No option to delete the Discourse account

There doesn’t seem to be any function/UI to delete an account. This would seem to be a hard, legal, requirement, in particular as the site stores personal information (independent of the OSM web-site).

It’s possible by sending a request to the forum @admins

Usually this is done and user posts are anonymized.

I see a button in my profile preferences where it seems to be possible. Is that the one you are looking for?

As per the linked thread, it seems as if you only get that button initially.

An admin would still see the red „delete“ button in that case.

Interesting. I just checked on the Manjaro Linux Forum which is also using Discourse and the button is missing as well.
