How to delete a reply ?

Postby TheEagle » Tue Jun 29, 2021 1:03 pm

I cannot find any button to delete a topic reply of mine - am I just dumb or isn't that possible at all ?

Please let me know if you find any boasting in my texts so I can remove it - I'm awfully sorry if you do. It's not meant to be boasting, but English just isn't my native language.

You can always edit and remove the contents off course.

Update: Ah and there is a delete [X] pictogram next to edit.

@erik I can only found that X button for a short time - I posted this topic about 90 minutes ago. Directly after posting it, there was such a button, but now, there isn't anymore ?!?

unless things have changed greatly, being able to delete replies is a setting in one of several places in the forum's configuration...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

We've always disallowed deletion of post once a reply has been posted (before that you can delete your own post), as that can quickly lead to incomprehensible topics. If there's something in an old post that you'd absolutely like to delete you can edit it.

Apparently that was disabled in this subforum, should be back now ;-)
