Deleting My account.

  1. Can You delete my profile? I don't want to use built-in WordPress. I will create a "stand-alone" site with it.

  2. Username accounts are not deleted but there are steps you can take that amount to removing all personal information and result in leaving only a throwaway email address behind.

    1. You can go to My Account->Edit Profile and remove all data except the account name and an email address. Create a throwaway email address and change the account email to that throwaway address. This only leaves the username behind.

    2. To unsubscribe from email sent to you from WordPress.com, go here and click on “Block all subscription emails from WordPress.com”:

    3. To ensure the account is locked up tightly, visit this site, generate a password of 15-20 characters, and change the account password to it:

    4. While you cannot completely delete your Gravatar profile, you can remove all of your profile information easily through the "Edit My Profile" page here:

    You can also hide your Gravatar profile from external access. Visit your profile page (click your name in the top navigation of the website), then click the "Hide My Profile" link in the bottom, right-hand corner.

  3. Im trying to delete an old blog, that a previous employee created. I've tried password reset to gain access, but can't get in. Is there a way to delete this account, or gain access to it can be deleted from inside?

  4. Blogs belong to those who have the username accounts they registered the blog under. Unless you are logged in under the same username account that created the blog in question you will not be able to delete it.

  5. The blog owner can transfer the blog ownership to another WordPress.com member who has been made an Admin of the blog in question. http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account
