Wait, you can't delete your own account? Only the CAPTalk moderators can delete it? That's not cool... ???


One of life's lessons: The internet is forever.


The internet is forever, but that doesn't mean I shouldn't able to delete an account that I made. There was no massage saying 'once you join CAPTalk, there's no going back' unless I missed it. It's fine if the posts stay, but accounts should be able to be deleted if desired. That's not right in my opinion.


My 9 step process for deleting your account:

1.  Go to the "Change Password" function
2.  Open "Notepad"
3.  Bash keys randomly
4.  Copy random key bashing
5.  Paste into "New Password" field and confirmation
6.  Save new password
7.  When browser asks "Would you like to save new password?" say "No"
8.  Close Notepad, if asked to "Save" say "No"
9.  Never return to site.


That's too much work, I'd just skip to 9...

Here's how, but I don't think you would want to do it this way:

So, to be clear, if I go on a bender of posting long crazy rants ... ?
You guys won't delete it all for me when I sober up?

Well, if Im not mistaken you can actually go back and delete posts.  But its pretty bad form.

Actually you can't. And editing to just a period doesn't make the mods happy either...

There is about a 15-45 minute window for editing. Useful for punctuation/spelling updates and minor addendums.
