    Used to be I could remove older photos and manage them from my profile page before the conversion. Now I see no other way to do that besides flagging them and asking for them to be deleted. Does anyone know how to do it. I don't have any media, just post photos. Some I want to remove for personal reasons. Thanks for any insight.

    I have not found a way to do this if the post is over a certain age (for premium members it's six months I think).

    Yeah, six months.

    So should I keep flagging photos until the mods get sick of me? :hmm Some things were better before. It will change what I post from now on. I lose control of them this way, where before I had a say about them.

    I guess I will just keep up my way of flagging for now until I'm told to stop. Thanks for your help, and any future help. :)

    Plus it's a lot of work to hunt down a few photo, but I will keep at it.

    I THINK if you remove them from your gallery, it removes them from posts? @casportpony Kathy you might know if this works? It used to work this way on the old system.

    @KikisGirls, did you ever find a way to search for photos by user?
