To close your account down, there are a couple of things that need to ask yourself?
- Do you want to shut the account down or are you just retiring?
- Do you want to hide your profile from the rest of the world and still preserve your history of being a member?
In order to shut the account down, you need to do the following.
- Go to the Account Menu.
- Then go to the Retire Account Link.
- Click the button to Retire you account.
- Within the next week, your account will be removed from the site. This includes your profile from the public view.
- We run an automated cleanup service once a week to clean up the accounts.
- Search Engines might still keep cached copies of your information around for a while.
