I've come to the realization that I am incapable of managing my time online, so I'm quitting all online communities so I can focus on the real world. I'm going to scramble my password, but I've found ways around that in the past. Please ban my account so I can't come back.

Not *actively* in Atlasia then. As I said elsewhere, Zombie Voters are a cancer in Atlasia.

He only registered 5 days ago. We have no idea whether he'd be active or a zombie.

Out of curiosity, have you or the other mods ever acted on these requests for "Bans to accomodate my RL"?

Sometimes, but I don't want to encourage it. The ban feature is not meant to act as a replacement for self-control.

Would it be difficult to create a "delete your account" option like most forums have? I wonder why Dave never made one.

I forget the exact reasoning, but he very much intended for that to not be possible.

I don't blame him either. I wouldn't have enabled it myself. People make rash decisions to delete their accounts and just end up coming back later. And for many users, deleting their account would wipe out a bunch of threads too, particularly if they tended to author a bunch of megathreads, like some on here do.

I don't know if it's possible with this technology, but on many other forums, deleting an account doesn't delete any posts. Instead those posts are simply noted with the username/screenname and nothing else - i.e. the profile info/signature disappears, but the post itself does not.

He did in the early days. He later disabled it.
