  • User wants to cancel their account

    A member of my forum emailed me and said he wanted to cancel his membership. I know how do do that from the admin control panel, however, I thought that there must be a way for the user to do this himself from the user control panel or somewhere else?

    Thanks for the help.

    There is no way to "cancle membership"

    Usually when I get a request of this, to have their account moved or their posts deleted, I tell them that I will make their account inaccessable and remove any of their personal info.

    I remove their email, add a random MD5 generated password, and remove any contact details.

      yeah, what happened to "remove" in the user field of the control panel? You used to be able to remove a user from the admin area, but now I can't find that option in 3.0.7

      ??

          Ok, egg on my face

          I didn't realize it was in the drop down in the list of users. I didn't see it in the actual user within the panel. Thanks!

            Yes, it is actually possible to delete a member.

            Admin Control Panel > Users > Search Users > Find the user you want to delete, once his profile loads > DropDown: Delete User > And confirm you're sure you want to delete the account.

            If you also want to move the posts from this user to an archive, I suggest you move it before you delete the user. Posts made by deleted users will appear as unregistered/guests- posts, but still with their username.

              Thanks, it is pretty easy to delete a user from the Admin CP.. Just thought there may have been a way for users to delete themselves. For me, it is not a big deal as my forum is small. I would imagine it a bigger hassle if i had many thousands of users with a lot of in/out.

                      This is the vB3 forum, so you won't find any information about vB4 here. Additionally, the place to look for modifications is over on vbulletin.org, the modification site.
