    From previous requests of this type I can tell you that it is unlikely. Your 9 posts are enshrined for posterity

    hi Abdul,
    Mod: Your request has been brought to the attention of Admin, however it is unlikely that any pre-posts will be Deleted.

    The best way to rid yourself of this account is to simply walk away, and let it age into obscurity. Such is the way of the internet (and not just AAC).

    Why open a new account? What is the goal? If you want to change the username, an admin can do that for you.

    In general, we do not delete content unless it violates the ToS/UA.

    Besides your username, you can change all of your other personal information yourself (including email address).

    On the blue theme, click on your username. Then, click on account. Since this is a rare task. I had to click on several links to find what could be changed. But it’s there. If you need help finding what you are looking for, post back here. Just let us know if you use the orange theme or blue theme.

    Here is a sample page for my account.

    UPDATE: Which reminds me, seeing my profile. I need to update my profile :rolleyes:

    Also note that if content is deleted for the purpose of hiding attempts to cheat on homework or other such things, we will restore the content and ban the user.

    I'll ask again: What is it you are trying to accomplish? You said you want to create a new account. WHY? What is wrong with your existing account? If you would tell us, we can probably fix it. Why do you want to delete all your content? This is HIGHLY frowned upon. What you post becomes part of the context of the thread in which you post it -- deleting it messes up that context and it can cause lots of confusion for future readers of the thread. Deleting content just because you wish you hadn't posted it or because it has already served your purpose is not a good enough reason.

    I doubt you tried all the settings. Because almost everything personal can be changed.

    I asked you to identify what you were looking to change (besides username). I said we would help you discover how to make a change.

    Maybe you didn’t understand me. Please respond to the questions WBahn and I asked.
