I need help to delete some old posts. - September 14th 2013, 01:30 AM

Can posts be deleted? Like, if I linked to old threads I no longer want up, can you delete them?

A family friend found some posts I made, and they were personal. I no longer want them up. I'll link to specific threads I want closed.

Better yet, can I change my username?

Please.

As said in our code of conduct:

& our terms of service:

We do not remove posts or delete accounts upon request. If you're worried about friends or family finding your account, you can change your username & remove any personal information off your "about me" page. But that's about it. Sorry we can't do much more.

Okay.

Nothing was horribly personal or anything, but I feel embarrassed!

Yeah, I've been in your situation. Just change your settings if needed. Maybe make sure your profile is only viewable by members as well (although posts can still be viewed by anyone). I guess just watch what you post from now on.

Generally posts can't be deleted. After the 24 hours a post has been up, it's there forever unless we determine it's breaking the rules. It basically states here that TH doesn't delete an account or content because of regrets.

But yes, you can change your username! You can do that here, but choose a UN wisely, you only can once every six months.

I'm just going to close this since everyone else is going to say the same thing. If you have any further questions about this or feel it should be reopened, feel free to PM me.
