Deleting a blog

  1. I had a blog, http://xkavx.wordpress.com/ but unfortunately I cannot remember the e-mail and password towards this account.
    I would like it removed as I haven't used it for years and don't want people to view it.

  2. You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for blogs hosted at WordPress.com. If your question is about a self-hosted WordPress blog then you'll find help at the WordPress.org forums.

    If you don't understand the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, you may find this information helpful.

    If you forgot to include a link to your blog, you can reply and include it below. It'll help people to answer your question.

    This is an automated message.

  3. ...WordPress doesn't delete blogs, only you can delete the blog. I've seen Staff give hints to lost email addresses (re: "it was a gmail account" or "[email redacted]), so I'll add a tag so a moderator or staff member can help you out.

    But, basically, you'll need the email address associated with the account, or the API number.

  4. ...but you might have a case based on your About page. I think the TOS makes 13-years of age grounds for suspension.

  5. It's too hot. This is from the TOS:

    The Website is available only to individuals who are at least 13 years old.

    So your only hope is finding the email address, and resetting the password, or finding the API key.

  6. If you don't have access to your account or forgot the password, you can request a new password by entering your email address here:
    http://wordpress.com/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword

    Please follow the instructions carefully. You'll receive an email during the reset process, so make sure you read it for imhttp://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/deleting-a-blog-19?replies=5portant instructions. If you don't receive the email right away, check your spam folders as well. The confirmation email can get caught in them sometimes.

    As previously mentioned, to gain access to a WordPress.com account, we'll need one of the following things:

    * An email from the email address on file for the account
    * The API key associated with the account

    There are several WordPress.com accounts that have Administrative access to the blog you listed above. If you can recall who had access to the blog that far back, I would suggest reaching out to one of those users and requesting they help you with deleting the blog.

    To permanently delete your blog, please follow this guide (once you have access to the account):

  7. Please help! In 2009 I set up the following blog http://www.nelisakala.wordpress.com/ for a friend. We have both moved on and she has become a public figure - the blog is outdated and a bit embarrassing to her now! All passwords and info were sent to two email accounts that are now inactive and both of us dont know the password! How do I delete this blog without access to any recovery email addresses and/or passwords?? the link is being quoted in magazines like Cosmopolitan and she is so desperate to have it removed asap! Thanks

  9. @tallent - you were answered here: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/deactivate-my-account-1?replies=8

    Starting multiple threads with the same questions only confuses and irritates people and wastes resources and really does not get you help any sooner.
