How do we delete post?

I triple posted a draft of a thread and I don't want the admins to think I'm spamming.

Don't think you can here. I honestly can't stand how these forums work. Everything is soooo old.

 

I mean even trying to quote someone is a real pain in the arse and requires all this HTML nonsense. God forbid you wan't to use a quote from something that isn't already posted..

You can't delete a post, just be more careful in future or the Moderators will indeed think you are spamming, why did you triple post anyway?

 

PM a member of the Moderation Team & ask them to delete the posts concerned.

I & most others like the way the new Forums are working, there are still a few things to be ironed out but the Forums are running as planned.

 

Why are you finding it so hard to quote someone, what browser are you using?, quoting someone else's post is actually very easy to do, like I did here with yours.

 

I don't understand your last comment though, how would you be able to quote something that hasn't already been posted anyway!!??

My browser loaded the post a bit slow and crashed so I refreshed and typed it out a bit differently and then I posted again only to discover It triple posted.

 

I have no clue why you can't delete though.

DELTE THIS TOPIC (for example)

You can't delete so that if you screw up and insult some one you can't run and hide.

Most users can't even work out how to edit..

so it does not matter about deleing as they would not be able to find that option either.

Just admit your mistake and PM mods for Deletion. if you realy care

No harm no real failure..

 

Standard practice on forums is just to EDIT the multi posts deleting the content and marking it as a duplicate or un-needed post, making one full post, then mods can delete if they want.. or ignore as the other users will after editing is done any way.
