Deleting your topic? - j2krei08 - 03-10-2005

I want to delete a dead topic I wrote, but it doesn't say where (or if for that matter) I go to delete it. Is it possible :???:

Agreed 100% with DP.

To answer: you can't, unless your post hasn't been replied.

Nathan, can we delete an entire thread if its empty? I dont think so. Only mods/admins can do that. We can only delete topics which havent been replied to.

nope, we can delete a thread tbbq.

Exactly. The rule is easy: you can delete your own posts as long as there aren't any other posts after yours, no matter if they are starting a thread or in the middle of one. If your post is the first one in a thread, the thread is deleted.

Ya they're right, I figured that out a while ago, if your the last one to post in the thread you can delete your post, if there are no posts there is no thread, else you can only edit.

My suggestion:

Ask one of the moderators or admins to LOCK the thread.

Smile I put two large post back to back by accident one time,. after DP complained I moved my last post into the first and left this message:

|----Post Deleted, Orignal message now in the post obove<-------|

One of the mods just knocked it off,.. or something did.. Smile

DP, rattrap accidentally made two posts. After you complained he merged both of them. Now that one of them was rendered redundant he replaced it with a message "deleted". And prolly some mod/admin deleted his post Wink
