    I searched, but not too hard. So how do you get a post deleted? [​IMG]

    I don't believe that there is a way unless you ask a moderator to do it.
    If posts in the middle of the thread are deleted it could make it unreadable (or unintelligible). It may just be better to edit the post.

    Great question. We've got the forum setup so members can't delete posts. This use to be a feature, but we found that some members deleted the first post in a thread which could delete all the hundreds of replies so we quickly disabled the feature. You can edit a post and if you really need a post deleted you can contact a moderator.

    I didn't know if it was customary to delete old post or not.
