hey there,

i have deleted and re-created a user for testing purposes. now i have some old stories by the old user (the author is now known as "Anonymous"), and there seems no way to edit or delete those stories, even for a root-and-everything-admin.

any suggestions?

If that deleted user had his own topic you can delete that topic. Or delete the stories in PHP MyAdmin.

right, i'll try to delete the stories manually in the database.
however, the edit-function as for normal stories is much more comfortable.

wouldn't that be a great feature for rc2 ?

Be aware that this will leave orphaned comments and possibly story images in the database (and in case of images, on the server).

bye, Dirk
