Hi there, can I have everything I posted from June 20th 2014 to May 30th 2015 wiped? My apologies if I'm setting anyone a task, I just don't have any interest in retaining some old work and have it linger over me. I'd have done it myself, but there isn't a delete button, and old posts don't seem to allow edits.

Cheers.

Yeah, sorry. That's too big of an order for us to undertake. Are you sure you can't edit? I was able to go back to a post of mine from six years ago and edit it.

If you are that worried about old work, make a new account?

Fraid not, whenever I go back and edit it gets as far as "saving..." before interminably halting. Seems like I'll just have to keep ahold of it until it inevitably disappears down the internet's memory hole, which is fair enough.

I've had that issue happen to me in the past and a quick refresh of the browser fixes my ability to edit. Could try clearing out your cache or something, maybe even try another browser.

Post over a certain age do get soft locked for regular users. I don't fully know why but it could just be some residue code that gives you a time frame to be able to edit. In theory, there's no reason why many people would need to edit a post from 6 years ago.

In regards to wiping out the equivalent to a year, that's a hell of a lot of work. The way we hide posts is by individually selecting and hiding each individual post. The odd one or two posts are fine, a thread is easy (although I do hate thread deletions cause they can never be retrieved), but I always cringe whenever someone brings up a menu order of posts because it can take half an hour or more to remove a dozen posts. It's just the load times that slow it down, and if you hide the wrong post it's double the time to undo and redo...
