Testing to see if post will let me delete it.

Just testing to see if it will let me delete this post after making it. I had trouble this morning with it doubling my post and would let me delete it afterwards. My fingers are crossed, hope it works.

This is what I see on my screen went I go in to delete a box that shows "edit", a triangle that has a "!" in it and if you put your mouse on it the message says "report this post", then there is the box that shows "quote". I'm not sure what is wrong with it.

Hi Roda. You should not have the ability to delete a post. If you do, then I accidentally changed something that I should not have.

Update: I checked, and the settings still indicate you should not be able to delete.

I just checked to see what options I had to edit my post after I posted it and the "delete this post" option is gone. Hmmm. I have deleted my own posts in the past. When I'm on my laptop I will double check to be sure but it seems the ability to delete our own posts might be gone. But I'm not complaining. The absence of spam is worth it.

I was going to delete Roda's test post - but this string of replies is useful. You should have the option to delete and edit your own posts. Maybe Terry can fix this option - I don't believe I have access to this area of WD.

we can delete out own posts just by going to 'edit' and wiping out the content, then putting 'deleted by poster' in its place... i've done that many times in the past, when i've accidentally duped one...

but we can't delete a thead we've created and we shouldn't be able to, imo, since that would mean we're deleting others' posts without their permission...

And I would be happy to delete a post upon request if you want to wipe it completely out of existence.
