Request to delete account
Sorry wasn't sure where to put this and could not find a formal method to submit a request. Nothing personal against anyone or anything here. Just cleaning up my online life and going to enjoy it as an observer from now on.

Thanks for all the great info.

changed my email, removed my attachments. I wasn't a super big contributor so don't think I would ever cause anyone to miss out. Just requesting my account be deleted and my personal information removed if any is logged/kept.


freebeard 04-21-2021 06:47 PM

Center bottom of the Main Forum page. "Contact Us"

Happy lurking.

Flashback to FrankLee

M_a_t_t 04-22-2021 01:17 AM

Franklee's profile says he was on yesterday. He doesn't post much anymore apparently.

redneck 04-22-2021 09:36 AM


I think redpoint meant “old mechanic” not franklee. ;)




redpoint5 04-22-2021 12:57 PM

That was it. Losing my mind already.

gone9 04-22-2021 12:57 PM

Submitted request via contact us link at the bottom yesterday. Still able to log in now. Will attempt to log back in later to verify. I also found old mechs thread. Again nothing personal against anyone here and really thankful for how nice everyone was to my very entry level questions and situations.

I’m still waiting for old mechs hydraulic hybrid wheelends

I could use a set for an 80,000lb commercial truck

redpoint5 04-22-2021 07:01 PM

Was he the one with the patented flywheel hybrid idea?

redneck 04-22-2021 07:29 PM



Old mech. had a hydraulic drive patents.




freebeard 04-22-2021 07:58 PM

What's who's got me wondering is Old Tele Man. He shows up in the Ecomodder photo feed, but threads like turn up in the search, but he's not it the thread.

There should be a gone-but-never-forgotten list, separated from the spammers than never make it to 10 posts.

Xist 04-23-2021 04:11 PM

I always nominate Arragonis. Anyone else?

What has HydroJim done for us lately?

gone9 04-26-2021 05:37 PM

Just a friendly bump. I submitted an official request through the contact us link either 4/21/or 4/22 on the bottom. Just verifying after going through the longer than expected list of accounts to close.

Vman455 04-26-2021 07:13 PM

Hmm, I didn't see anything. But I don't know how to delete accounts anyway. This sounds like a job for MetroMPG; you might want to message him directly.

gone9 04-26-2021 07:30 PM


I already edited my account to not be able to send/receive private messages. Does tagging work here like other forums I've used by adding the @ symbol?

freebeard 04-26-2021 10:00 PM

Report yourself as spam? :)

MetroMPG 04-26-2021 10:25 PM

Thanks for the heads up, freebeard.

FYI: when we delete accounts, we'll remove personal info like email, bio, sig, garage, albums etc.

But we don't remove all posts (unless they have specific personally identifying info in them). Because doing that can wreck threads in which other members have participated.

freebeard 04-26-2021 11:49 PM

Well, gone9 is a goner, but can we use this as a teaching/learning experience?

What happens to stuff in the photo feed? Can we release albums into the wiki? I'd want to re-sort my albums. Is there any way to do that?

Frank Lee 04-27-2021 11:01 AM

I'm still here somewhat. Coming up on one year now with no phone or net service. That has cut down my surfing time dramatically, since I now have to DRIVE to a hot-spot.

MetroMPG 04-27-2021 11:10 AM

What prompted THAT move?

Are you getting rid of cars too? Marie Kondo is a terror.

Frank Lee 04-27-2021 11:25 AM

My landline phone/net service was terrible and they were unwilling/unable to fix it AND there was going to be another rate increase! NOPE. Besides, the only calls I got were from Rachel at Card Services and for car warranties- don't miss that, although terrorizing the scammers was amusing.

P.S. No cell phone either. Sometimes handy but not worth the cost to me.

MetroMPG 04-27-2021 11:46 AM

So: a nice bike ride to get wifi? Thus reduced winter posting activity. :D

freebeard 04-27-2021 01:37 PM

Rachel at Card Services really gets around, doesn't she?

My land line plus DSL costs about as much as Starlink. Maybe that's what you need.

Vman455 04-27-2021 06:19 PM

No phone/internet sounds idyllic and nightmarish at the same time. Perhaps unfortunately, I couldn't function at any of my jobs without having access to phone, Zoom, etc., let alone staying connected with family that's spread out across the country.

freebeard 04-27-2021 06:41 PM

'So say we all'

Xist 04-27-2021 08:31 PM

How do I delete someone else's account? :)

MetroMPG 04-29-2021 09:07 AM


Donations to EcoModder can be sent to...

Stubby79 04-29-2021 12:01 PM

That would be funny to watch everyone "prank" everyone else by throwing money your way...would get out of hand in a hurry!

MetroMPG 04-29-2021 01:16 PM

Must be some way to turn it into a an auction...

Stubby79 04-29-2021 01:57 PM

Vote me off the island!

Xist 04-29-2021 03:53 PM

The highest bidder chooses who needs to go or the member with the largest total contract against them drew the short straw?

redpoint5 04-29-2021 07:29 PM

I'll be way more useful and productive in real life once you vote me out Xist. Win/win situation for me.

freebeard 04-29-2021 07:55 PM

I'd be cut off from my life-line to humankind. :( Pick Xist.
