Hello, I would like to delete all my posts within all the forums, but I have no idea how.
Wait what? You can't really delete your threads and replies. Why would you want to do that? Your questions and answers might help someone else searching for the same topics.
I would like to be forgotten. Can I at least have my posts about my video game projects deleted?
You can't delete your post. Only mods and admins can.
However, you can edit your post and erase everything.
You can ask for them to be locked, and they'll fade away into oblivion because they stop appearing in the "new posts" sections.
You can "Report" your own post, and ask it to be deleted if there's a very good reason for it, but generally moderators will not delete posts on request, because it interrupts the flow of the topic and confuses people who see the thread later. For that reason, they will usually leave the posts there, although they can lock the thread on request if you were the thread's creator.
That being said, there's no reason you should want to disappear or be forgotten. Don't devalue yourself like that! You're absolutely worth something - worth a lot more than anyone who would tell you that you're not. You deserve a voice and a place in the world. We'd love for you to stay and to keep hanging out with us on the boards.
Please do not encourage members to do this. It can really mess up posts where crucial information is now missing because someone went on a rant and deleted everything.
@Rudostan Next time (if there is one) please do not go through and deleted everything. Just ask for it to be closed.
