Exclamation How to DELETE your Cosplay.com Account

I pose this question to anyone, administrator or general site member, who knows how to delete (or knows someone who can delete) cosplay.com user sites. I would like to get rid of my cosplay.com control panel (i.e. be able to erase my site like, for example, Xanga.com and Facebook.com) since I no longer want to be under the current name I am now due to privacy reasons. I have tried asking administrators and other users several times now, but I seem to have gotten little help from that. Therefore I posted this thread in hopes that someone can help me out a bit in any way, shape or form. It would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thank you,

Well, for one, you'd need to post this in the Site Administration subforum (directly below the intros and just above the photography) as they will be looking there for issues and site questions, not here. ^_^

Second, do you really need to delete the account? Couldn't you just delete all of your images and profile and set up a brand new account? I don't think that would be a problem...

As much as people would like the option of account deletion, it's not available. Same with name changes; they don't do it.

Just log into your account and clear all the personal information. Wipe everything blank, including gallery images, then save it. Then you can change the email address linked to that account to something gibberish, and save again. Then you're free to use your email for a brand new account, and your new account can contain as much or as little personal info as you like.

I think Admin is the only one who can do that for you, so you'd have to PM him with the request and be patient (as he's super busy, as you can see).

If you need it done asap, then you'll have to follow Taipa's suggestions to eliminate your information, and perhaps still also PM him anyway to see if he can delete the username as well, if it's important to you.

Previous threads about deleting profiles/accounts:

There's a few more, but they all say the same thing (i.e. PM Admin).

Send a PM to Admin and an email to admin AT cosplay.com from the email account under your profile, both requesting the deletion.

Thank you all, particularily you Mr./Ms. Administrator. And I appologise if this has caused any irritation or disruption. I have personal reasons for requesting this (which I will notify you with, Administrator) and I will follow through with all of your advice. Thank you once again, everyone, you've all been very helpful!

In addition, maybe there should be a separate sticky for this? I've seen the questions a few times now, and one single sticky post would save some effort.

Why would you need it deleted until the browser you use gets fixed? That seems kinda pointless..Just wait for the fix then sign back in again..
