    Will my threads/posts live forever?

    I'm in a process of building a website that will use common threads like this forum on Sitepoint. But I would like to know what should happen when a members choses to close down his account. Will all his threads/post be deleted as well? What is the normal way to do this?

    Thanks

    His posts should be kept unless he edits them before he deletes his/her account.

    At SitePoint members are not allowed to delete their own account, or even their own posts. The best they can do is edit their posts to remove the content if they so desire, and then just not return to SitePoint. You could set up your forum in a similar way. But in most forum software, removing an account won't remove that user's posts/threads.
