For the GB posts, there is an unofficial Chrome extension here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cr-gb-delete/kpdenplmognkddfdfmnaggamjmhaahbc

Forum posts, though, you only have an hour after initially posting to delete them, after that they have a permanent place (it's called "permalink" for a reason). You could go back and edit them each one-by-one, by changing the text to a single period or something, except in any threads that have been closed, there's nothing you can do about those. To find all your old posts, go to the main forum page: /forum and in the "Search Forums" text box (next to the New Topic button), put this text with no spaces: user:lucythefangirl5689

That kind of search only works for your own posts, you can't look up another user's that way. (using Google is another matter...) If you have a lot of them, that could be quite a large/lengthy project. what I would try is possibly, if you ask a mod, and they are in a good mood or just bored, they may have a way to do it, because they do clean up spam posts, but I'm not sure if there is a policy against doing it for just anyone on request. You could ask support about it, as well; whether or not they will do it is the big question.

Another way would be to /nuke your account and start completely over with a new username, but that loses everything, buddies, watch history, queue, etc, etc, and it doesn't actually remove any of the posts, they will still be there, it just leaves a blank space on the left instead of your avatar/points/location/gender so that they are no longer associated with your currently active account.

Click on the word nuke in my post above, (I made it a link) and follow instructions from there.

Again, sorry, do you know what to do to use the extension?

Using Chrome (I hope), click on the link I provided, and then once there, click on the Add to Chrome button, and any subsequent OK/ADD whatever follwups.

Once added, a kind of gray Crunchyroll extension icon should show up to the right of the URL bar. This just verifies that it is there.

Then go to your profile page, and you will see a new button has shown up next to the add comment button in the right column underneath the text box that says "Delete All".

I've no idea whether that deletes your posts on other user's profiles,...probably not, though.

You could send a PM to the mod who wrote it if you have other questions, I guess, or post on his group:
