All you have to do is not use your account, and clear the cookies on your browser (and if you don't do that, then if she ever comes here, it may pull up your history automatically).

Otherwise, there's no record of your use here, save in any emails you may have kept with your members information.

We don't invalidate memberships as a rule here, simply because if a new user posts with your old member name, having registered it for themselves, it can be mighty confusing. So, just doing the above -- clearing your cookies from your browser, making sure you don't have any emails from here -- takes care of your issue more expediently, and without confusion on anyone's part, since we don't mass email members or do anything else like that.

Cookies are temporary files stored on your computer that are used to maintain things like settings at any forums you may visit - for instance, if you are logged in automatically every time you visit Scarleteen, cookies are responsible for that. To clear them, if you're using Windows, go to the control panel from the start menu, and select "internet options". There will be an option to delete cookies - click that, and the files will be deleted. (Sorry, I'm not a Mac user, so I'm not sure how to delete them if you're not using a Windows operating system.)
