first off, i'd like to remind you that i'm not here at your fucking beck and call. it's not my job to say 'how high' when you ask me to jump. so take your shit and stow it; if you want help don't insult me.

now first off, i haven't gotten the user self-delete back in place yet. i got a lot of shit on my plate to do after the upgrade. all i can say right now is it's on my to-do list.

second, why do you want to delete your account? did someone disagree with you? did someone offend you in some way? unless you have a really good reason to delete your account, my advice is to grow some fucking balls and act like an adult.

in the meantime, if you want nothing to do with StP, just go to your account settings here:

https://squattheplanet.com/account/preferences

and uncheck all the boxes under email options. you'll never hear from us again.

Sorry to offend you. I just wanted to disappear quitely. No nobody disagreed with me or offended me. Just going through a rough time mentaly and withdrawing. I was talking to myself the whole time on this thread. Didnt mean to offend or upset anybody.

On topic, if I deleted my account would all my content be deleted too? Itd like to know I can permanently wipe everything I've contributed to stp in the future.

no, sorry, we don't do that here. enabling this possibility would literally 'swiss-cheese' threads as threads and posts were deleted.

for example, if you created a thread that someone responded to with something very useful to the community, that content along with the entire thread (created by you) would disappear since deleting the first post in the thread deletes everything in the thread. this is done because otherwise the thread would be 'headless' and be orphaned data in the database and that's always a bad thing (can really mess with a website).

also, even posts that you created (in threads you did not start) would create 'gaps' in the conversation, somewhat ruining the archival value of a message board and making some conversations in the forums make less sense.

we DO offer the ability to 'anonymize' your data in accordance with GRPD laws (sp?) of the EU. that means if you delete your account, the user name will be replaced with 'deleted member #' (see sole survivor's avatar and user name now). all your identifying data is removed (profile, email, avatar, etc). but your posts remain (under the anonymized user name). this does not remove user @ mentions or other people typing your name in posts or in quotes.

Happy seed day, sucka!
Heading back out again today. Gonna millaround the Rockies for another five days and then I’m headed east towards Chicago!
Hitching out of Coos Bay today. Goal is to get up to Newport, switch over to the I-5, then up to Portland by the day’s end.
Wow its been two years since i posted I've lived in a few cities since, but I'm living in santa fe now.
I am sorry for not updating! I ended up getting back on the road for REAL, leaving downtown LA via a bus to Barstow Friday night. Since then I have hitchhiked 5 rides, explored Flagstaff AZ, and am now near Albuquerque, NM. I’ve already learned so fucking much, made countless memories, met other tramps, ridden in a truck bed on the highway, and just been fucking blessed by the Universe.
Spending the night in Coos Bay. Hoping to be in Portland.
Just had 3 wisdom teeth pulled, my mouth should stop bitching all the damn time now... Pain meds? What're those
