Is there any way to delete an unwanted user variable from the database? For things like surveys, once the purpose of keeping the record doesn't exist it would be nice to reclaim that database space.

Answer

You can set the variable to "", and use a while loop to iterate over the user records. Then a repack will reclaim the space.
