If it's possible, how do I delete a post?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm not sure if this is in the correct forum, but I was wondering if there is a way to delete a post. Multiple times I have said something that someone already said before, but I don't know what else to put so instead of just writing something like "Oh, sorry, I didn't see someone already put this" or something like that is there a way to just delete a post?

You can't delete one, but you can either edit it, or report it and ask a staff member to delete.

 

But it's ok to ask questions that have already been asked or to repeat a comment. :)

That's fine! There are many threads that are talking about the same question. Sometimes its easier to start your own new one, asking specific questions.

In my house there are: 4 barred rocks, 4 welsummer bantams, 3 buff orpingtons, 6 rabbits (mini lops), 1 standard poodle, 1 leopard gecko.

Hi,

 You can also go back to the post and edit it to just one letter. No explanation, just one letter. Folks will figure it out.

 Best,

My flock now resides with Farmer Karl in PA.   

  I know he will do well by them. Karl is a knowing poultry man.

RIP Hellbender, my friend. Good friend, good heart, gone too soon.

Another thing that will help is to watch the lower right side of the screen as you are typing.  Sometimes a little box that pops up and it says, "1 New Post".  Click on that even while you work on your post and you can read it and either change your answer to reflect something in the new post or just cancel yours before you post it.  Works great most of the time....IF you remember to check when that box comes up.  Too often I don't.  So when I repeat a response, I don't worry about it - I either make a joke about it or ignore that I duplicated.

I'll make sure I remember to check if there's a new post.
