I decided to delete my account about a month ago since I have not been using the site as much. I accessed the "Contact and Support" page and followed all the procedure to delete my user profile. I recieved an email from SE stating that I needed to login into my account and that I should've followed the link that had been posted.

However, for various reasons I postponed the deletion.

Now, when I try to access the link it states that it doesn't exist. Therefore, I tried to delete my account again, but, I get the error message:

"Your previous delete request is pending. If you haven't heard from us in a day or two and your profile is not yet deleted, please contact us via the 'Other' topic."

Any ideas on how to solve this problem?

    Have you contacted them using the "Other" topic? – HDE 226868 Apr 7 '17 at 2:23
  • The link provided to delete your account naturally expires in a short period of time. This is a security measuer taken to ensure unauthorized access to your account is not done at a later stage. – BusyProgrammer Apr 7 '17 at 2:42
  • contact us via the 'Other' topic. does not mean posting here. Try that first, wait a day or two, and only then post here. Good luck. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Apr 7 '17 at 6:40
