Ok. If it's decided to revert back to having to be requested, then I think it should be written somewhere that that is how you do it. Else people'll just abandon their accs not thinking about that possibility. Like most probably have done in the past.
But how do you mean it scheduled? That it's done when the load is light on the site anyways or something? However that is done though, why not let the "delete" button just mark the acc for deletion, like if it was requested. And then just not show them to others, and delete all marked accs at the next time it's "scheduled".
