      You'll probably find that while your account can be closed on the SkyUser Forum your posts will remain, this is sadly the way that all Forums have always worked.

      I'm not in agreement that this is the way things should be but the sad fact is if you don't want to be remembered then best practice is to never post anything on the internet.

      Whether or not Forums such as this delete your account and every post you ever made, the sad truth is that 'wayback' websites are taking snapshots and sharing them, whether or not you like that is probably moot because you'll be chasing your tail for the rest of your life trying to shut them down.

      cf: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayback_Machine

      If your account hasn't already been closed (i.e. if you haven't already been told by an admin or a mod that your account has been closed... you will know when you can't log in with your current credentials), i suggest you change your Forum password to something ridiculously long so that not even you know what it is, that should at least ensure that no-one else can pretend to be you by guessing you login details... and remember that whatever you've already posted here and elsewhere will be archived somewhere and cannot be deleted.

      Hope that helps, isn't the internet fun!

      Best of luck but probably better for you to just right this off as learning curve and move on.

      Sorry for the delay... I've kind of been very busy recently.

      All done!

      As pointed out, we leave the posts as deleting them would corrupt the threads and conversations, often making it difficult for people to follow and understand the advice given and in what context.
