How about the ability to delete your account?  I believe every site should give the option to remove your account completely.  The ones that don't allow this should be sued or forced to give the option.

Wut? I don't even get why people would want that in the first place, but suggesting suing websites for not having it? Seriously?

No. I disagree with that way of thinking. It's the internet and each website is it's own nation. You can't simply or easily force them to do anything. The french have been trying to sue and legally censor websites for a while now. They couldn't actually force them to do anything. Sueing for anything and everything is one of the many reasons why americans are ruining their own country. If I were a member of the website staff, I wouldn't add that feature just because of what you said. :D



This is some excellent news. So it appears VGChartz is no longer the ugly stepchild to Brett :P.

It's also one of the reasons that a lot of people don't like Americans.

Shame a mobile version isn't higher up on the priorities. I'd of thought that would be most important based on how most other sites are thinking. I guess vgchartz doesn't get a lot of traffic through mobile.



hoggin' all the action, I see...

Personally, I'm just thankful that ioi is even thinking about a mobile version! Up until this thread was made I thought ioi didn't even give a damn about that!

I believe that if you make an account with any company then you should be able to delete that account.  You brought up the French but I believe you meant the Spanish with their efforts to get Google to remove bad things said about people from their search results (or you could be talking about the French too).  These are companies not nations.  Nations can tell companies what to do (especially when it comes to the internet: China).  What I am talking about is different.  This isn't a negative news story that I'm trying to hide from search results.  This is about being able to control and remove accounts to websites that you signed up on.

Sure some sites might make it hard to delete your account (Facebook, with their default option being to disable and you have to dig around to find out how to delete account "entirely").  You can latch onto the sue part and try to make yourself look better (get off your high horse if you ask me) but the fact is a person should be able to remove themselves from a site and not just some bullshit permaban.  An individual should have the right to remove themselves entirely from any website that they sign up on. 

Let me rephrase my first statement so it doesn't look like I am sue happy American. 

Nations should make laws that allow users the ability to leave a site and remove all trace of their account.  If companies fail to comply then they should be sued until they comply.



@sethnintendo: I don't know if it was you or someone else who asked for the same thing some time ago, but I remember that the answer was that it couldn't be done (at least here) because your posts are tied to your account and deleting it would remove all your posts.

That's why not so long ago when a usr was banned, all his posts were removed by a "(this user has ben banned)", remember?
