I have to keep asking because there has been no response.

I think any website where you have a registered account, should have the option to delete said account. When the time comes to retire from the internet I would like there to be options to close my affairs.

Your retiring from the internet? Why?  The Eurogamer review of Wii U is spot on.

Well I am tired, not just of internet life but of real every day life. There are lots of things that irritate me online and in everyday real world life, overeactions, hypocrisy, dependance. I feel like I need a break from everything. But also I am concerned about data protection etc - for any website, I want the option to delete my account. I can delete my own reviews, blogs, posts, threads etc. But should there come I time I want to nuke my account, I would like the option to exist.

I don't want to sound ungrateful to Yoda, the site works really well technically. The people on the other hand..... cheeky

One does not simply retire from the internet.

Why would you want to delete everything you ever wrote online? Why not just stop visiting whatever place or places you used to frequent or whatever? Why 'retire' at all from the internet? Just stop using any accounts you ever had. Retiring from the internet is like no longer watching tv. Where would you get your news or your entertainment? Once you delete all that stuff then what if you want to return later on? Everything would be gone. What if someone like me decided on saving all your blogs, reviews, etc. only to repost all that stuff and mock you about it? Nyaa

I've never hated you Bear, you've probably thought I hated you but I never have. I find you very like-able.

Steel on the other hand...

His medical advice is substandard! angry My poor stomach.

I know you are far too lazy to do something like that. cool

Retiring from the internet doesn't mean not reading news. But it would mean not posting.

File this under the completely pointless, but why not category:

In the games completion megathread, each time they complete a game, they get a plus one.

Can we get a button at the top and bottom of the screen to instantly scroll the page right to the top or bottom. Like neogaf on a tablet?

Would it be possible to get an auto splitter tool for news updating headlines?

The character limit means I have to manually cut/paste long headlines between the headline and subline boxes. A button which will auto split it (without breaking whole words) would make posting news a lot easier for me.

I have a great suggestion. Whenever we change pages on the site can we get the Transformers transition and music sequence?

Do we have or can we get a universal clock for the site that stays the same no matter where in the world you view the site from? Is that what the UTC clock is for? If we have then online meet ups can be easier.
