how to delete instructable account? Answered

I want to remove my instructable account, but i dont know how. Can anyone help me?


Email service@instructables.com and tell them that you would like your account deleted.

The bit about wanting to leave purely because it isn't easy to leave.

Or wanting to leave at all.

How do I delete my instructable account

For the simple fact that this site does not have an available "cancel or delete account" button is the reason I want my account deleted. Even with Facebook and Twitter you can easily delete your account.

You want to leave purely because it's not immediately obvious how to leave?


Lol. I don't ever see you use smileys or anything like that, Kiteman. But yeah, what was said doesn't really make sense.
"For the simple fact that this site does not have an available 'cancel or delete account' button is the reason I want my account deleted"

Just because you don't get emails from HQ, that does not mean nothing happens - every Flag gets investigated by a human being.

As for the so-called "suggestive picture", I would respectfully suggest that filth is in the mind of the beholder. All I see is cheeky humour.

I tried service@instructables.com NOT WORKING. I want to cancel membership.

You do need to send that email, it just won't be instant (it's a human-monitored address, and it gets a lot of traffic) but can I ask why you want to delete?

What's not to want?

How do I delete my account?

See Randofo's comment above - click on the word "message".

Beside every comment you have posted, you should be able to see a "[delete]" button.

Could not print a pdf; stated I must be a pro. I clicked the 3 month button, when it should have been just a month. I only wanted just one article. How do I cancel the three month and make it just a one month?

I don't know how I got signed up on here but I noticed a payment taken out of my account for this site. Can you please email me and let me know how this happened and let me know how long the subscription is for, etc? I will probably cancel but need to know how it got started in the first place. Thank you.

See the very first comment (above).

Will people please stop asking *me* to delete your accounts?  I do not have the authority to do that.

You need to send a PM to Randy or email the site: info [at] instructables.com

To help us improve the site, could you also include in your message the reason why you would like to cancel your account?

Thank you.

. OK. Since you refuse to delete my account, will you please change my username? TIA.

Some people seem to be abusing their powers...

Hello, I am here on behalf of my sister. She is unfortunately deceased. She passed away 4 months ago and I am just trying to clean up the last few bits and pieces that need to be taken care of now... I've been going through computer sorting through memberships, etc. and I came across her membership here. Is it possible you could please remove/delete this account? Many Thanks, Regina B. Phoenix, AZ

We are all sorry for your loss. I have passed your request on to the appropriate admin.

 I really don't understand why this instructable account has to be deleted. Just make the new one and never use this one...

I want to delete my account too so your not the only one I like to delete mine too so let me know when you know how it dosent envolve the site the site is good really good I just made a mistake... so if theres a way let me know

thank you kiteman I needed that its becuase some poeple thought I was a boy... its really annoying for awhile I mean seriously sammra means Science,Astronamy,Music,Math but I dont like math anymore so thats out the window :P

Don't delete it. If you want to stop using the site for a while, do so. The account will still be waiting for you whenever you decide to come back.

Why do you want to delete your account ?

Maybe you could send a message to the staff ?
