Hi Tom,

I don't think that's possible, i guess if you don't want to use it anymore just log out and walk away.
You never know you might need to come back for one reason or another.

Thank you for answering. This I find strange.

Ownership of personal profile, related comments etc. should solely belong to the individual member. Such a principle is overall normal, and are seen at for example YouTube and Facebook. Lately I deleted most of my posts and comments at the DesignSpark Mechanical forum, simply because I found them to be obsolete.

Mentioned YouTube is a fine example of freedom. You can edit, update and delete your own comments - and you can delete your profile if wished. This is how it should be.

Yes once an hour has elapsed you can no long edit or delete comments here.

I also believe any images of say stamps you've uploaded can then be used by whoever
once uploaded here them images belong to stampboards ( i might be wrong but 99% sure )

Good for you. When I join the DesignSpark Mechanical forum I'll keep that in mind. :lol: :lol: :lol:

They have only 2000 posts in total -- probably as folks like you run around deleting them -

https://www.rs-online.com/designspark/designspark-mechanical-forums?page=212

We have near 10 million posts here. Our boring (to you) rules work well, and theirs clearly do not.

Question answered, and thread locked.
