Allow users to delete themselves

vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (1 vote - 4.00 average) Installs: 39
Released: 06 Apr 2002 Last Update: Never Downloads: 1
Not Supported  

This one was requested by Webhost. Personally I can't see the use for this, but a hacker's gotta do what a hacker's gotta do.

Anyway, this one is really simple.

First, create a new template named "deleteself" with this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Now open the attached text file, and add the code from it to member2.php right after this code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That's it. Now people can go to member2.php?s=&action=deleteme, and if they click Yes there their profile (and the rest of the data associated with that user) will be deleted.

I put in a nice 'done' message, I'll post a screen shot in a minute.

Actually that's pretty frickin swift Chen! I get at least 4 or 5 "delete me" messages a week. Thanks man, going to install it now.

I think I may add a mod that either allows them to prune all of their posts at the same time or set the username of those posts to "Unregistered."

Sweet, thanks! Will save me some time.. I have it setting all the posts/threads to Unregistered instead of their username since that seems a little more like deletion.

If you have my Karma, add in:

$DB_site->query("DELETE FROM karma WHERE userid=$bbuserinfo[userid] or whoadded=$bbuserinfo[userid]");

not sure about this one.

on my website, if someone hacked into someone else's account, and had this feature, they'd delete everyone :-P

but that's my two cents vBulletin is probably pretty hard to hack too

I was about to say the same, I am not gonna install it myself and its down to the individual if they wish to install it but it does prove as a problem for those who do manage to hack into peoples accounts. It happens frequently on boards I use and the option to delete yourself would be so attractive to hackers, some might even start hacking simply to delete a user they dislike

Why not create a hack that back's up users and all their info?
...wait, already created just use the backup--d'oh

But still, if you made something that allowed users maybe in their profile to select an option that allowed, incase anything happened to their account, it could be backed up. Then there could be some nifty interface in the admin area that contains all users who were deleted and who choosed to have a backup, and all their backups are located there. Where the admin can choose to backup/restore a user to the point before deletion, or just delete / mass purge back ups. In order for it to be a recent backup, all that would need to be done is right before the user deletes themself or admin deletes user, a backup is created (if the user choosed to have a backup). The difference from this and the regular backup Sql dump, is that its easier (with an interface), and that not everything is needed to be backed up (although I'm aware the other way you can do the same, but this is more organized..i think)
YOU know what I mean?!?

Damn..I'm getting way into this, and it probably wouldn't even work...but, maybe If it did, I just created a hack I could possible do?!? .....nah, I'm not that great at php/mysql yet to accomplish such a huge task. *eagerly awaits response by Firefly*
