Deletion by Moderators and Administrators

User accounts that do not conform to the requirement of Real Full Names will be deleted. So if you registered "John" and omited a surname, your user ID will be removed. Nicknames, aliases, fantasy names, false names, fake Japanese names, anime names, etc. will also be removed.

Deletion Requests by User

User requests to delete their accounts will not be accepted. Because the ownership of all posts made by a user would default to "guest" if the user ID is deleted, SFI choses to maintain the user and posts/threads associations for legal purposes.

If for any reason a user choses to leave SFI, the user seeking to not receive e-mails from SFI are encouraged to do the following:

Click the My SFI CP button, which looks like this:

1. Unsubscribe from subscribed threads

In the left hand navigation column, scroll down until you see "List Subscriptions". Click on it.

Any threads you are currently subscribed to will have a check box the right. At the top of the column of check boxes is a single check box that when clicked will select every single thread. Click that.

Scroll down to the bottom of the list. You will see a pulldown menu entitled "Selected Threads:". Select "Delete Subscriptions" and click the "Go" button.

That's it for this step.

2. Disable receiving E-mail from other Members

In the left navigation column, under "Settings and Options", select "Edit Options."

In the second box entitled "Messaging & Notification", uncheck all applicable boxes, especially "Receive E-mail from Other Members" and "Enable Private Messaging"

That's it for this step.
