Which stuff? I've had hurdles too, but it will eventually happen if you pick the right moderator. I personally miss the guy who had "64" on his jersey...

There is a reason

We intentionally made it difficult for everyone because of a very few individuals who would make an inflammatory post and later edit or delete it, leaving responses that would get the responders into hot water or would leave threads that just didn't make sense. After 15 minutes, no one except a moderator can edit or delete a post.

If you really need a post deleted or edited, I suggest that you contact more than one moderator since any specific moderator may not be available. We moderators keep each other informed as to when we are unavailable, but that information is not made public for obvious reasons.

actually, I posted something tonight that I decieded as soon as I posted not to post it and when I went to delete it, within less then a minute, I was unable to find a delete option even under the advanced button. So I just change the topic and subject to this.

Uh, in that case, forget about my minor rant on the topic.

But now that I think about it, persons with either a lot of posts and/or high karma ought to be extended the privilege of longer editing times and/or different privieges alltogether on a selective basis. Perhaps this may happen in a future software release? Pahaska?

Pa haska will perhaps correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the starting post for a thread can be deleted except by a mod. Others can be deleted within 15 minutes but not the first.
I think.

Bingo! When the first post of a thread is deleted - the entire thread goes with it....so it is not an option - even in the first 15 mins.

Dang it Richard, you caused me to use a double negative and my 15 minutes are expired. I think that slow thinkers like myself should be allowed more time.

kudos for the mod squad!

overlander63 jumped in and corrected my error. Do we have a great mod squad or what?
