How to Delete a Newgrounds Account


Newgrounds is a website on which users upload, play and review Flash-based video games, music and movies. These Flash files usually have minimal system requirements, and you can access them in your browser. Despite the low requirements of Flash-based files, programmers can use the Flash platform to generate high-resolution games and videos. Many new forms of Flash technology emerged on Newgrounds, often submitted by amateur programmers. A Newgrounds account lets you save favorite files, post reviews and upload your own programs. The site isn't for everybody, and you may want to pull your account off the site at some point.

  • Log into your Newgrounds account. If you do not remember your password, click "Forgot Login" on the main page to have your password emailed to you. (See Reference 3.)

  • Click "remove" to delete any uploaded files that you want removed from Newgrounds. Deleting your entire Newgrounds account can take several days, so it's best to remove any uploaded content directly from the account screen beforehand.

  • Contact a Newgrounds staff member using the staff directory page, and request that your account be removed. (See Resource 1.) There is no way for users to remove accounts directly, but Newgrounds staff members are able to delete accounts from the system. In addition to requests for account removal, Newgrounds employees monitor site activity, deleting inappropriate accounts and those that violate the terms of use. Newgrounds staff members are busy with site maintenance and monitoring, so don't be surprised if it takes several days for your account to be removed.
