In order to delete your forum, you can simply go to the Recovery Console
) for your forum and you can delete your forum
from there. The username for the RC is the original name of your forum
(such as "test" for 'test.freeforums.org) and the password was one that
was emailed to you when you first created and activated your forum (it
is auto-generated, so this is not the same password you've selected
yourself). If you have forgotten the email with the password in it, you
can use the 'Reset/Forgot Password' link to have the password reset and
emailed to you. Please keep in mind that the RC is linked with the
original email used to create the forum with, so you will need to check
Please note that we do not manually delete forums ourselves by request,
if you are not able to do the above then it is recommended to just
disable the forum and abandon it and it will eventually be removed for
Also please note that if you have any subscriptions for upgrades, that
you must cancel them separately, as they are not canceled by the
deletion of your forum. If you are paying via PayPal, you can cancel the
subscription from the re-occurring payments section of your PayPal
account, and if by credit card, then you should be able to cancel them
from the Upgrades tab in your Admin Panel.

YOUR WEBSITE IS SO ******* AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I deleted the forum from the RC page as directed below, AND NOW I DON'T HAVE A ******* ADMIN PANEL TO LOG IN TO TO CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION, AS DIRECTED BELOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I go to the support page, as directed below, assuming I will get the support I need, but no, I HAVE TO CREATE ANOTHER ACCOUNT JUST TO ASK A QUESTION, EVEN THOUGH I ALREADY CREATED AN ACCOUNT AND PAID FOR A YEAR'S WORTH OF SUPPORT?!?!?!?!?!?!
I ******* HATE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS!!!!!! WHY IS THIS SO ******* DIFFICULT?!?!?!?!
Please tell me how to cancel my subscription without access to my admin panel, WHICH I NO LONGER HAVE!!!!!
If you had any sense of customer service whatsoever you would just make my life easy and cancel it for me, then send me confirmation. As I am almost certain that this won't happen, when you do reply, could you please give me specific, intelligible steps to take so that I can cut your shitty website out of my life forever?
If I have one more single problem taking care of this, I will make it my personal crusade to let anyone and everyone know how ******* terrible your business is.
