No, not for your own projects.

See https://wiki.phpmyadmin.net/pma/control_user

that article says that the phpmyadmin sets the pma as a controluser, and that user has permision to modify the configuration features

Yes. But is not necessary for your own projects. You even dont need a phpmyadmin, this is only a tool, not part of the Xampp Infrastructure.

There is nothing you

delete or change. If you want to see your table you will probably want to keep using phpmyadmin or else use Adminer. Which means not deleting the user pma.

We both are.
IF you are dealing with database related things, you will want an interface to help you such as PHPMyAdmin or Adminer. HOWEVER, if you are not touching the database at all you don't need phpmyadmin in which case you could delete the user pma.
It all depends on what you plan to do and how much you go into the database.

I don't see any reason why the user pma should be deleted.
Why should anybody want to do that?
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

It's like porn for programmers 8)

let me clarify it.
I firstly asked if i could delete pma without having problems in my database.
Nobbie wrote that is not a problem (...for myown projects). That does not mean that a project of mine doesn't have a database connection.
Then mark.mcdonald said if I want to see my tables i have not to delete pma.
Maybe Nobbie wanted to say ''projects except databases''
Finaly what the pma is for?

He probably mixed it with the "root" user. You DONT NEED pma user (i dont need it as well).

That is explained in the wiki, the user is provided for some sophisticated analysis on your tables and database usage. You only need a "root" user in order to administrate your tables and databases.
