Well, you could make a PHP form for that, that reads the database and if it finds a match - drop the table. You could even recycle the signup form - only use name, email (and whatever you like) to check if this data exists in the database, asks if you really want to delete and then drop the data.
Would need some kind of form for them to use that on submission would remove the yes and replace with a no. Actually, that would have to happen if they went back to the signup and resubmitted with a no also.
K, bit hard to read that line (punctuation ??
Since no signup and therefore no username/pw things can get very dangerous, a.k.a.: A hacker/script kiddy could delete event signups etc...
The first event signup is no problem.
If they want to change something later they HAVE to input something that authenticates them as this person. So, you could give them a salted md5 hash (or whatever) after their first event signup, that they have to safe (use for later authentication)... Or, they use their name and email to authenticate...
User friendliness is one thing, but security is a far bigger concern.
