Since we see from time to time posts where people ask to get their accounts deleted  , I guess It should be useful to implement this feature.
Deleting the account should not only remove it from forum database but also from Search engines (so he don't appear anymore) , and all user posts should be gone with it. (P.Ms shouldn't be touched as removing them could remove them from the other party inbox as well) .

There's another thread about this.
Deleting accounts should only be an admin-only feature as it can easily be abused (see Quickseller's and hilariousandco's post there).

Also I see account deletion is already a planned feature (Delete members, perhaps including all of their posts) but it's unclear if anyone will be able to do that or just the admins.

I do not support this feature since there are too many scammers out there you could come in and scam people and can vanish just like that by deleting the account,so i do not think this is a good feature to add here

I agree, it would be much more of a problem than a "feature". It's hard enough as it is when trying to link addresses with user alt accounts.
Not only am i against it, but would also rather see deleting/editing of thrads/posts disabled if they're older than a week or so.

That could take shitload of time , I mean imagine If the user has thousands of posts ? that will take him his whole life. Instead , developers could add like a simple button to remove all posts, that could work too. (by keeping posts where It's impossible to delete for security reasons , like Auctions section)

I guess you got a point but still, It's still possible to limit this feature to an amount of users (highly ranked users only) to reduce the abuse of the system.
This feature could also work like Facebook , when you disable account , It will still remain on the database , that way admins could recover it.
Idk really , I'm pretty sure something like this could become useful but probably the design I'm suggesting isn't that good.

people are selling accounts here and scammers can come in any shape or form so it doesnt matter if you are a higher rank member these kind of systems are not possible to implement in a forum,possible solution could be that the admin will allow an admin to review a persons account if he want to delete his account and giving the moderator the necessary privilege

Assuming that deleting posts is irreversible and with taking in consideration that moderators don't moderators scams and don't ban scammers, I don't see what would change If someone delete his posts after scamming someone ? It won't change much.
If It's because whoever got scammed can't proof it , then we could simply make Marketplace section posts impossible to delete. (but most of the deals are made in PMs so It's not an issue)

Trivial case - but a user can't delete his posts in the auction board or if he has started a thread (he can edit the thread though). Plus it would make it easier for a scammer to cover his entire tracks quickly, even if he has been a member of this forum for years.

Idea is pretty basic right now and could be develop so It work just fine , If we implement disabling accounts , accounts should still be in the database and admins or mods could recover them.
As for deleting posts , well It's already available right now, this option simply make it quicker while the deleting each post takes sometime.
