    When posting wrong...

    Hi,

    Sometimes I've posted a thread in the wrong forum, forgotten to include a poll (I've seen that I've been able to delete some posts myself, is this correct?) And I do different stuff wrong.

    What am I supposed to do then? Just leave it there, and post a "please delete/move/eat this thread my dear moderators" or use the report function on my own threads?

    If you do anything wrong, the best thing to do it use the report button.

    Uhhhhhh, can you do that?

    I noticed that my posts don't have a report button on them, and only other people's posts have a report button.

    We generally frown upon it unless someone has a follow up the the exact situation that was being discussed and it is very noteworthy. Otherwise we rather have old threads left alone and new threads started.
