    You can't, you can only go back and delete every post you ever made one by one and then stop using your account. Bit of a flaw in the website design there...

    You don't, unless you want to go through all of your posts deleting each one individually.

    with great difficulty, employers don't care about TSR as they often never heard of it

    Pick a random social science, claim it's rubbish and there will be such a response the mods will have to delete your account for your own safety. :^_^:

    You can just ask to have your account banned.

    Would that be the same as having your account deleted? Or would your profile, threads and posts remain?
    Your posts and profile remain (unless you delete them yourself), you just can't access your account any more.

    So getting banned doesn't really have the desired effect and would be rather useless. :p:
    Yes, I was suggesting it as an alternative to breaking the site rules to get yourself banned, as was suggested earlier in the thread.

    This is why you should never use your real name as your username.

      You have three options;

      • Ask for a username change - which will get rid of your real name. You must have a good reason for a change.
      • Ask for a permanent ban - your account will no longer appear under the memberlist.
      • Delete all your posts yourself then ask for a ban.


      Post in Ask a Supermoderator to talk directly to mods or initiate one of the above actions. http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=93

      Are they allowing username changes again?

        Username changes are now possible again, but are only approved in exceptional circumstances.

        I would go for this option.
