Every now and again, we’ve had users ask us to anonymize their Forum account. Account anonymization is the process by which we scrub your profile of personal information and assign a randomly-generated username. It’s preferable to outright deleting accounts, as it minimizes disruptions to discussion topics.
It’s about time that we have this process properly documented, including what information is covered by anonymization. For more information, see: Account Anonymization.
A similar message will be included in the next #meta:forum update notes as well.
