    I just realised I have access to an old account from 5 years ago that I'd rather keep using and I want to delete this account... how?

    As you have already won a game, you really can't delete the account.

    If you SEND FEEDBACK with a request, the admins may roll this game into your other account, but that is most likely more work than it's worth.

    All you need to do is go back to your other account and forget that this one ever existed. It won't count as a multiple account unless you play in both accounts concurrently.

    The worst offenses for multiple accounts would involve ratings manipulations. That wouldn't be the case here.

    Just go back to your old account and forget about this one.

    Meh, fair enough but it seems to me that there should be an option to delete your account as there should be (morally speaking) on any online service.

    Your suggestion is practical but I'd rather have an option to hit delete... ah well.

    The trouble is that when you are on here you are not playing with yourself, so to speak. All your games are part of someone else's record so nothing can be deleted. The only way you can leave the site is log off and never come back, not that I'm suggesting you do.

    Gotcha. They should find a way around this but I understand.

    Cheers for the replies.

    You don't need an unsubscribe, just log out and leave the site. Or you could try the Blitz page, link is in the header underneath the log-out link.

    Thanks in advance.
