Is there a way to delete a Forum Post that you've posted after it is no longer needed?
click on more at bottom of your post and you can delete it
I mean if I am the author of the entire Forum Post. Sometimes I ask questions and then I get the right answers or all kinds of help and the Forum Post is no longer necessary. I've looked but I don't see how to close or delete a Forum that I started.
I don't know if I've ever seen an entire thread deleted; we typically don't do that, though we sometimes (upon request/requirement) remove the title and/or close the thread to deep six it.
Yeah you can do that Cat but btw why do you want to delete one, whatever you write cat is a gem even if it goes wrong for you, it will be a great read for others
You're a real gem. But I have made Forums looking for help and help was delivered. I don't see the point in hogging up Forum space if I no longer need it, you know what I mean?
I just learned how to delete a forum post Cantuhearmescream, thanks.
Go to your account, under "Hop some hubs" there is a list of options. The first one is Hubs and the second is Q&A, click on this and the page opens with a list of all your questions. Click the question you want to delete, this opens up and then you will four more option with the second being delete. It does take time to actually get deleted. That's it.
Morning to you Ghaelach!
I noticed we can delete our answers, we can delete our comments and we can delete our hubs, so I assumed we could delete Forums that we've started. I don't have anything that I don't want people looking at but rather, I don't need anymore. Example: I started a Forum asking for help why a hub wasn't featured. I got great feedback and I was lucky enough to have my hub featured. I no longer needed the Forum and didn't want to waste Forum space, but if it isn't bothering anyone else than it's fine with me.
--You can delete a forum post within a certain time frame (I think it's about an hour?) using the more button.
--After that the only way to delete it is to "report" the post and ask staff to remove it.
--Even if the first post is removed, all other posts on the thread will stay.
--It's a good idea to leave forum posts up - even now I sometimes have a question and often I'll find the answer though the search function and the thread might be 2-3 years old.

Some of us have mentioned deleting low-performing articles from your Hubs. I sense they do it because it increases views/impressions. How does that increase views/impressions?

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

Please could someone tell me how to delete a draft (not published) Hub? I have saved a number of Hub titles with the intention of writing and publishing them but no longer want to write on these subjects. I can see how to delete a published Hub, but not a draft one. Many thanks.

How many times do you edit an idled Hub before deleting it? Or do you keep it idled so that links to it are still good? Also, for what reasons do you either leave it idled or delete it or still try to fix it? I have one Hub which I've edited a few times, and this last time after I edited it, it...

I made the mistake of responding to a person's comments each time she wrote something new. Then she kept going and going until finally the comments no longer pertained to my article. Now I want to delete all of them because they're of no value to anyone else. How do I delete all comments and all my...

I just recently went through my many hubs and came to realize that almost every hub I did involving youtube videos had broken links. So I went to go fix the links only to find that these hubs were lame. I started deleting all hubs that don't generate traffic or are just plain...
