Disappearing Posts

Do posts disappear? How does this happen? Are they retracted or what? Just wondering.

Is there a particular post you are looking for?

We move posts all the time. Usually these are threads that start out in the wrong place, like "Water Leak" would be posted in the "How to use these Forums". That is the most common ones that are moved.

Sometimes I go into the Restoration sub-forum and do major housecleaning and move treads to their proper category. Sometimes it just gets away from me and I try to play catch-up.

Sometimes I delete my own posts because the link doesn't work , wrong info , wrong spirit , or just to make you think you are losing your mind

Problem with deleting is if your the originator of that thread it will delete all the responses. So if there is some good information in replies that others have made coment too then do a edit on the post so that the info others are using is not lost.

Didn't know that. Kind of powerful that delete function. Only delete my own misguided prose and don't think I did a thread. Now that I know I will not do that, unless I'm having a really bad day and everyone is disagreeing with me, and it's clear I'm wrong.

Ammmm.......


Not quite. If your is the only post in a thread you started you should be able to delete it. If anyone has responded the system should stop you from deleting the thread. You can blank out the original post, but not delete it. If your post is the second or later one then you can delete it.

Moderator hat on:

We would prefer that you not delete whole posts out of a thread. This can cause confusion if it has been there for a while and has been quoted. If you wish to correct yourself, go ahead, the post will show it was edited. Some members actually place a line that states on edit:

There is no harm in editing to better clarify a point, etc. We want you get the information you need as well as share the information you have.

Moderator hat off
