Do you see the blue button on the upper, right-hand side of your post that says "ACTIONS"? Click that, and you'll see a list come down. Click on "Remove" and it will delete your post.

Since this is a "test", I'll move it to "Just Chat".

It has been a while since I've been on this board.  But, one of the issues in the past is that any one user is not allowed to delete another user's posts. 

So, you wouldn't be allowed to delete a thread that somebody else has replied to.

It used to be that an ordinary user could delete a post in the middle of a thread, but not delete the whole thread.  Ideally one can delete the first post as long as there aren't any replies, but not if there are replies (which there now are).

Some users will try to delete a thread title, or remove the content from their first post.  But, unfortunately that often leaves threads disjointed.

Thank You KRYPTID for the Explaining the blue " Actions " tab option.
🙏
That was Infact the very first thing i thought of doin...i even tried...but it didn't work...gave me an ' ERROR ' message sayin " You cannot Delete "

So Silly of Me, i should have taken a Screenshot of That ' ERROR ' message, which would have helped me to show it to you...but i did Not.
☹️

Thanks again for moving this into
" Just Chat ".
👍


Thanks Alot Clifford for Explaining the ' Deletion Theory '.
👍
That Answers another doubt i had...regarding the recent OP about ' Notifications Issues ' created by VHFPMR.

I was Wondering where did VHFPMRs posts Disappeared all of a sudden.
🤔
But now i get it.

     Perhaps it is a Good Thing to Not let Users delete other users posts.
👍
Say someone created a gibberish conspiracy thread, or a new theory without using their brain...
Then whenever Someone else could refute their claims or rather Help them to Correct & Rectify their mistakes...such dillusioned OP creators would simply keep on deleting the other users posts.
& That won't help anyone on this Forum!
👍

P.S. - I shall just clear off the few gibberish posts of mine in this OP to make it look Decent.
😇
Also, Thanks to You Both...what seemed like a useless pointless baseless OP...Now contains rather useful information...Your replies added Meaning to this OP!
🍭😊🍭

One other note.  If there is a topic that you would like removed, send a PM to your favorite moderator. 

We'll make a judgement whether there appears to be information in the thread that would be of general interest or use to other forum members (of course noting the contributions of multiple forum members).

It is more likely to get removed if there are either no replies, or no serious replies.

Hello Clifford...
Thanks for the " One Other Note ".
👍

Hi AstroGazer!
I Feel Ya!
Been there, Done that!
😑

Forgot how to insert ' Attachments ' but had figured it out the First time thru lil experimentation...hence refigured it out again.
& Yes!
Forgot how to start a new ' OP ' but muscle memory prevailed...my Thumb went right onto the Right Option...
Doesn't happen Alot, when you realize your Thumb is Smarter than your Brain!
👍👍👍

Also...for Three whole months i acted like a Total Bumm...i tried to
' Login ' to the site...

Always got ' Errors ' sayin password is wrong, or worse, the User does Not exist.
☹️

Finally...after Three Months...i figured It out Meself!
😇
Here's the whole melodramatic story...
