Smile Editing or Deleting a POST?

I'm wondering is there anyway of editing or deleting a POST you posted? Is there some time limit to how many times you can edit a post?
I have a post that I wish to edit or delete, but doesn't give me that option anymore, or I'm just not looking at right settings?

Thank You

i believe you can edit a post within a very short time period here but not delete one. yes it is very annoying and of all the other forums i am a member of.... DA.C is the most restrictive. why? ... i have no clue!

G'day,

It's pretty easy to delete any thread you've started or joined in on.. simply ask me to delete your post and pass on the link so I can find it and "viola" (sic) it's gone.

Simply PM the details to me and within 24 hours it's gone. Already many members contact me this way to remove postings and threads.

Cheers Lou

The odd thing is, Lou, that I can remember a time here when I could delete a post made in error. For some unexplained reason, this forum changed that and nobody has given a decent explanation as to why. On top of that, the function hasn't been reinstated, even though countless members has asked for it over the years.

That said, it IS very kind of you to step in, but really . . . we should be able to do that ourselves.

hey all,

there is a reason why you cannot delete the posts. The main reason is that it can leave gaps in the database, which can cause the tables to become out of sync and mess with things. Another good reason is a fun one, some users who as the younger generations call it, "rage quitting" would up and delete all their tips, tutorials, replies, etc.

this can cause confusion, extra work on management on the forums for mods and site admins as well. its also why we only soft delete threads, soft delete accounts when requested, along with adjusting threads for users.

hope that helps to answer the questions here. if you need anything, let me know.

It would be nice if the "edit" feature would still be left active. Instead of being on a time limit.

There is also a reason for this.

Just a short story that happened all about 20 minutes ago on another ticket on another board, a User was extremely frustrated and out of spite and quote he wrote

"I wish i could just delete all 350 of my threads and posts, just to spite "admin"."

And this is a good reason why edits have a time limit and are left up to Mods to do so. It creates gaps in conversation, keeps really good reference threads up and going, and keeps it part of the board.

You are more then welcome though to reuqest and edit from an admin or mod though. And 95% of the time if you have a legit reason to edit it, then its not an issue.

imagine you went to a DIY or tutorial thread, and it was edited or all information was gone due to an agitated member "ragequitting" the forum. this would be extra annoying and causes way more clean up and maintenance of the board for the mods and admins.

its one of the main reasons why. If you need a thread edited, let us know.

You know, Shane, I've been a long-time member of other long-haul forums out there, and THIS is the ONLY forum with these wacky edit/delete dynamics. Colour me 'not impressed'.

And as far as 'rage quitting' is concerned, all it takes is one upset member who has contributed a number of photos in threads, set up specifically for instructional purposes, to shift those images on their Photobucket (or whoever) account elsewhere. That alone can bork many useful instructional threads with imaging.

Please reconsider.

We're not going to allow users to be able to delete their thread. a lot of information would disappear. I don't find that benefiting anyone especially newer users who are testing the waters here and looking for information.

Like Shane has said, please let us know if you need something removed.

Hi guys,

The settings right now are set to allow members to edit their posts up to a day after making it, after that point you will be locked out of edits and will have to contact a mod in order to request the changes.

I noticed that some of you said that it was not working right and sometimes won't let you make any changes? Is this something that is happening regularly?

An "Edit" function with no time out would be a nice feature for the "for sale" section. I'd like to update my original post with models sold and sales pending and perhaps change a few prices. Now I can't do that. That way I'm not inundated with private messages for models already sold and I don't have to continuously make new posts to update the thread.

Good idea. As I mentioned earlier,deleting old eBay or "For sale" posts would be nice.

As Sheena said, if your looking to delete or change a post you can message either this account or a mod on the site and it will be done.

Thanks,
