I sent an account closure request on April 20th. Over half a year later, it's still here. I then clicked the "Delete My Account" link a few weeks ago, but again, it's still here. Is there just zero moderation going on where this is concerned? Am I ever going to get this account deleted?

Last I heard, the account deletion tool was more or less automatic and did not require moderator oversight.

I'll take that. Someone needs to check it though, since it doesn't seem to work.

Does the send an email request thing hold true anymore? I understand patience, but an eight month wait is making me think that it's just not going to happen.

I cannot find the Delete button for the new site version anymore...

Strata is saying that there is not a away for artists to delete their accounts on their now, so the "send email request" does not hold true anymore.

The delete button is under 'My Settings' on your profile page.

--does this mean that delete button doesn't even matter too? Is there a reason why this can no longer happen?

Sorry, I really need to stop typing so fast. I meant to type that there IS a way for artists to delete their accounts on their own. The email request does not hold true because you used to be dependent on administrators to delete your account. Now, you can do it yourself.

Since you found the "Delete My Account" button under "My Settings," on your profile (thanks for that!), that is indication that you can do it yourself. Just log into that old account (if he has not been deleted already), and manually delete it with the "Delete My Account" button.

I see about the email request then. I did mention clicking that "Delete My Account" link in the first post though--it hasn't worked. I was merely logged out with no further explanation, but was able to log back in after seeing that my account still existed.
