TLS Post Deleter

As of 1/17/2016, this code DOES NOT appear to be working.

This code will attempt to edit all of your TLS posts and replace with with the text “Post Removed”. No guarantees whatsoever that it will work, or that your posts won’t pop up elsewhere on the internet. After all, once you post something online it is often indexed and stored by services like google and wayback machine.

To run the program, follow these instructions. If you have trouble, message me (Robb on TLS) and I will try to help. Note that you must have the new TLS layout enabled for this to work (be sure “My board style” is set to “prosilver” here).

Mac/Linux:
1) Download the file here to your Downloads directory (right click the link -> Save as)
2) Open a terminal (on a mac, go to the magnifying glass in the top right hand corner of your screen, type terminal, and select the app)
3) Type the text inside these quotes: “python Downloads/tls_post_deleter_gui.py”
4) Follow the instructions
5) If it doesn’t work, restart your computer and contact me via PM to Robb on TLS for help.

Windows:

1) Download and run the file here. It might be necessary to add an exception to your virus protection software. If you do so, BE SURE TO REMOVE THE EXCEPTION AFTER YOU ARE DONE WITH THE PROGRAM.
2) Follow the instructions
3) If it doesn’t work, restart your computer and contact me via PM to Robb on TLS for help.

Windows (alternative method)
1) Download and install Python (Version 2 or 3 is OK) from here
2) Download the file here (right click the link -> Save as)
3) Double click the file to run it
4) Follow the instructions
5) If it doesn’t work, restart your computer and contact me via PM to Robb on TLS for help.

Chrome OS users

I have not tested this for Chrome OS, but TLS User Davey Jones reported success installing Crouton based on the instructions here, then following the instructions for Mac/Linux above. Davey Jones notes: “the instructions worked great for me. I DID need to go in to developer mode in order for commands in shell to work. it took some time, and could definitely weird out a lot of chromebook users (some loud beeping and scary looking screens), but it works.” Neither I nor Davey Jones, are affiliated with Crouton; install it at your own risk.
