This question already has an answer here:

If I visit some Stack Exchange sites that are under my Accounts section in my profile, my link options look like this:

However, on some Stack Exchange sites my link options look like this:

I have a site listed under my accounts (Skeptics.SE) which I want to delete since I don't use it, but unfortunately the delete link is not available to do so. So my questions are:

  • Why can't I delete it on some sites?
  • Why is there an inconsistency in the first place?

From How can I delete my account?:

If your account has never voted or posted a question or answer more than once, you should see a self-delete option on your user page next to the edit link

The accounts that don't have a delete link are for the accounts that have voted or posted more than once.

Oh no, the account in question just has a lousy extra vote. Looks like I will be filling out the form. Thanks for the link, I don't know how I missed finding it when searching. –  cryptic ツ Mar 11 '13 at 10:52
I get the following error on the linked form page "User Profile Link should be of the form<id>/<display-name>"; I want to delete this account though how can I make sure that by entering in my SO profile that they don't accidentally delete that one. I would die if that happened. I know I can specify it in reason, but as the action is irreversible I want to make sure no accidents can happen. Call me paranoid =oP –  cryptic ツ Mar 11 '13 at 10:59
@crypticツ - What site are you filling the form on? You should be doing so on skeptics, not SO. –  Oded Mar 11 '13 at 11:05
