No forum allows you to delete all your posts/topics, for the reasons explained here: http://www.managingcommunities.com/2013/04/29/can-you-delete-all-of-my-posts-from-your-forums/

We can remove all information from your profile and lock the account, but removing posts leaves holes in the conversations of others, which is unfair to their contribution.

Unfortunately, I cannot change anyone's username (even including myself). Just due to the way this forum is setup.

However, given that Nabil is a fairly common name I doubt whether it will cause you any privacy problems. And remember this: in this day and age, there is no way to really remove any trace of your activity, in almost any situation. Yes, you might delete something somewhere, but because there are backups everywhere (even Google backs up just about all web pages and you can visit old OLD things by just saying "view backup") I would always just assume that anything I write, create, or put out there will always exist (it's a two-edged sword -- you can also find old things you might thought were lost).

Oh, and just to finish this discussion -- if you want to still participate here but need another user name, that I *can* do (that's how I actually had to change mine when this first started, as the username I picked was not one I wanted but I couldn't change it).

Perhaps that would give you the privacy you want but still allow you to be part of this community. I don't make this a routine thing to do, so I'd rather folks not ask me for it, but at least it is something I can do.

you can always edit your user profile to remove what you might consider sensitive personal data. IIRC all you need to provide is a valid email - and you can change that!

Nabil,

To be clear, I can't change your username but I can add you as a new user with a different name. If that's what you want, just let me know and I'll be happy to do it, as we do value your participation here.

Just say the word and you'll have "loursbourg" as your new account (the password will be "welcome" but you should change it as soon as you login").
