Hi,

I guess I did not fully understand what delete account means. Yes it removed their account but the name persists in the forums. They are not happy about this as it's in search engines. Is there a way to remove this name or posts all together after the fact? Thanks

You would need to change the name before any deleting.

However it would require a direct MySQL query to alter the username of posts and threads afterwards.
