Re: Delete post option?

Agree totally. However sometimes, with the level of technical expertise shown on here, I forget to look for the simple and start looking for the obscure Smiley Embarassed

Test post to see if I can edit or delete.....

 

Edit, yep, I can edit, but delete has gone !!

I sometimes find that the "Delete" and "Edit" buttons are gone!

 

No "Delete" button for this post either, straight after I've posted.

It has normally been that you can delete or edit a post straight away but the delete option had disappeared after someone else posted after you.

 

EDIT...Yes delete option has self deleted itself!!

Re: Delete post option?

Hi guys,

I have removed this option from the community for a good reason.

Luckily, right now we have very little abuse or offensive content on the community (which is wonderful), but if we do get any, I don't want the ability to delete it to be present, as it could mean that we miss stuff that is nasty or upsets anyone. So it's to protect you all Smiley Happy

I hope that makes sense!

Re: Delete post option?

I don't understand as you could only delete your own posts, so if you wrote something nasty and then thought better of it you could just edit it anyway?

Re: Delete post option?

I think the option to delete your own post should remain. It surely should be an option to at least edit the post, this again is no longer an option after an hour or so.

Re: Delete post option?

I do agree completely with the edit option remaining. I can understand that some people edit previous posts to support their flawed arguments but its pretty obvious when that happens.

I like being able to edit when I spot a stupid mistake I've made when posting previously.
