Currently, there is no way to delete more than one comment at once, but I see that you have over 13k messages that you want to delete and doing that one at a time would be crazy. If you give me a couple of days I could come up with something that could delete them all at once for you if that is something you are interested in.

Well, I went ahead and made it just in case you want it. It is a little more hardcoded than I would like, but I am lazy. All I need to know is from when you would like to delete the comments, like what page number. For reference you have ~264 pages of comments. If you would rather delete specific ones instead of all of them at once, I can do that too but it would take a few more hours. Just let me know if this is what you were looking for and I can send it your way.

Alright so here is the deal, I packaged the solution into a chrome extension because that is what I am used to working with and it is fairly simple. Even if you don't use chrome normally if you download it and use it just for this it will be fine. To install go to chrome://extensions/ (that link won't work, so just add the colon that is removed), drag the file onto the page and hit 'add' when it prompts you. It will add a 'delete all' button to your profile page. Click it and hit yes and it 'should' delete the posts after a minute or two. If it doesn't work let me know because it isn't something I can really test. Here is the file to download.

*A side note to anyone else who reads this thread. I was too lazy to make this work for anyone and made it work specifically for Suzu_91, however I can change that rather quickly if needed so feel free to ask.

It isn't a file that you can open. You have to literally drag it onto the extensions page, I could publish it to the chrome store though if you can't get it to work.

edit: Chrome store link

I can't even imagine how I could do this on a phone, sorry this requires you to be on a computer with chrome installed.

Wow, my bad, I gave you code with a huge syntax error in it. I can't believe I did that. Well I fixed it and it should work as intended now, although whether it works or not is still unknown. Sorry about that. The links are the same.

Well I went ahead and updated it so that it works for everyone and even added an option to specify which page to start deleting on. Be aware that the first page is page 0. It also tries to calculate the number of pages you have based on your total comments and 50 comments per page, but if it doesn't delete them all just run it again lol. Here is the chrome webstore link again. Let me know if it works. Also make sure it is version 1.0.2, it might take a few minutes to update in the store.

"programming" is what beard is doing. I know some of the stuff cause of my game design major. But, I am no expert on it :p You can learn the same stuff by going to college for 'programming' or just google search 'notepad tutorials' or 'dreamweaver tutorials' on the net. Either way, it is like bbc coding. But, on a much larger scale o.o
