anybody knows how to delete the posts/threads that you have written throughout the years?

Hi Alev,

Members do not have the option to delete their own posts and threads. But they do have the option to edit their own posts in the first hour of posting. All this is done mainly to maintain the flow of the discussions in the forums.

To add to what Hien said, if you'd be able to delete threads, you wouldn't just delete your own posts, but also the hard work which people put into answering you. Additionally it's assumed that old threads remain helpful for other people who read the forum, giving answers to their questions before they've even asked them (especially those who come via search engines).

If you've said specific things in old threads which you now regret, you could contact an admin through the contact link at the bottom of each page to ask for them to edit out that old information. (Although you should note that this won't ever really remove the information from the internet. All kinds of other websites (such as the internet archive) have copies of what is being posted here.)
