how do i delete my macrumors account?
Going to work for Apple, are you?
Whats wrong with signing out and then not coming back? Pretty much the same kinda deal.
ask a Macrumors God to delete it for you.
I would think that you would need to contact one of the admin to do that as I see no option in the User CP.
Is that a requirement?
You have to sign a contract that says you can't participate at any Apple Rumor forums sites for the duration that you work at Apple and one year after leaving Apple.
Wow... I'm gonna be ******. I love MacRumors...a lot.
Looks like I need to talk to a Mod soon as well.
I wouldn't, who's going to know?
Start calling the gods names, they'll get mad at you and make you vanish.
But with so few posts, simply asking them to close the account and modifying your visible personal data in your profile should work...
You'd be surprised how much Apple know.
You don't need to close your account the terms of the agreement are that you can't participate, meaning post any info. It doesn't really matter, how would anyone find out, or care as long as you don't post pictures of the next big thing.
Anyway you can keep your account and you can read macrumors, you just can't post.
It is only partially true. You can still participate in the non-rumor sections of the forums, including Current Events, Politics, Marketplace, and the help forums.
I have many friends who work/worked for Apple, and they were still allowed to come here, so long as they didn't identify themselves as working for Apple, and did not comment on actual rumors.
USA: Land of the Free, as long as Apple approves.
yeah i'm really only ever in the Mac Basics & Help helping people out, and occasionally in the MBP/PB & marketplace forums.
and thinking about it...for them to stay someone can't go on rumors sites is like them saying don't use the internet these days...
OMG, are you saying we have Quislings in our midst??
Yeah, I mean as long as you don't post in rumor threads you should be fine. I bet that Apple has employes that spend the day combing these type of sites, so see there are Apple employes posting on rumor sites. Come out and reveal yourselves!
Do they have a rat-fink reward system??
How do I delete my MacRumors account?
just wondering in case i need 2
you don't. can't.
if there is an issue with your account, talk to the admins via PM.
You're trapped here. There is no escaping the Mac world.
No, i WILL find a way out.
I've merged your threads as per Forum Rules, we ask that people do not create duplicate threads on the same subject. Thanks.
And PoD is correct-- PM an admin in the event that it's much too tempting to simply not log in to your MR account.
they're just protecting IP just like any other business. good luck OP with the job
A lot of Apple employees read & post to these sites, no doubt.
I doubt if many of these instances are "flagged" by Apple, but if there was an information leak they certainly would have a history of all external comms, though there are ways around that..
They're not going to fire anyone simply for browsing/participating in this site, but if your project was leaked to the public and your history shows you frequent rumour sites, it's a handy clause for them to have in the contract which means they can easily terminate you without having to prove you leaked the info.
