    To all those members requesting an account deletion (sometimes multiple times).

    These requests will be actioned as soon as possible however it is far from a one-step process and cannot be done by very many people (for example I, and most of the moderators, do not have the correct permissions to do this).

    Your patience is appreciated.

    Hopefully these requests are not from accounts where stolen credentials are being used for nefarious purposes...

    So far they have all been very inactive users. We will monitor closely requests.

    We are now up to date on all these requests. A few old threads had to be deleted to truly remove all data, which I guess could affect some post counts, but otherwise I'm hopeful nothing is broken!

    "Back in t' day" we used to prune old accounts yearly that hadn't been accessed for ~4/5 years to release usernames. Sometimes it messes with old threads but few people dig them up.

    On the new forum are you gonna start a fresh? Or migrate?
