1. This thread is not about DB specifically
2. To prevent others from becoming a victim of Rick Astley, DB did not write a farewell post nor is there a thousand rep section.
3. I didnít know DB had become a guest.
4. By sifting through the replies, my initial question about leaving has been answered. It is possible to leave this forum by asking the mods to make you a guest. Your past posts will remain.

Edit: a mod should have made this clear.

Posts have always remained. the difference is that during the T&C purge the user remains as poster where as now it is "guest"

What can I say, every online forum is reaching a point blah blah....but I won't say that because their reasons were obvious.

Since the ability to ignore a mod function has been removed again (that was pretty short lived) I can see others following suit in the near future too.

Re: Mixed messages: EF deletion of posts

What is a guest? Just a euphemism for being deleted (or cancelled as I guess it is fashionable to say these days). Or is there actually such a status as guest?

Re: Mixed messages: EF deletion of posts

Guest is simply not a member. Either not yet, or no longer a member (to be able to post and participate).

At one time, when I wanted to delete mine....it wasn't possible and I was told by someone in the know, that EF is like Hotel California ..."you can check out, but never leave."

If a mod in the know,could/would answer Today Only's question, I'd also be glad about the info.

Re: Mixed messages: EF deletion of posts

Hypothetically speaking, as they no longer have an account, they could just create a new one and it wouldn't be a duplicate account.

In that case they couldn't be banned for having a duplicate account.

Is that right?

Re: Mixed messages: EF deletion of posts

I don't get the drama. Some people decide to leave, others decide to join, normal stuff. Just checked, currently 704 (seven hundred and four!) guests browsing! I can bet that among them are the recently left.

The "message" of one "leaving" is nothing but useless vanity. Nobody cares, life moves on.

Well seems to work like that for 1 or 2 recent arrivals.

As Baboon said, contact EditorBob and ask for your account to be deleted.


Iīd imagine that things have changed since GDPR, EE.

That's correct because of GDPR's right to be forgotten, EF should not be able to identify that they would be accounts if the same person.

Hypothetically, seeing the account is deleted, the name should be avialable again.

So they can even open a new account in the same name.

All that they would lose would be their post stats and blobbies.
