User account deletion
Closed, WontfixPublic


It'd be nice if user account could be deleted from within the user profile.

Please note that I'm not seeking support here, but suggesting a feature to improve the software and maybe avoid some legal issues for the project.

I'm going to close this as this is really more of something that has to be dealt with upstream - deleting accounts is something that MediaWiki doesn't handle in single wiki installations yet, so until an appropriate solution has been dealt with upstream for a single wiki, we can't really develop a way to do this without breaking wikis. You can read about this more on

What we are doing is rolling out the DisableAccount extension as suggested upstream at some point in the very near future.
