How to delete a forum post

Hello!

I need to delete one of my form posts urgently as I am getting an emergency with that.
Please help.
Thank you.

@eliasdiek Have you tried editing it to remove all the content?

Hey there, @eliasdiek :wave:

The only other post I see from you is from December 2020. Is this what you are referring to?

If so, you can delete any post you publish by selecting the three dots next to reply. See the screenshot below, and then selecting the icon that looks like a trash can.

it’s saying “You don’t have permission to delete this topic. If you really want it to be deleted, submit a flag for moderator attention together with reasoning.”

hi there eliasdiek, i just removed that post for you.

the reason we don’t allow people to delete older posts (i think the cutoff is aftre 24hr) without assistance from a mod is that deleting posts randomly creates a lot of problems when there are long threads with a lot of replies.

you did the right thing by flagging the post - admins and moderators have the ability to take care of deletions in such a way that causes less problems! thanks for helping out.
