    Is there a way to delete EDAboard.com account?

    Hello , I don't think I would be able to contribute much to edaboard.com and would hardly be using the site. Is it possible to delete edaboard account. If yes, I would like to do so.

    I don't see the purpose of deleting an account, you can just stop using it.
    Is the purpose of deleting the account to remove all prior posts?
    Please don't make requests for help in private using PM. Create a thread in the forum so that other members can benefit from the posted answers.

    Privacy must be respected. If a user wants to delete his account because of confidential reasons then he must be given the option to do so. As per the removal of "all prior posts", my answer is "partially yes". Its sad edaboard does not allow users to edit posts, after submitting them and if somebody has already replied to it.

    "Privacy must be respected" - but you are posting on a public forum! Anything you post is not private.

    As for the editing of posts - you can edit them for a while to correct mistakes but we have had instances of people editing past posts to completely remove their original questions. This destroys part of the purpose of the forum because other peoples questions and answers can help other people with the same or similar problem. The objective is not to ask your question, get the answer and then remove all trace of the original question.

    If you don't want your request for help to be public, don't post on public forums.

    By allowing people to edit posts after they have made them we end up with threads like this:
