To delete a post or thread, you can click on the three dots on the bottom right corner of your post and then select "Delete Post". If you are unable to delete it yourself, you can contact a moderator and request them to delete it for you.

ok :unsure: hmmm, I had clicked the 3 dots and "delete" was NOT an option. Then I erased all the text, but system wouldn't let me do that, ie, save. So not a big deal, I'll just leave it.

It's possible that the delete option was not available because there were already responses to your post. If that's the case, you can still contact a moderator and request them to delete your post or thread. They should be able to help you with that.

I know this thread has been "answered", but I still think it would be nice to have that option, on our own, even if there was a time limit, or before it was replied to, or after. There are times when I'm brain-dead and wish I could delete a post. That's all :)
Verified members are able to delete their threads/posts. But you do make a good point, so regular members from now on can delete their posts within 30 minutes of their creation.

You guys have a brain?! Sigh, yet another thing missing when I arrived here... time to add it to the list of missing items.

But, can there be a bit of confusion with the longer times, if a post is deleted and it messes up the continuity of a thread?
