I ask for a moderator of forum delete all messages that I posted on the forum and also my account.

A moderator has said for me using private message:

"Your wish is being granted"

But exist still topics that I posted that were not deleted and my account has not been deleted.

These topics be deleted or not?

My account be deleted or not?

It has been raised in the moderator forum. It was noticed that you have replaced all your posts with "...", so the moderators don't really think it's worth deleting the account.

I am inclined to agree, since you have effectively erased all you have said, deleting the account would just leave unexplained holes in the forum. I'm a little hesitant to just wipe out history, even when asked by the 'owner'.

Just my 2 cents worth:

Isn't there a way the moderators can have they're cake but this user eat it too?
Change his username, reset profile, remove login credentials?

Because it seems he did have the work and is half erased. Lets make it final and create a policy for it, like renaming to a generic name + sequential id.

I think it might as well be deleted considering that there are already holes caused by his erasure of the content. If it was possible to restore his content and rename him generically then I would suggest that however I have deployed phpbb before and there is no inherent way to restore deleted content, other than by restoring a database backup (which would be undesirable/difficult for a number of reasons).

No. Surely you need some placeholder to show that there was a post, even if it has been deleted. Otherwise it will make threads look very weird
