Options to delete a post

7 posts in this topic

Posted

I wanted to delete a reply post after noticing that the information duplicated that in a prior post by someone else that I'd missed.

There doesn't seem to be an option to 'delete', though -- only to 'edit.'

Or is there?

There isn't...which I reckon is more often than not a good thing.

You can send a PM to the Moderators and ask them to remove the post if you wish.

Or also just edit to "..." . Usually the mods will delete those. Depending on your status you will either have a 20 minute window or 3 hour window to do so. well it use to be that way. If after that then its locked in to which like Mr Keydeck said pm a mod.

Those posts are auto-deleted. The deletion bot runs about once an hour.

This happens all the time, I wouldn't be too worried about it.

If you start a new topic and then find one related to your question you can report your topic and request a merge. In such cases, providing the URL of the other topic is appreciated.

Thanks for the replies. Editing down to "..." to signal the 'deletion bot' will do the trick.
