certain that Xenforo works this way, but it is modern enough that I would expect that it does.
