Title: How can I delete my account?
Post by: sunshinefiasco on June 13, 2013, 01:45:14 am
I think I pm'd a staffer several weeks back, though I may be mis-remembering. What's the process (and also, shouldn't this be added to the FAQ)?

If you like we can make your account inactive.
As for deleting not so much.

Why can't you?

I can delete your account if that's what you wish.  We don't typically do, even in the case of bans to avoid users deleting their account before we can trace their IP and such.

It's very useful esp. in cases where a user tries to send spam PMs or threats.  It has happened, so it's an extra measure we had to take with the volume of active users on the site.

Just send me a PM and I'll go ahead.

Title: How to delete my Waygook.org profile?
Post by: KalashnikovMV on July 20, 2014, 10:22:20 am
Hello fellow Waygookins

Is it possible to delete my waygook.org profile?

I set up this profile more than a year ago, on my wife's email address, she wants to get her own account now on her email.

How will I go about to get her, her own profile name and profile?

Thanks

You have 0 posts on your account, other than this post.  You can just PM a moderator or myself normally, but since you don't have enough posts to PM, just let me know here if that's what you want and I'll go ahead.

Please don't delete your account.  Your English is fine.  Please send me a private message and tell me what kind of work you do and I will try to help you with your problem, ok?

Arsalan, the post this commenter is referring to is here.  The OP was simply asking for advice on dealing with a co-worker, but others starting making rude and unnecessary comments about some very small English mistakes in the post.

I don't know how admin deals with stuff like this, but I hope something can be done.

Thank you.

Thank you very much. . I just thought that this site is for all foreigners because that is in the introductory remarks of this site. Maybe I misunderstood because my English is very bad and it did not passed the criteria of this site. It was also my fault because  I assumed that my english is good enough to be understood. Thank you for the good and not so good comments. I learned a lesson today. I assumed too much kindness from everyone but I felt the hostility of others instead.

This makes me very sad. You're welcome here, please ignore the loud minority who are saying these things. Some of them are in similar situations to yourself (bad work life, not enjoying Korea), and they come on here to vent their anger. It sometimes results in things like this.

Your English is fine, people make errors on here, and this board is filled with people teaching English. If we can understand you (which we can), it's good enough for a public forum.

Oxenaries, I can see very easily that your English is fluent and I was easily able to understand everything you said. You just made a very few small mistakes that indicate you are not a native speaker. You should be proud that your level of English is so high. People were unnecessarily rude, and I guess they just assumed that everyone on Waygook is a native English teacher. However on reading your full post I was able to surmise that you are not an English teacher, and that you are a foreigner working in an office setting in Korea.

People on Waygook can be very mean and negative at times, and I don't think you should take it personally. You reached out for help with an issue and some people gave you good advice. Please just ignore the rudeness of a few of the people who posted replies. People can be horrible when they have a keyboard to hide behind!

Waygook should welcome all foreigners in Korea, not just English teachers.

Hey, I've been trying to delete my account for weeks now. I've PMed every single moderator at least twice. I know Aslan is laid up at the hospital, but not one moderator has even responded to my messages. It seems like Taeyang is the one who's in charge of this kind of thing, no?

What gives? What does it take?

That and recent events that make me less trustful and less than enamoured with the site. The moderation has succeeded in being both way too much and not nearly enough.

Waygook.org user Donovan, just over a year ago, the waygook.org TOS were updated to include this clause:

Quote
Removal or Closure of Content
...
- All content posted is considered to be under public domain and freely available. As such, staff will not delete any content whatsoever in order to "deactivate" an account.

This was, of course, not announced by anyone, and goes completely against the precedent set over the course of the existence of this site, which has seen many waygook.org users choose to delete their accounts.

Thank you, Based, but I’m not asking them to delete all (or any, for that matter) of my posts, though I would certainly invite them to if they wished. I’m just requesting that my account be deleted or deactivated or whatever they would like to call it (as this thread shows they have done for countable others). I would hope that they could also give me the name  “Minsu” when they anonymize my posts, but I’m trying not to make things too complicated! I’m also still searching for the part in the TOS where they reserve the right to ignore basic correspondence with users over their account maintenance. I have no idea what the situation is with Aslan currently, and If it’s become serious and people are distracted, I understand (and would even be sympathetic!), but even that little bit of information could be communicated by one of the Hairy Chests, I’m sure.

It has been nearly a month now and not a word from any of them... :huh:

NB Oops, weird. Someone made it so whenever you type m-o-d it gets auto replaced with “Hairy Chest”.  Apparently they have been busy attending to some Very Important Matters of Immediate Concern. :undecided:

I didn't really want to make a public announcement about it, but I've been trying to delete my account for weeks. Multiple PMs sent. Can someone please just delete it? Thank you.

Is this because of our Bauhaus/Love and Rockets flaming war?  It did get out of hand, but I blame the mods for not stepping in.  Good luck.  Thanks for your travel tips.
