Help:Account deletion

From Team Fortress Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

While the Wiki Staff (even administrators) are unable to fully delete accounts on the Team Fortress Wiki due to limitations of the software, users that no longer wish to have their account publicly present on the Team Fortress Wiki may request a deletion of any self-made content created and/or uploaded within their user space, including their user page. This request should be made on the talk page of an administrator.

Users may also request their edits to be hidden in the edit history tab (when the account name is explicitly mentioned within those edits) and/or have their account renamed to DeletedUserXXXX and permanently merged with an anonymous account.

These tasks can only be carried out by administrators.

I have concerns about my personal data

The Team Fortress Wiki does not collect any personal data aside from the email address used to sign up with, if provided; your email address will not be shown publicly at any time and is also anonymous to the staff and administrators. Users can remove or change their email address under their Preferences at any time, located in the top-right navigation menu.

Your IP address is logged and may be looked up by administrators in case of suspicious activity, such as block evasion or sockpuppetry.

Is it possible to delete my account even if I no longer have access to it?

No. Unless you're able to confirm your ownership of the account, we are unable to fulfill your deletion request.
