Is there a way to Delete my Forum Profile? I do not need it anymore.

I could not find when I looked for the “Delete Self” button.
Ask forum admin to click Delete on your account.
Dont delete yourself, I STILL NEED YOU!
does not work ?
This forum leaks members!
I think you’ve signed on for good. Thousands of years from now your
profile will remain. Some poor unsuspecting person may even find it and
send you a pm in his/her delusion. That’s the beauty of this digital
age. Nothing is ever forgotten. It just goes on a page further down.
Imagine the epic zombie threads a thousand years from now.
yea I don’t know why forums do not have delete buttons. I guess 50yrs
from now I can read my monumental historical moments in the Internets
DevMaster is a freaking trap! :surprise:
No, seriously. I think if you speak in public, i.e. with spectators,
than it is unnatural to disallow people making transcriptions of your
speech, i.e. when you speak publicly, and later regret something and
cannot delete anymore, then I’d say this is tough luck. Be more careful
next time, or just be a tad more anonymous.
I suppose…. I assume that the data retention was in the fine print of
the privacy accept button when I first signed on. Anyways doesn’t matter
for me I just wanted to find out if its possible to delete profiles that
I haven’t used for years.
Actually deleting data is usually not something you want to be able to
do in a database. What should happen to all the posts and threads you
have created, which are linked to your account? The usual practice of
‘deleting’ yourself is simply erasing all profile data, set the e-mail
address to firstname.lastname@example.org and mail
yourself a new password.
Yeah, I could delete you (all your posts would remain but simply be
labeled “Guest”), but .oisyn’s approach sounds better.
