I am not using this website currently but still get some emails. Is there a way to deactivate my membership or do I have to block the email sender? I don't really want to block it since I may come back in the future

I am on my phone at the moment so it is harder to check, but yes you can be a member and get no emails. Go to your account/name and look at the settings - preferences, perhaps. Scroll down and you'll see some options for emails
Probably someone will come on soon and tell you exactly.

You'll likely be back sometime so it is nice to feel like a member!

Captive!? I'm sorry. I misunderstood and thought the emails were the essential problem. Send a message to @ivar and he will delete your account.
Thank you. I may just block the site rather than start a new conversation for something that should be a click away

Be aware that blocking the website on the web browser will not make the e-mails stop. In order to stop receiving e-mails, you need to unsubscribe from the mailing list. If you want to delete your account (still not sure you have an account as you show as guest), just follow the previous advices and email Ivar and ignore the website from there on.
Just to let you know.

And it is, in fact, a few clicks away. Please don't be unfair.

For personal data stored in the EU there is the "right to erasure" or the right to be forgotten under the General Data Protection Regulation.

But why would you give up on such a worthwhile site..
We live in a free world so people have a choice .

Wish you well,Peter.

Hi all,

I have just set it up so that anyone can now delete their own account without getting in touch with me.

It can be done here:
https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/account/account-details
(Look at the bottom left in that menu).

Thanks!
Ivar
I can't see the delete button in my account - have you removed it again. I have encountered behaviour of a rather pontificating and manipulating nature from a member that unfortunately are one of the top posters so seems to have, for completely mysterious reasons, a kind of high standing in here. So how do I get out of here and my account deleted.

Can someone help Jesper? This question was first asked on Feb 1st. Ivar posted that same day that it is possible now to do it without waiting for it to be done by a moderator.

oh dear! I must have made a mistake! I thought it was Jesper who wanted to delete his account. Forgive me Jesper. I need to wear my proper glasses!
Edit:
Covered in confusion... it was jesper and he clearly succeeded. I got confused because I had not noticed that the op was a different person.

Gee, I have joined various fora over the years. I never quit one. I just stop going to those websites. And if I had originally set up my account to receive email notifications I just change my settings.
I do think it's nice that I get a happy birthday email every year from a tiling forum I participated in when I was building a new shower. 😊 It's a nice reminder of the community that encouraged me to do it myself.

And there is always the "ignore" button if somebody has a problem of the postings of one particular member, no need to leave the forum, just hit "ignore" and you never see a posting from that person again ...

I personally prefer the "ignore" button. It is the opposite of the 'like' function. You can effective tune a person out. I have not use it yet, as I value all opinions, but it is nice to know it is there.

If you 'ignore' someone, is it discernible by the person being ignored? I wouldn't want to hurt someone's feelings.

If you'd never see a post from that person again and, since each post is numbered, what does that do to the number sequencing in the thread?
