Any suggestions on how to get rid of my account in the “other place”? I messaged the admins requesting they delete it, but nothing. Do I need to call one of the “main” people there a bad name to get booted off?
I would expect you could ask Oren to delete or anonymize your account. If he hasn’t responded yet, it’s probably not out of spite or anything.
How long ago did you make the request? I’m guessing Oren just hasn’t gotten to it yet.
it’s been awhile…that’s probably it, just getting impatient I suppose.
I’d send him a PM, gently reminding him.
Personally I just haven’t bothered going there. Same result.
Same result, more clutter
I do not possess the technical skill right now to create a plugin, but I do want to put the option to anonymize the account on user control panels. More power to the members and all that. I mean, shit, Proboards does that, and Proboards is how old?
What’s the clutter? Notifications?
I ask because I genuinely don’t know. My BBS handle is tied to a long-extinct email address. When I don’t go there (and I haven’t in some time), it falls off my radar completely. I’ve never been tempted to bother with anonymizing my account, as I don’t really see the point.
Yeah, weekly summaries when you’ve been away from bbs a while. I finally got off my duff and unsubscribed - found the link in small print at the very bottom of one of these and took measures to decrease the clutter in my Inbox.
I meant more clutter for them, not for me. I know it doesn’t actually affect them very much at all but I’m quite happy to leave my account dormant on the site in case there is some weird thing I remember from there and want to look up in five years’ time. It’s not wasting my storage space; why should I clean it up for them?
I opted for optimization the other day just to close it out.
I still have BB on my twitters so I’d get drawn in to posting.
This put an end to that.
