    Rule 12 Needs Amending

    Okay, so I ran across rule 12, as everyone who reads the forum rules does. However, I hope that it can be amended to where that only the original poster of the thread can ask for their thread to be closed/removed. Take a look at this one. At the end of it, the moderator says the thread was closed on request of the OP.

    So can it please be amended so that we forumer's can have a little more clarity?

    That one was a good reason to close, rather than just OP request - people are supposed to use it only 5 days for the QMT questions and answers, then say if they want to be the next one to have a QMT, but in that case people were still adding to it even though there was a later QMT already running (so a correct place to volunteer to be next, which that thread no longer was). So letting it go on past its time was just creating a mess and confusion.

    Rule 12 says nothing about closing threads, only about removing threads or accounts.

    We also don't close threads just because the OP asks, there has to be more reason than just that. There have been numerous occasions where the OP has said a thread can be closed now, but we have left it open.

    But rule 12 does need amending, because accounts can now be removed on request (though not by moderators, only by using the new link at the bottom of the page). This was introduced due to the new GDPR regulations in the EU.

    So I was wondering since a Long time that What in the world does this "Delete Account" link does? I even clicked on that but it directs me to private message.


    So what will happen Actually? If somebody requests Account removal? Simple Ban or something else?

    Thanks for the explanation. The mod that got my question can now ignore it (more ).
    That one new link puzzled me when I saw it, was about to send a friend request to that member that joined on 26 January 2018

    Can't have wondered for much of a "long time" since the link has only been there for 3 weeks.

    The account will be removed. And yes, the link sends a PM to a special account, monitored by the forum admin who will then delete the requested account completely.
