I was just wondering if it was possible to delete your own forum post as a reference for the future. I don't see a "delete" button so I was wondering if you have to do something else.

EDIT: Oh, I mean how would I delete a whole thread if you created it! Whoops, i didn't know there was a different name for a whole thread versus 1 post.

You can only delete a post within the first hour or so of making itt. After that you can report it to moderator and request deletion. However the post that you start a thread with cannot be deleted even within that one hour (except by a moderator, and we rarely do that). It can be edited.

Moderators don't typically delete entire threads; we do lock and close them so no one can post in them and so they don't show up on the main forum page. If you've started a thread that you that you then want to have closed/locked you can also report that to moderator to request it be closed. There is no way for a regular user to close their own thread or delete their first post in a thread they started.
You must be logged in to post.
