Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 149 Stack Exchange communities.

I have accounts on several stackexchange sites. I do not wish to be removed from all of them, just one or two that I never really use and am no longer interested in. Is this possible? If so, how? If not, please consider this a feature request.

Like many others, I suspect, I have signed up for one or two SE sites that I don't really partake in. While there is no harm in remaining, it makes sense that I leave them... but like you, I see no way of doing this. It's curious that at least 8 others agree, yet no-one else has answered or commented. –  CJM Dec 5 '11 at 15:50

This feature has now been implemented.


Ok, I'm not official but here's what happened when I created and subsequently deleted my bicycles.stackexchange.com account

4 Accounts after joining bicycles.stackexchange.com

I then I navigated to my bicycles.stackexchange.com account and clicked delete - a confirmation dialog box is displayed:

The account is deleted. and then about 10 minutes later is removed from my list of accounts:

Before I try this, can anyone official confirm that this will work? –  ericgorr Jul 28 '12 at 10:29
@ericgorr It will work, but you can only delete your own site profiles where you haven't had much activity. To delete profiles with posts on them, you have to contact us via the "contact us" link at the bottom of every page. See here for more info: How can I delete my account?. –  Anna Lear Jul 28 '12 at 15:47
See stackoverflow.com/help/user-deletion, @ericgorr –  Arjan Jul 28 '12 at 15:55
@Anna, that How can I delete my account? nowadays asks for filling out the form in stackoverflow.com/help/user-deletion, rather than using the "contact us" link? –  Arjan Jul 28 '12 at 15:58
@Arjan "Contact us" leads to the page that, in turn, leads to the form. Same diff. –  Anna Lear Jul 28 '12 at 20:42
Ah, my bad @Anna, I didn't see that "contact us" no longer is an email link! –  Arjan Jul 28 '12 at 20:48
@AnnaLear Are the vote/comment associations kept when the account is deleted in this way? So, if one decides to join again, can (s)he view his/her comments at the activity tab? –  Rob W Jul 28 '12 at 21:31
@RobW No, if the account is removed and the user later signs up again, none of the questions, answers, votes, or any other activity are mapped back. –  Anna Lear Jul 30 '12 at 16:47
the link doesn't work –  Danubian Sailor Mar 9 at 9:44
