Delete my post option?

Hi, it's not often but once in a great while I might post
a reply and then decide I don't want to do that.

I can edit my own post but cannot delete it.
If I delete all the words and uncheck the signature option
it says I need at least 2 characters.
Not sure what good 2 characters are but please consider
adding the delete option for my personal posts.

Thanks!

Wink Me too

Occasionally, I wish I could whistle back a hastily concidered reply or post as well.

Deletion would be a useful feature for the Want Ads as well when something is sold.

If you want a post deleted, tell me which one via PM and I will do it for you. An alternative is to edit the post and enter .. as the required characters. If you start a thread, it will be better for me to delete it.

Send a message via Yahoo to dimurrrw
I seem to recall from somewhere that the ability to delete a post is an "administrator function." To do so you have to have administrative access to the database(?). See Kim's post above.

I wasn't thinking of deleting a post that I started that had
multiple replies.
I was thinking of me being the last guy to reply and then
having 2nd thoughts and wanting to just forget it!

If it's not in the software then so be it.

I'm with KYDan, I too could have used the ability to delete a post in the past.

Hokie, could you kindly tell me where in the heck the edit button is?

I know where it should be for this Vbulletin version and I am guessing it is not turned on?

Apparently the edit function is turned off. I will look into it.

I discovered that you have a maximum of 120 minutes to edit a post. After that there is no edit button.

Since mine stays on all the time I didn't know that. So I guess you have to read and edit fairly quickly, although most of the time you catch an error fairly soon after posting.

Well that makes sense as far as this board goes. Guess I have not paid attention.

My vote would definitely be to turn it on full time.

I don't always pay attention to what I type and my fingers are very fast compared to my brain lol.
