Deleting a Post
« on: February 25, 2021, 11:11:01 am »
Morning Guys

I dont know if I am going stupid ( please be kind when answering ) but I cant see how to delete a reply to a post, as I put one up twice yesterday not the end of the world but seeing the same reply twice    :'(
I dont know where I am going, but will know where I am when I get there.

You can't, so people can change their mind without saying so.

You can edit for up to 30 minutes after you make a post or until someone replies to it (I think)

Best thing to do is hit the report post button and just put "delete duplicate" or something like that as the reason and a moderator will pick it up.

Global Moderator Comment Edit: I've found and deleted the duplicate.

If you notice it within the 30 minutes, you can edit, and most people just delete the text and put a full stop in its place.
