You can only delete posts if someone has not posted after you. Otherwise, you’ll need a moderator to do so. Unless you have a specific reason for deleting posts other than altering your post count, it’s unlikely we will delete them.

Could I possibly delete my whole account and start from fresh?

If you would like your account to be deleted, make sure you meet the "requirements" and follow the steps detailed here.

So if I ask to get my account deleted, I will get a warning? I just need and might need to soon to delete my account for personal reasons which I do not like to really explain out. I will rejoin but probably after a month or so. I hope this makes sense?

Also, when I do come to rejoin, am I allowed to use my same old username if it has not been used already?

if you ask to have your account deleted more than once a month, it may result in a warning (which means it will not be deleted again), so please make your decision wisely.
you won’t get a warning unless you ask to have it deleted more than once a month.

I won't not at all do this often, this is probably a one off but I will think about it.

Yes, you should be able to return under the same username provided nobody else registers it after your account's deletion has been confirmed. However, if your username is taken during your hiatus, be forewarned that we don't delete or rename accounts for the sole purpose of releasing taken usernames, therefore we can never provide guarantees for usernames remaining available. As an alternative, we could reserve your username until you return.

That sounds good! Who should I contact to reserve my username when I do return to make a new account?

I'll probably see to that if you go through with having your account deleted.

A few options for when you return or are ready to return:
1) You can inbox me on Facebook and I'll remove your username from the disallowed list so that you can register it.
2) You can register an account with a temporary username, then request a username change either on the thread itself or via private message to any active administrator or senior moderator (Anduril, wolf567 or Koa).

Thank you! You may lock the thread, thanks again for the support! :D
