Okay

do I just not write 'delete me' on the account i wish to keep?
 
I'd say so. And even if deletion is initiated, I think you have a 24 hour grace period to stop that from happening. But a mod/employee would have to confirm that.

I've come to the same conclusion myself, having had both dogs and cats most of my life. What a dog will do to say 'Hey let's play!' is what a cat interprets as 'I'm gonna cut you!'. Basic miscommunication, I'm sure, is a contributing factor. — morganpdx Mar 25 at 0:24

@Unihedron shouldn't you totally drop that and use PowerShell instead?
 
@Unihedron If I'm in the right place, these docs seem sparse.
 
There's more, scattered across the domain. It's like a scavenger hunt of doom, as there are five pages demonstrating a method, but those five pages requires decent hunting to find.
 
@Unihedron That's a bummer.. looks like it's been three years since there was any dev activity, too.

@LynnCrumbling yea.. but i dunno, the questions are all basically asking for spam. I'll leave it to mod to decide what punishment if any to give.

@Undo We've not found any evidence that prizes actually increases participation in these things. It would be convenient if it did.
 
I could try it, but knowing how few people get on GL meta the post would get very little attention, and what it would get wouldn't necessarily be very fulfilling. The GL users are a strange bunch.
 
@Frank The site needs a change then. Invite your friends!
 
@Frank The first step tends to be very informative on that point. If nobody suggests topics, the challenge just dies out there.
 
@Unihedron Well, I refer people all the time, and they never show up.
Part of it is, they find it easier to ask directly, as chances are I'll be the one who answers it on GL.
@JonEricson It is a good idea, and there is no harm in trying. I'll try to remember it sometime when the traffic drops.
@JonEricson did you see the site self evaluation? It was biased and most of the questions it picked were answered by me!
