Disconnect GradCafe from Facebook

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I want to delete my Facebook account, but I created this account using my Facebook. Is it possible to disconnect this account from my Facebook or do I need to make a new account?

Thanks in advance!

I need help with this too! I created this account via my Facebook, and even though I don't have my real name displayed here, if I do a search on Google with my name + "thegradcafe" my profile "ViralCapsidGuy" comes up...which, of course, I do not want!

@Moods, @ViralCapsidGuy

I can't find a way to remove the integration, so I would suggest the following:

1) Create a new account with standard registration(email)

2) Merge old account with new account

3) Update new account display name to your old account name(if desired)

I tested the merge on a test server and it appears to work. However, there may be issues and I can't guarantee everything will transfer properly since I've never done it on a live server.

I don't anticipate a loss of data(content moved over fine, but I'm not sure about rep, sig, etc). I can set this manually if we collect it before hand. For instance(@Moods is 49) and I can set that on the new account manually if needed). You may want to keep a copy of signature and other profile data.

PM me if you would like to go forward with a merge.
