To prevent meta having around 20 posts "How do I delete my account" and the abuse which normally follows will the new forum be implementing an account button which will allow users to delete their accounts?

To prevent scammers from using this we could have a whitelist process in which they apply and the moderators or maybe a dedicated team of the community such as Default trust can either accept or reject it

It should take at least 2 weeks to delete an account after user clicks deletion button so that owner can undo it if it was done by a hacker.

Another issue is that it would be possible that someone would scam and then try to delete their account. I know that when theymos was honoring deletion requests (I believe this was a long time ago), he would need to check things like the account's sent PM's (including deleted ones) to make sure the account was not recently involved in a scam.

People can already delete their own posts (or the vast majority of them). Being able to delete an account will just be abused like QS said, but also people will have their accounts hacked and and then deleted. It's just too much hassle and work to go though so the current policy of not deleting accounts is likely the best option.

Why do people want to delete their accounts exactly? I have seen many asking for it after the server got hacked but i dont see how that would help them in any way?? Just change your pass and thats it or delete pms you dont want to be seen other than that, whats the deal with that?

Wipe their history. Some wipe because of privacy issue, some for starting fresh after a bad incident or something etc... If you do it manually, you will have to delete each and every posts which is time consuming. A simple button will be easier.

A delete all posts button might be an idea, but someone could accidentally delete all his posts, so perhaps a restore all posts button (that only works for a month) might also be an idea.

I agree that deleting posts gets complicated when having to take account of scammers covering their tracks, etc. It might be simpler to leave things as they are and let them manually delete each post one at a time. I doubt many legendary members with thousands of posts would want to delete them all.

this wouldnt be the case if people actually used the search function, what the forum need to do is enforce rules against creating duplicate posts and encourage people to use the search function
