Why can't we delete posts?

Post by DeathJag » Wed Dec 25, 2019 8:54 am

I just accidentally posted four times because I was trying to edit. The quote icon and the pencil icon look exactly the same to me apparently.

I want to clean up the thread!

In the top right corner or your post, right next to the edit icon, there is an X to delete the post.

Ah, right. That disappears!

You can only delete your post if it's the most recent in a topic.

This stops older content from quietly vanishing down the track (after it's been replied to).
