    Unable to contact site administrators Tdol and Red5 - anyone can help?

    Hi All,

    I was a member on this forum 13 or 14 years ago and some of my very outdated postings are still available for everyone to view and these postings show up in google etc. I feel I am not happy with this and would like to delete them, however, I am unable to use my old credentials and login to this forum. I tried to reach administrators via the contact form but there was no response. I have registered a new account hoping I will be able to contact someone and I have found Tdol and Red5 but again there is no option for me to write a private message hence I am starting this thread. Can someone let me know how to get in touch with these guys or someone else please? I will explain them my concerns in a private talk and I hope they will understand the reasoning behind my wish to remove some on my very old entries. Thanks a lot to everyone who can help.

    Kind regards,
    Alex

    I've moved your thread to the Support Area.

    Have you tried using the "Forgot password" tool with your old account?

    Secondly, even if you or we delete your old posts here, you must realize they will be somewhat visible on the internet forever. Someone somewhere has an archive and some search engine can find it.

    If you put the username here, I can deal with it. I will delete the post with the name afterwards.

    That's got to be a first! Welcome back! I wonder how many sites can claim this!!

    Let us know what we can do to help? Either send us your old username (as Tdol suggested) or drop a link to the threads in question. Here's a link to the contact form: https://www.usingenglish.com/about/contact/
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    I have hard deleted the thread, which removed it from our servers. It will disappear from search engines when they update their cache, which they do regularly. If someone finds the thread via search and clicks on the link it will now take them to page missing message. You can see the result here.
