I understand that members aren't allowed to have multiple accounts on AF. However, if I were to create a new account and never use this one again, would this be okay?
I wish to create a new account and use that instead of this one; I have my reasons for wanting to do this, but they are very personal.
As far as I'm aware, I'm not being cyber-bullied, nor do I have bad rep, and I've been a member of AF for more than 3 years, and have made some great friends during my time here. I wish that I could have done more to contribute to AF besides making casual threads and uploading the odd bit of fan art here and there; and I still have many ideas for AF and so much more to give but...
My current account no longer represents me anymore--and now that I look back at it as a somewhat born again person, I feel depressed just looking at it. Changing my username would make no difference (though I've tried); for the issue lies with the content associated (which supposedly cannot be deleted) with my account, not its profile.
I have read on AF that staff cannot delete accounts; so I'm requesting permission to create a new account in exchange for never returning to this one. If granted, I will be sure to clean out my current account properly, so that any (authorised) member who wants to use it can do so. If otherwise denied, I will respect the staff's decision, but be prepared to say my goodbyes and never legitimately return to AF.
Should I not return, please understand that my decision to do this was not done out of spite for any staff or member; there is no "sympathy card" or "friendship test" here. For reasons I cannot fully explain, I just find my current account, and especially the content associated with it to be an ugly reminder of a person that I no longer want to associate with. With a new account, I would finally be able to wash my hands of this "person", once and for all.
