    Most forums have such a function. Very useful when you do a double post by mistake, or when one´s post gets ninja´ed, or simply because you think your post is not relevant anymore.

    In some forums the delete function is permanently available, in others it is active for a limited time period, etc One way or another it would be very useful.

    FWIW!

    I'll look into adding a temporary one, perhaps 30 mins ?

    I've been on forums where users can delete their posts at any time and a prolific poster got annoyed and ended up deleting all his posts which made loads of threads no longer make sense. So I'm not going to enable that.

    It will have to wait until next week though as I'm busy right now. If I don't do it, post a reminder as I may well forget!

    Until then you can always report a post to get it marked for deletion.

    Well, then I'll report my misposts when I spot them, it's good enough for me. :D

    Don't most forums allow post deletion as long as no-one has replied to that thread?

    There should now be a 30 minute time limit to edit posts for all users.

    Agreed, same issue on the OCC coaches thread, which is usually updated on the front page.

    Not sure this is the intended effect?? :confused:

    Not that I've seen, not at least without a mod of some kind or editing the code directly.


    I've turned edit post time restriction off, there doesn't seem to be a similar option for deleting posts though, will have to stick to just reporting them and mods can deal with it.

    I've had a look for a mod with more flexible features though as of yet nothing suitable has shown up.
