I'd like to delete my account if possible - if a mod could do that I'd be grateful

 

Thanks

I recall vaguely that Roy can make an account go poof. I think there is a sort of hierarchical post delete but I don't think it removes posts quoted within other posts. On the other hand I may be simply flashing back to the late 70s. :wink: 

Later,
William

I think one of the mods said they wouldn't be doing this anymore and and members should just stop posting if they lost interest.

2 posts including this one hardly amounts to much anyway:wink:

It is incumbent on the data holder to remove any personal details stored when a request like this is made.

Account deleted.

I think ALL forum softwares have to have this inbuilt now because of Data laws in various parts of the world. I know my new TIMEX one has it, and three days in and I've had to use it to rid a troll! :bash:

'twas a bit of a bludger to find it.  I also found I can set folks who go inactive to auto delete after set periods of inactivity - - must go and post some more - - - or I'll auto delete  (painful :yes: )

Who was it? I don't recall seeing "Guest" active... :biggrin:

Just been through the logs and it was a member called :  GoldSpanner

They were only a member for two weeks, first I've seen of this, I was not involved so do not know the reasons why.

So I guess this forum doesn't fall under s36? It is also a bit of a minefield given that one may ask for an account to be deleted, yet it seems that it's only if the site itself started posting data pertaining to the individual that they have a right to have it removed. If they publicly post the data themselves then it gets a bit iffy. Last I read you'd be required to delete the account, i.e remove his name etc, but there is no requirement to remove user posts as they chose to make that publicly available, not the forum management. 

I'm most likely wrong though, the government certainly don't like people to understand their laws, that wouldn't do them any good at all.
