May/Can I remove my account/footprint from this website?
« on: July 23, 2016, 07:59:22 PM »
Just like the title says, I'd like to have my footprint from this website removed.
Not that I hate this website or so, I'm very grateful for how you guys helped me in the past with my problems.
It's just that I don't want my posts on this website to be found whenever someones googles me.
It would be great if it's possible.

Thanks in advance,
Arunesh

#1 You have been here since 2013, have all of your post until now since then and now you decide to remove your account/post in 2106.

I would have ask you...

a) Why now and much earlier?

b) And as well as why/what you are trying to hide?

For example your non bogan IP Address that you showed in one or more screen shots.

Your profile including all of your post http://forums.pcwintech.com/index.php?action=profile;area=showposts;u=171964

#2 Honestly as as far as I know, you can not.

1) Because I've recently searched myself online and found my posts on this website to be one of the first results.
2) I've got nothing to hide. I want my account to be deleted because of my poor grammar and knowledge (I was pretty young when I posted here for my issue) are showing in my posts, I basically want that if anyone googles my main username, they won't think anything bad about me.

And because all my threads are locked/archived, I'm not able to modify/delete them.

Depending on the search engine, they maintain a cache. So if were it was possible, the other users who search your user name could see the cache.

I give to you one single example, because I feel like it.

Ok, good to read/hear. :)

All users, even my self, started off as a newbie.

More than likely, since they started off a newbie too they won't think anything bad about you.

If they do, you can say what I saying to you (or something like it)

OR you can ignore the troll(s) if you believe that they are trolling.
