No more option to delete posts or pictures?
« on: June 04, 2019, 07:49:50 AM »
I recently noticed the delete option for posts and pictures is now gone. Why? There are times I may only want a picture posted in my gallery for a short time. We may sometimes need to delete a post for different reasons. With no delete option what you post or picture is permanent, so post carefully. I may not post anymore pictures for this reason. I would like the option to delete if needed. Anyone around the world can do a search of something non-related and come across your pictures.

I know that on the Harley forum that I run we give an edit option for a limited amount of time..... 5 days.... in case someone makes a mistake or wants to update..    Also gives folks a chance to make corrections, or maybe re-think something that they regretted posting..   After that if someone really wants to change something they can contact a mod and request it..

But the main reason that deletes are problematic is that you can have an entire thread of valuable information that suddenly doesn't make any sense because everyone was responding to the original post that's now deleted. 

As far as pictures go... I guess just be aware that any posted pic once on the internet even for a second can be FOREVER...    For example.... I would never post a picture from about 15 years ago with me in a hot tub with a naked Selma Heyak...  because my wife might see it...and because I've never met Selma Heyak.......except of course for the time I picked her up when she was hitch hiking in northern Wyoming on my way to Sturgis...

My last post has the option to remove. Perhaps you weren't logged in?

Agree about the benefits of said feature.

Well I hope she doesn’t see that! I’m jealous! 😂

You have 24 hours to remove or edit a post.  Then you may ask a moderator to do it for you...

Ok, thank you. I wonder if it didn’t show because I was on my iPhone?

I did that for me on my computer the other day when I was logged in.  I don't know if there was an issue or glitch with the site but it gave me the option to do it about 10 minutes later.
