Delete posts?

Discussion in 'Suggestions & Questions' started by #Heel, Apr 17, 2012.

  1. I often find myself posting something that I wish I hadn't posted a few minutes after, or that was already said, or something that was irrelevant or stupid. When I get in those situations it is hard to cover them up with an edit that makes sense in context with the previous posts. I was just wondering if it was possible for a delete button to be implemented or if there is a certain reason one hasn't been made so far.

    EDIT: if possible could status deletion also be added?
     
  2. There should be one next to edit buddy. As for the status thing I can delete updates so if you ever want one of your own deleting just PM me. There was abit of talk about making deleting your own status a legend feature in the section at some point so it may be kept for that.
     
  3. Ok, but here is a screen of my thread menu and edit button drop down for reference anyway:

  4. Might be a superstar only thing then, just looked through the mod logs and they seem to be able to do it.
     
  5. Standard users being able to delete posts = Rogue user deletes all posts when pissed off. It's too easy to abuse.

    We have or will (can't remember) given upgraded groups the ability to junk posts. I don't think they can yet but they'll get that. Otherwise it's too easy to abuse. Just report a post you don't want to stay and Staff will deal with it :).

    (Edit the post and say "delete me" and then report as Low Quality)
     
  6. Fair enough.
     
  7. Closed. :ace:
