Hi, Safira.

It's our policy that we don't delete posts that have received replies. What I can do is edit the post and the reply to remove any personally identifying information, such as your name, school, etc.

A software update a while ago broke the "Account Deletion" function, and our engineers have determined that there is no easy fix for this. We plan to replace all the software that underpins the site, but it will be some time before this happens. If account deletion were working, it would remove your profile, along with any pictures and so forth you posted there, and would assign all your posts to "Anonymous", but would not remove them, nor would it remove your name from within any replies which quoted your posts. I can, if you like:

  • change your username to something generic.
  • delete your picture.
  • ban you, which would make your profile inaccessible to regular users, but might trigger a warning message that you had been banned if someone clicked on your username in your post.
