I think there should be an option in the settings whereby you can delete your account if you want to leave the Forum.

Facebook has a handy Deactivate Account as well as a Delete Account in it's settings.

It would be handy to have such options for TellyTalk.

We don’t delete accounts. If you no longer wish to post that’s a personal choice.

The advantage of deleting or deactivating a Facebook account is that you will no longer receive notifications of when you are tagged in a post but as you don't get those types of notifications from Telly Talk what is there to gain by deleting your account? If it stays open but unused, how would that impact negatively on someone?

In addition to the excellent points made by Angela, a key reason for not deleting accounts is because of the effect it would have on the discussions. If a member's posts all vanished, conversations in many threads could become confusing - perhaps even misleading - to read through.

Pretty much this, especially on a forum like TellyTalk where conversations doesn't move at lightning speed and old posts are consistently bumped.

I wanted to have my account deleted once. So I understand the question but I haven't thought about what it would mean for the discussions in the threads. I just wanted to have a dramatic exit in that moment. Of course I was already thinking about a new alias name to return with - just in case I would miss something... ;)

A bit like Cathy Geary in Knots Landing when she exited in a dramatic season finale only to return with a new name.
