Deleting posts?

Sometimes I would like to delete a post but seems if I started the thread I can't delete it. Then the flagging instructions say ONLY for obscenity, threatening, etc etc. Is it ok to request my post to be removed?

Joe,
yes its fine to request a delete..I did the one for you last night!
not a problem..

im not sure why you wouldn't be able to delete your own thread..the forum software or settings must not allow it..(sometimes disgruntled members (of any forum) can decide they want to delete every post they ever made and leave in a huff..not being able to delete a whole thread is probably intentional to avoid lots of good threads going away, in a case like that..that's probably why..)

but if there is a good reason to delete, just send in a "report post" notification, explain why you want a thread delete, and the mods will take care of it..

Scot

You can do it yourself just by choosing your post and press Edit then delete your post.

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

Doesn't always allow me that option, Norm. Ergo the queston.

Thumbs up

I saw that the other evening, Scot and thanks for all of your help. I really appreciate the timely manner in which any problems are dealt with on this forum. It's by far the best one I belong to.

You can only delete individual posts. I believe only moderators can delete entire threads. I don't mind doing it for people. Also, You can't edit the thread title after you post which kind of sucks.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Thanks Scot and SHRYP. I don't want to rock the boat. Yeh. You're right about that not being able to change thread titles. There have been a few times I'd like to have done that. ( now to find that thread I started and report it!)

Got it taken care of.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.
