    Hello,

    I’m sorry, but on the site https://wordpress.org/ due to valid technical reasons there is no way to delete accounts there. And please give this topic a read. At some point in the future deleting accounts may be possible but for not it isn’t and there’s no time line for that to happen.

    For any GDPR concerns, read this informative topic.

    It is not that we are being obtuse or difficult or that we do not want to delete your account. But due to the way that the different systems are connected on that site we are (painfully!) aware that it breaks many things. It has been attempted in the past.

    I’ve examined your account and there is nothing there that is personally identifying you. The email will never be shared with anyone. If you do not want to use your account on https://wordpress.org/ please simply abandon it.

    Thank you.

    NOTE If you mean this account:

    Then reply back here and I will block your account with a note to this topic.

    Hello I am trying to install wordpress from A2 hosting and it says the website is taken apparently from this account. Is there anyway I can get it going either by uninstalling or deleting this account, and installing it from a2? or by integrating the a2 hosting from this account to be able to upload theme and start working on it. Thanks

    Hi @theprettyandsimple,
    Your WordPress.org login and your A2 hosting accounts are not related in any way. I think you need to liaise with your hosting providers to resolve this.

    Hi @anevins am not asking you to delete my account but would it be possible to delete links that I have posted on these two topics?

    Topic 1
    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/toc-show-up-on-sidebar-but-not-in-contents/
    I would like to remove the link that points back to my site in “Attached is the link of my current site: link.”

    Topic 2
    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/scrolling-issue-18/
    I would like to remove the two links in the first post.

    They certainly contained identifying information and I would wish for them to be removed. Also, by removing the links they would not affect the learning of this community since the first post can be understood without the links. Also, for the second post, I have asked for the mods to remove it as it currently contains no information of value to the community.

    Thank you.

    @ferryavb, See our guideline on editing posts: https://make.wordpress.org/support/handbook/forum-welcome/#deleting-editing-posts

    Yours is not an edge case and if you want a second opinion, find us on Slack under the #forums channel: https://wordpress.slack.com
