How to Abandon my NOOK Community Profile (Stop Emails)

Version 1


    • Q: Why is deleting my account from the NOOK Community not "1 click away"?
      • A: As with any online community, there is a constant balance between system need and user demand.  From a system perspective, NOOK has a vested interest in retaining conversations (good/bad/otherwise) for historical reference, as well as to maintain a level of transparency with our community.  Part of retaining these conversations is to retain author attribution, which is violated when an user account is fully deleted (removed from the system).  This is one of the primary reasons that NOOK allows users the ability to effectively their account.  It preserves conversations and author attributions, while reaching the end-result for the user, which is abandoning the account It is our hope and intent to retain all members that join the NOOK Community; however, we recognize that deciding to stay with a community is a decision that every member must make.  Should members wish to leave, our goal is to honor their request in a responsive and respectable manner.  If for some reason your experience does not reflect these principles, please do not hesitate to contact the moderation team at
