I deleted my question from Stack Overflow having some sensitive information, but I believe the question is not completely removed from Stack Overflow. It also has a revision history, so I want to remove all the data related to it - snapshot everything. Could anyone properly help me to resolve this matter?

Mods can redact a revision - you should do a revision with no sensitive information, then do a custom flag asking for a redaction of all of the offending revisions.

Mods will see its redacted, but not the offending information.

Naturally, do this sparingly, and *do* sanitize your code *before* posting it to the public internet in future.

  • Yeah thanks I do it lets see what they will do I indeed will take care next time Jan 27, 2021 at 9:13
  • how can I delete the screenshot from imgur which is used by stackoverflow? Jan 27, 2021 at 9:25
  • ugh. That probably needs a CM - and might take longer. If you haven't already flagged the post - might want to include that you need that in your flag Jan 27, 2021 at 9:28
  • But I already flagged the question I already contact the support for this Jan 27, 2021 at 9:30
  • So you should wait for their response. It won’t be immediate
