Edit or delete old posts

I’ve realized that I can only edit or delete relatively new posts, and that I can’t do this for all my posts. Is this a problem of mine or is this a forum setting?

It’s a forum setting. You can only edit and delete posts up to 30 minutes (I believe) after you’ve made them. You should be able to do this for all posts as far as I know.

It’s to prevent that spammers post “legitimate” (i.e. non-spam) posts and come back a few days later to change the entire contents of the posts to spam, so it slips through the moderator’s fingers.

Thank you :slight_smile:

So if I would like to delete an old post I should ask a moderator then?

Yup, just flag it by clicking the orange flag next to the post –


Thank you very much for your help :slight_smile:
