Roommate is tick off

Hi ... For some reason every time my roommate try's to post he has to get mod approve . Now he doesn't want to be a part of this great forum and wants to cancel his account . How does one deactivate ( close/cancel ) their account ? So I did more research from within site and found out only one account is allowed . So if a person rent a room in a house and make an account with this site the rest of the people living in the house can't . Even if they are not related / friends ( upstair and downstair folks ) sharing the same internet service ...

They don't cancel accounts. As for multiple from one ip, they have ways to verify if it's the same person, or different people.

That's odd that one can't close their account . Though I'm more curious how they can tell if its the same person or not ?

No they don't.

They can perm ban the person, but deleting the account screws up the board stat's. Thus why they don't delete.
I've been told they have methods to detect who's who (users agents strings, maybe?) but others on here say they don't.

I do apologize to your roommate. We are facing an issue with users coming off moderation after their first post is approved. I have submitted the ticket to the development team to remedy. I do hope that it will be resolved fairly soon as it is an important.

I can deactivate your account for you, just let me know if you would like this done.

If your roommate and yourself both have accounts, it is perfectly fine. This goes if 4 people in a house share the same internet service. We have our ways of finding those who have two or more accounts.

Again, I do apologize to your roommate for this inconvenience and situation.
For all community related matters, please PM TomRFD

Tell your room mate to post in this thread :arrow: why-do-all-my-posts-need-approval-1193782/ I know you are trying to help but you aren't giving any relevant info like his username or the "notice" seen, so the admins can actually take him off moderation....

He not here now but I watch him did post in this thread . In my last post I was just referring to how you can tell if one has more then one user name but even with that method its not full prove ... Nowadays people use other people laptops / tablets and what ever else they might have , just using the same isp and devises doesn't make it were one is the same as many account users ...

We manually approve all new posts right now for new users. What's happening is that new users are supposed to come off moderation after 2 posts and a glitch with the last forum upgrade is preventing that from happening. Those who have posted in the thread I linked, the admins are manually changing their user group to take them off moderation. If he didn't break any posting rules then his post would have been approved and I don't see a new user post in this thread... :confused:
