Question for the mods or whoever can do this.

Can we get a delete post/thread option?

I'm not complaining about all of the various threads on the same topic, but at the pace that this forum is growing, one would assume that this will start to happen more often. If someone posts something like a minute before I do and I didn't see it, I would love to be able to delete mine and give the other user the podium for that subject. Then we could have one nice discussion on football/WWII/CB height/etc. on that thread.

Just a thought.

    I've always wondered why we can't delete our own post. Should be able to have that option especially after night of partaking in the beverages.

    Yep. Guilty here. Wish I could delete several of my own.

    You have an hour to edit. I've edited when somebody has already quoted the old/bad/humiliating words I now deleted.
    But after an hour, you are toast.

    I know! The horror of posting it, then rethinking it and then BAM!! Somebody's got you by the n a d s and will drag you unmercifully through the whole thread.....

    Should own what you post even if it is stooopid. 1 hour to edit is more than reasonable, but no way should you be able to delete or edit past that, that is why most boards have active moderators, but since this is an AJC run board they have other jobs other than to babysit a bunch of so called adults......bahahhahaaa

    My exception is this is when I eat tainted Bojangles biscuits, which may cause me to temporarily lose my ability of thought...and bowels....in no particular order. I should have at least 24 hours to edited or delete my post after those episodes......

    Bowels in an uproar and diarrhea of the mouth are 2 separate issues.

    If the powers that be gave members the delete function of thier posts then you could end up in a bunch of confusing one sided
    conversations, not to mention the quoted replies that are no longer there. So do you give members the function to delete thier quotes also thus editing and deleting another members posts.....see where I am going here......the inmates running the asylum........and you know as well as I do there are some who would take advantage of said function....nope best left alone or have some active mods or admins

    Ruh roh. Bowels? Oh boy, that's not suppose to happen. I better have a talk with my "herbal" supplier.

    Yep, I try not to drink more than I can sober up from in 50 minutes or less while posting.

    I've noticed too much lysergic acid diethylamide gravy on my biscuits weirds me out.
    That might be what Dickens meant by ''more gravy than grave''.
