    You can’t delete your account exactly and you cannot delete your posts but give this a read, follow the link and request a data erasure.

    That will not remove any of your topics, replies or any reviews you left. It will only change your already random username and remove your email from the profile.

    The part you want to find is under “Retention of personal information” and I am not linking to that directly as I want you to read it all first.

    Also please be aware, multiple accounts are not permitted in these forums except in very specific and limited circumstances.

    Give that a read, follow the process and the account you wish to render unusable and anonymized will be performed.

    Thanks, I don’t use multiple accounts, that one is old I no longer use.

    Data Erasure Request won’t take any effect to related sites right?

    Yes, you can delete your account using the below steps.
    Visit your site’s settings page by clicking on My Site (s) → Settings.
    and then Scroll to the bottom of the General tab, and select Delete your site permanently. …

    A data erasure request here is only for the wordpress.org sites and nowhere else. That would include but not be limited to

    https://wordpress.org/
    https://make.wordpress.org/
    https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/
    etc.

    The wordpress.org information is not used or shared anywhere else. Not WordPress.COM or any sites that are using WordPress software.

    @scott984571 Do you mean on this site or your own installation of WordPress software?
