There should be a way to remove yourself from your party. Also, how about deleting your account.

I would really like to be able to leave my party and start a new one! I'm in a completely different state/household now and can't do anything other than give up the username I use everywhere.

I'd really like to be able to delete old characters. I hate that they're just sitting there.

You can ask your Dungeon Master to exile a character to effectively remove it from the party, although I agree it'd be useful to have the option to exile yourself.

Exiling a character does not remove them from the party and does not allow them to join another party. The character's name is stuck tied to the old party no matter what. There needs to be an option to leave parties in case someone moves out of a household and goes somewhere else (Kids moving out of their parental house, for instance) so they can keep the stats of their old character and bring it into the new household. There also needs to be an option to delete a character. How many zombie accounts do you think you have on your site? Seriously, do a check up on how many accounts are accessed infrequently or have not been accessed for years. There needs to be a way for people to delete these accounts if only for database cleanup, if not to open up their usernames again for themselves or others to use. I have one account which is stuck in a highly inactive group of people, some of which I do not even have contact information for. This is not a setting in which I will want to continue using your site. I need the option to leave my current party, or delete my character. It is about the most requested topic on this getsatisfaction site of yours.

Yes, but the DM can't exile himself. Mean that if the DM wishes to join a new party, they have no choice but to create a new profile.

I found it useful to make a "mule" account as the original dungeon master. That way you could remove people from the party as necessary, including yourself, in the case of changing parties. I don't really know how exiling works, though, as I've never seen the need to do so, so maybe it would not be as simple, but this is the best thing I can think of.

I got exiled by my DM, so that I could reuse my account for a different party, but don't get access to the join party tab (it still shows the old party) so I can't create a new party with this username :( help?

I feel the option to leave a party is incredibly important. Some people may leave a household and want to join another (leave old party, join new party). I don't even think most people would mind losing all of their progress as long as they could keep their Username. Please make this option available in the near future.
