Clear 'My Postings'?

  K.H 20:48 26 Nov 2003


The 'My Postings' option on this website is getting really cluttered up, and i was wondering if there is any way of cleaning it out?

Unfortunately there is no way of doing this.

Well never mind.

thanks for your help VoG

Just register again under a new name.

I had thought of that but this would inflate the number of Registered Users. I'm sure PCA would'nt condone that.

has always struck me as a pretty pointless operation. What anyone gains from it is beyond me - apart from being able to disguise themselves even more.

From time to time we prune the online side of the archive, and in fact we did it a few days ago. It helps to keep the page loading times down.

I would like all my posting to be run through with a giant spellchecker/grammar/stupid postings remover device, or just delete them. :-)

Can i be renamed:

Forum Editor - Junior?

Unfortunately, Powerless, this position is taken. 01:21 27 Nov 2003

I found this thread after the green tick. The 'My postings' link can be usefull at times but in the main, serves no purpose beyond the last two or three postings made. I do not acknowledge update information any more with 'Cheers mate', not through bad manners, but to stop my postings getting cluttered.

Although it is a handy feature for some, I think it takes up unnecessary server space.

Quick answer for Pesala: I have changed my user name a couple of times, but never re-registered. This is a trick used by other forum's admins and moderators to bump up their member tally (no names mentioned)!

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
