A mod can delete a user, or destroy their account if the user has less than 500 reputation points.

The community user has 1 reputation point and is a user. So, what happens if I try to delete or destroy the community user of our site? Are there safegaurds for this since deleting the community user can break the entire site?

No, it's not possible. I can fill in a form specifying the reason for deletion, but upon submitting I get a 500 Internal Server Error page:

Oops! Something Bad Happened!

We apologize for any inconvenience, but an unexpected error occurred while you were browsing our site.

    Hope you braced yourself for the revenge in case your test would have been successful... ;-) – Shadow Wizard is Vaccinating Jul 8 '18 at 12:11

    I wonder what happens when you try to delete your own account? Just kidding. I wouldn't try that one. ;) – Jason Bassford Jul 8 '18 at 13:35
  • @JasonBassford that's not possible, you have to contact the Community Team for certain actions on your own account. – Glorfindel Jul 8 '18 at 13:53
  • Have you tried the above? Since you mentioned "can", I'm not sure if it's theory. – Jack Johansson Jul 8 '18 at 15:18

    Yes I tried; this what I get after clicking the Submit button. – Glorfindel Jul 8 '18 at 15:19
  • @Glorfindel I hope you are not joking, going to test it now :P – Jack Johansson Jul 8 '18 at 16:20

    It had been funny if it would be successful. ;-) – peterh - Reinstate Monica May 1 '19 at 18:01
