    I want to get rid of most of my trackers and I was wondering do the staff prefer you ask to be disabled or does it matter and I should just not log in and be deleted for inactivity?

    I had just the same problem with some of my accounts. Everybody told me just to leave them (not to log in) for about 30-45 days. It depends on the tracker - you know that. So, this is my advice

    I personally go the not log in method, but I am sure some trackers will respect your ecision if you let them know and they can then delete the account
    Depending on the site at what level in the staff structure they allow member deletion but I would prob start with admin level

    If you can't use delacct.php, and you ask staff to be disabled ...they often reply : Let it die !
    And you can find the solution in the FAQ sometimes:
    Send a pm to a staff member and tell him why you dont want your account.

    I would say let it die. Just in case 3-4 weeks go by and you regret it. If 100% sure that there is no way in hell you are ever going back somewhere, then maybe use delacct.php or ask to be deleted.

    I would just let the accounts you want to get rid of die and be deleted for inactivity.
    It's the easiest way

    Just add /delacct.php

    to the url of the tracker you wanna try to get rid of... i.e. http://tl.com/delacct.php

    some of them may use the script and allow you to delete the acct

    I'm sure that is the wisest advice. I'm suffering from a general depression and maybe this is just another manifestation of it.
    I just don't seem to have much luck fitting in anywhere.Thought maybe I would just forget it all and stick to being an anonymous member of lesser places.

    Does this mean I can stop browsing site waiting for a pm then
    Also if accounts are disabled they not usually pruned and if in the future you are in a situation you want to rejoin some of those sites you may not be able to very easy

    I've been going through similar thoughts lately. One I thought about dropping one due to a bad policy, but some of the others I just do not have a connection with- and it isn't because they are bad sites. Some are quite good.

    Is this something like when older people who have raised their children and find their needs reduced sell everything and buy a RV?

    Or have some of us just grown tired of external events? Are large numbers of us leaving accounts and not opening new ones? Is this a sign of change in the community?

    Really curious about this. Is this a normal phase that individuals go through or part of a decline in the community? If so, what would a mass change in user behavior mean to the larger BT "world"?
