or: "Basic information about removing your account"
Special thanks to link
, our fanpop guinea pig. (or should I say lab rat?)
Removing your own account
is a pretty new feature, many people may not be aware of it yet.
If you go to Edit Profile
and scroll all the way down, you'll find:
If you'd like to remove your account, click here.
Now what does this mean?
If you delete your account, you must know that:
Your contributions will not be deleted.
All your images, links, comments, forum posts, wall posts, replies remain
on fanpop, next to your username.
If you click on that username however, you will be redirected to the fanpop main page.
The spots you created are not affected. If you create a spot, you always create it for everyone, it's not like you're the queen of this spot.
You are the queen of the spot when you have a red medal on said spot
(just kiddin ;])
For future spot icon/banner changes on your spot the F4 can be messaged.
What I said also makes very clear, that
(a) you can not make a new account with the name of a deleted account
since the name actually remains on fanpop- just the profile of it is gone.
(b)there's probably a chance to get your deleted account back
if you made a mistake.
I think the powerful F4 could do it for you ;)
Just like they unban users from time to time.
I hope this information was accurate, if not, let me know. Happy account removing ;)
