Title: Deleting my own posts
Post by: 1vertical on April 23, 2010, 08:42:29 am
Well I have a couple ads up in "wanted to buy"  and wanted
to delete the ads cause they are no longer relevant.

I finally had to settle for the resolution of just changing words
in the posts to stuff like...."disregard".  I clicked every thing
on the page to try to find the erase icon and no luck.  I see
other people doing similar things.

This aspect is not the most user friendly thing....just sayin.

Maybe it just shows up for me because I'm a mod, but in the upper right hand corner of a post I see a red "X" that says remove.  Do you see that?

I think it's because you are a mod.  The solution...make us all moderators  ;D

Man, that's weird that there's no way to delete your own posts....hey, other mods, did we disable that when we were having "troubles"?

but NOT without a few bumps...

Here is what I got when I tried to delete my ad...

You cannot delete your own topics in this board.  

Back

And I realize that is because they are topics and not just thread postings.
Still....argggghhhhh

You should be able to delete your own topics now.  I just changed the setting.
