How do I delete my Minecraft Forums account?

Introduction

Minecraft Forum account deletions are something that we prefer to avoid because it removes content from the forum that may prove valuable to other members in the future. However we can perform account deletions if necessary! If you are experiencing a problem with the forum (for example unwanted emails, or there is a specific post you would like removed etc.) please let us know and we can help you with that problem.

If you would definitely like your account removed the following options are available to you:

1. Disable Account

A disabled account is anonymised with a username change to MCFUser123456 and a generic avatar. A disabled account can be recovered at any time (by creating a new support ticket), this is the best option if you expect to return to the forum in the future, as you will not lose your posts, private messages or subscriptions.

Note: If you want the profile information removed make sure to remove that manually on your profile page before we proceed. We are no longer able to remove this information in our control panel. 

2. Disable Account And Delete Public Content

This will disable your account and delete all of your posts and threads from the forum. This option is best if you might want to return in the future but do not want to have a presence on the Minecraft Forum for the time being. This option can be reversed in future by creating a support ticket.

Note: If you want the profile information removed make sure to remove that manually on your profile page before we proceed. We are no longer able to remove this information in our control panel. 

3.Delete Account And Delete Content

This will permanently delete your Minecraft Forum account, along with all of your Minecraft Forum posts, threads, subscriptions and private messages. This option should only be used if you do not plan on returning to the Minecraft Forums. This cannot be reversed. 

Once you have decided on an option:

Please contact us on our support portal to proceed with deleting your Minecraft Forums account. Make sure to include the account you are requesting this for with the correlating username and email address.
