Pixoto should have "Deactivate Account" and "Delete Account and Photos" options available within each Pixoto account Profile area so that people can chose one on their own, without having to send an email to Pixoto to request it. This is how many, many websites/social media accounts work and would save the Pixoto members and employees time.

Great idea!

I would take it one step further and enable the deletion of images in bulk.

For example, if I have images in the 0 to 450 range, I should be able to click on a button which enables me to remove these duds.

the reasoning given is that they don't want someone fraudulently deleting accounts.. in case of hacking. you must provide the same email addy as the one attached to the account.

which begs the question... how secure is the site if anyone 'could' delete accounts? what else can they do at present time? so if they allowed anyone to delete an account it may open up all sorts of avenues into altering some one elses account.

Joyce, Facebook, Twitter and other large and reputable social media sites allow one to do it (deactivate/remove) when one is actually logged into their own account as that meets all reasonable security requirements, since one normally uses their email address AND a password to go to their FB/Twitter accounts. And I think many people have FAR more sensitive info and pictures on FB than would ever be allowed here (as Pixoto is just a photo/art social media application). Just my opinion. P.S. And if anyone hacked into an account, they would get the email address associated with it anyways from within the account --just not the password as that is never shown 'as is'. And why would a hacker ask to close an account? That's not how they operate.
