There is definitely something buggy going on with the time blurbs on this topic,

since it was asked "6 hours ago" according to,

https://www.instructables.com/community/?type=question&sort=recent

or "in 6 minutes", according to the page itself,

https://www.instructables.com/community/cancel-account/

and that time keeps decrementing (when the page is reloaded) suggesting it is a time in the future.

...and there answers to this apparently recent question, that are around 5 years old.


...and the topic is about deleting accounts, but it looks to me like the accounts asking for deletion are still there:

I guess these things happen if you start working on several ends at once without having the ressources to complete it ;)

As for accounts itself there is only one I know that works half decent.
Delete you ibles, delete your topic and comments, then just move on.
Like so many other websites now there is no archive option to remove those ancient topics.
Most likely because every account counts.
And having the right to create an account does not always mean you have the rights to actual decide what happens to it.

Just imagine it would work with a click of a button...
All of a sudden this website would be reduced to just 15% of the current content LOL

As per their recording, I went to service@instructables.com and there is no indication of entering my email for cancellation. Any further ideas?

You go to "YOU" (top right corner) and then YOU again and the click on the icon SETTINGS (a clog) and at the right side a box named "unredeemed memberships" where you'll see you membership status and a button "More Memberships". Click on this button and you'll open a page with your membership plan and the option to cancel the auto-renewal. Cheers
