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.

Is it possible to delete your own forum thread? I posted a thread which I would like removed, how do I do this?

I just noticed that comments I delete from the 'comments' section on my accounts page are not being deleted from the actual hubs. One of my hubs gets spammed a lot by people posting links and email addresses for 'quack' healthcare. I have clicked the 'spam' button and then clicked...

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...

Paul.. love being able to delete comments, but can we also have the option to delete fans? There are some who are really intent on promoting themselves that way, and will try again once they've seen their fanmail has been denied.

This has been perplexing me for a while - has something changed or have I just gone ga-ga?Being in a different time zone from most Hubbers, I rely on being able to click the "Your" button to catch up with who's posted on threads since I commented.Recently I've been missing comments...

It is a holiday weekend in the US. But if you put a photo on the internet - expect it to be copied and used.That is how your hubs are produced - Stolen pictures of hot sexy Indian girls?Maybe Shinu will use that photo in a "Hot sexy Indian fiancees," hub.And why not?
