...your login details if you wiped all cookies? I just wiped all cookies off browser and still when I go to the site, it remembers my login details. I thought websites/forums remember you from cookies?

PS Whats the best why to delete cookies? I went to tools on the latest version of FireFox and wiped everything, but surely it hasn't wiped all if a forum remembers my login details?

Is their another way to delete cookies, thanks.

Is your browser set to remember passwords?

Firefox will remember your username and password

Tools - options - security -untick remember passwords if you don't want this feature.

Sorry - I was thinking while you were typing!

I see, so it isn't the forum that remembers the password?

The reason I ask is, I want to sign up as a new member, and I don't want admin to know I am a old user.

I'm not banned but made a fool of my sen and want to reinvent my character :)

So if I delete cookies and change ip, will they be able to detect me?

Under My profile on PCAdvisor Home page, there is a box can be ticked 'keep me signed in unless I log out'.

Yes.
You can update your profile on this forum by clicking on 'my profile' and changing your user-name. But, don't bother - we have all said things on here that we regretted afterwards.

We all say and do stupid things.

Its better to apologise and get on with life rather than to look like you have "slunk away" ortried to cover up.
