    Not just edit, but completely remove? Thanks.

    The moderator of that forum has to do it.

    I liked it when the originator of the post could delete. DDD

    Me too, 3D. I also liked to be able to correct the title. I hate it when I make a spelling error and can't fix it!

    Unfortunately, with the upgrades, that feature didn't come along with it. If needed, just ask a mod to correct the title. I fight the urge to correct spelling in a title.

    One of the reasons that the creator can't just delete a thread is because for some unknown reason, the thread is still out there is cyber world. If a mod does it, the thread is protected from some creep getting a hold of it. I don't know all the specifics to it, but Cheryl designed it that way to protect our membership.

    I'm actually an admin on a forum that uses this same program and there are ways to enable a poster to delete their thread or post. Howeve, it disrupts the continuity the thread to have posts deleted here and there so we only allow admins to do it too.

    Also - when we have deleted stuff, it takes 48-72 hours for it to be deleted from Google.
