    - Moved to General Discussions -

    Mods can permanently deactivate your account (banning...) if you really want that. And the administrators are able to free up your username so someone else can use it in the future.

    However, if you're asking this because you want to remove all your previous posts, we normally don't allow this because one of the purposes of this site is to archive all the conversations so they can be of service to future readers. Feel free to contact me if you feel you have a special reason why this shouldn't be the case, but in the past we haven't made many exceptions to people who just want to erase all evidence of them being here.

    Why not suggest to the admin to rename her username to "GuestJenny1"

    Thus, freeing up the username "Jenny" and preserving her posts, (I am assuming the user is a female) while at the same time (if it came to it) making it so that if another "Jenny" was to make the same request in the future, would be modified to "GuestJenny2".

    Just a thought.

    If you stop using your account, and act like it never existed, then there's no reason to delete your account. (Unless, of course, you happen to have hard feelings against this site/community, in which case you should grow up. But I'm not saying that is the case.)

    My money is on the possibility that her one thread was a homework assignment and she fears that a teacher might make an association between the assignment and her first name.

    It's just a hunch, but it's as good as any.

    You are probably right

    I wonder how many professors actually drop by here to check that stuff.

    I don't think the OP needs to worry about that negatively impacting her grade, especially if there is no (optional) homework lab for the course. Maybe she's overreacting.

    We agree! Please?
    Hmm, that might be a bad idea.

    Why is it that the thread just continues on with jokes and other non-related stuff and text and discussion?
    The original question was answered: just leave the site. Now this thread has done its job, IMO.
