Solved Can members be dis-allowed to delete themselves?

Post by Yima Qwin on November 25th 2015, 7:49 am

Is it possible to make it so users cannot delete themselves? I have had some in the past do so in order to post nasty messages and am concerned that may happen again.

Hi there,

It is possible by going into the following steps.

Admin Panel -->> Users and Groups -->> Users Options -->> Members -->> Allow members to unsubscribe (check no)

They still can unsubscribe from your forum. There is a link that loads a page where you can unsubscribe from a forum.

That is unfortunate. I have it set the way you said Draxion; at this point have I done what I can because if that is so then this can be filed away.

Hello,

Yes if you set the setting Draxion told you about above, you have done all you can as an admin to prevent users from deleting without your knowledge, however, as SLGray pointed out, there is a webpage on the forumotion website that can allow one to delete their account any forum. Forumotion does not promote this page and there is no link to it on your forum, to know about it one would either have to research it or ask for help here. Bottom li e is forumotion can not force someone to keep an account on a forum on its servers, it is required by law to provide a means for an account to be deleted, thats what that webpage is, sorry we couldn't help you get a 100% clear cut solution, its just not possible.

-Brandon
