Can't delete (or edit) my own posts Tags: Site Bug Reports Motherboards Tom's Hardware Last response: April 5, 2010 7:21 PM in Forum Feedback Share Robert I April 5, 2010 5:00:45 PM A while ago, I posted a motherboard question, and put it in the relevant manufacturers sub-topic. I've just noticed the "General Motherboard" category, which I thought was much more appropriate. I noticed there was an "edit posting" button, which included a "delete entire thread" option, though it didn't include an option to change the sub-topic. So I though I'd re-post my message to the right sub-topic, and then delete the original. BUT when I came to actually delete the original post, the system won't let me: it says I am not allowed to edit the message, even though it is my own! So now I've ended up posting the same question twice, and can't clean up. Is there a way for me to edit or delete my own posting? Why does the site offer me a "delete thread" button if it doesn't work? Robert.
