    Don't use that, it just looks like you wrote something dumb or are backtracking. We are used to your dumb posts now so no need to get embarrassed :bigok:

    I would have thought the edit feature would give you the option to delete a post (as most BB's so) however this forum may be set up slightly differently.

    Yeah, the edit function gives you an option to delete any post and once you click on that there is a little radio button you need to check in order for the delete to happen. Hope this helps.

    And then a Mod comes along and restores it :D

    Seriously folks, the Delete posts function is left for personal use to remove duplicate posts, not so that folks can come along afterwards and selectively prune a conversation.

    We don't have hole filled, disjointed and confusing threads because it's never been a common issue here; though it's noticeable when someone tries it too often that others have become adept at quoting them before they can remove their ramblings ;)

    Haha oh yes! I thought about this as a means of cleaning some of my More abstract out pourings, but as Jond told me it makes you look like your either back tracking, or trying to hide your views on a subject so I now only edit my posts to correct spelling and if I see it grammatical errors! It will hopefully show an evolution from mental ramblings to coherent text and informative posts! HA Even I don't believe that will happen!

    EDIT: hahahaaaaaaaaaaa

    Than you can right start to edit the above post :nana:

    In the past people deleted their posts after they ... hmm ... weren't very nice or polite towards others, in the hope they could evade an infraction. On other occassions we had people who thought BCUK wasn't for them deleting all their posts, leaving incoherent threads - completely useless for future reference.
