How do I close my account down?

To close your account down, there are a couple of things that need to ask yourself?

  1. Do you want to shut the account down or are you just retiring?
  2. 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.

  1. Go to the Account Menu.
  2. Then go to the Retire Account Link.
  3. Click the button to Retire you account.
  4. Within the next week, your account will be removed from the site.  This includes your profile from the public view.
  5. We run an automated cleanup service once a week to clean up the accounts.
  6. Search Engines might still keep cached copies of your information around for a while.
