    Exclamation cant nuke all my submission messages

    This could also be considered as a website bug, but without an account, this error I keep getting wont even be possible.
    So you see, I have over 64,000 submissions from over the course of at least 3 years from people. I would like to completely nuke them all but every time I do, I get this error:
    1) Click Nuke All Submissions
    2) Confirm through dialog boss to really do it by clicking ok
    3) Wait awhile for the next page to load
    4) I either get a blank page with this URL http://www.furaffinity.net/msg/submissions/new@60/, then I go back to my submmision message page to find all 64,000 are still there
    OR
    I get this fatal website error:
    Fur Affinity

    Error 502

    Please wait a few minutes and try your request again.

    The server is currently having difficulty responding to all requests. Administrators are working as quickly as possible to resolve this issue. Thank you for your understanding.


    If you received this error while uploading a new submission, please check to see if your submission was partially created before attempting to upload again.

    More information may be posted at the Site Status forum.

    but I would return to my submissions, the site fine but all 64,000 of them still there.


    So I just want to nuke them all so I can start from fresh for the new year. I'm not sure if you have the power to do that.

    Thank You for your time.

    I also get the same error when doing so. I have submissions accumulated over the years. Now way I am going to delete them one page at a time. Same issue applies to the accumulated journals etc.

    Thanks to FA's poor coding, when you hit "nuke" you're sending a command to the database to clear 64,000 notices at once. This is inefficient, and by the looks of it, the server just refuses to do it at all.

    Most sites actually would take that and break it down into something like 64 operations of 1000 removals.

    Your best bet is to just wait forever until this is fixed or do it by hand.
