Similar as with username changes, the administrative effort can be significant, if users repeatedly create new accounts and then request their deletion. If you want to have your account deleted, you will need to contact a Forum Administrator individually, and give a good reason as to why you want us to delete your account. If we decide not to grant your request, you still have the option to delete your own account, by means of this external form here. If you decide to do this on your own, please note that the Administrators will not delete any Forum messages you have made either (unless they convey any personal information or are otherwise offensive or inappropriate). You will need to edit/delete these messages on your own - prior to deleting your account.
Hope this helps; though I did want to ask if there was any particular reason - related to the Forum - for that decision? You don't have to answer of course, but it would still be appreciated. And if you do, you can also send a private message through the green e-mail button, for example under my profile.
In general, we don't just delete user accounts "on request", because people would just keep re-creating accounts and then ask for their deletion.
