    I want to start over with my forum and delete all my users, how can i do that?

    I also want to use my xenforo installation as a private way to communicate with people. So it can't be indexed...

    I know i can create a private forum with permissions but how can i ensure that nobody else, including search engines can enter the site.

    Don't allow any view permissions for the unregistered user group.
    If you want the whole site to be inaccessible then use htaccess auth.

    There is no easy to delete all users and their content.
    Why not just do a new installation?

    I will do a fresh install. Thanks:)
    Is there also a way that the user not automaticly logs in when they point to the domain of the forum...

    I hope private forums don't get indexed by search engines?

    Crawlers and bots have the unregistered user group permissions.
