Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Can a user "log out and forget" being logged in to a SE site so that it doesn't appear on my accounts page nor appears in the daily notification digest?

There are a couple sites that I popped in to that I would rather not be on my various lists.

That's the ticket. – monsto Feb 4 '13 at 21:15

Note that the accounts page lists (linked) accounts that you have to choose to create; it does not show sites that you happened to visit while logged in elsewhere.

If you have not voted or posted on a site, then you can self-delete your account on that site (or if you have posted, you can request a deletion), which will remove the site from your accounts list.

Unlinking accounts without deleting them is not supported, though I imagine in principle you could try to convince the SE team to edit your existing contributions to refer to a new account.

I didn't think you could get notified unless you posted? So yeah I've posted and don't want anything from those sites anymore for the foreseeable future. So what do I request deletion from those sites? How/where is that? – monsto Feb 4 '13 at 21:15
Here's a direct link to the deletion request form. Remember, this will remove your name from all of your posts on that site, among other things! – Kevin Reid Feb 5 '13 at 1:20

The reason that logging in to a SE site determines notifications, is because that is how you register for a site. Once you're registered for a particular site, then you will be notified from that site. If you want to not be notified for a site, then never log in, and it won't set up an account for you there.

OP already has an account; unless you have a time machine you're loaning out, "don't make an account and you won't get notifications" doesn't seem very helpful. – Josh Caswell Feb 3 '13 at 20:01
@Josh, it was a direct answer to his question, and an explanation of why. – Lance Roberts Feb 3 '13 at 23:26
I wish I could downvote this again. Severely unhelpful. – monsto May 13 '15 at 22:12
@monsto, Well hopefully someday you get a better attitude, but I won't let your attitude keep me from trying to help people. – Lance Roberts May 13 '15 at 22:16
