I can't seem to delete my comment on another person's hub

    I can't seem to delete my comment on another person's hub

    Can we? or at least edit it?

    You only have 5 minutes to edit it or delete it.

    You can only do that while you are there right after writing it. After it sets only the hub owner can remove it.

    Good question. Yes you can edit your own comment , but only for a short period time, if you create a comment that you would like to correct that is on another person's hub.

    I think there is a little short light blue sentence that states, " edit your comment, " after you have commented.  If you need to make a correction place your pointer on "edit your comment," and click. I believe you may only have five , or less minutes to make your corrections.

    I often correct my comments because of occassional spelling errors. I type fast, and make a few mistakes.

    I always take my time when I comment. Also don't forget that if someone else is not happy with a particular comment, the comment you have made can be denied by the author of the hub.

    The important thing to remember is that we are all human, and subject to making errors. Sometimes if we can not correct our errors, the hub author can from his side of the podium. Don't worry. Your a great commentor. Your one of my fans, and I am one of yours.

    God Bless You.

    I can see that other people have answered your question.

    I just wanted to add a suggestion, which might be helpful.

    I tend to write quite fulsome comments, and to avoid being trapped by the 5 minute edit cutoff, I sometimes write what I want to say in Word, check, edit, revise etc there, and when I'm happy, just cut and paste the whole thing into the comments section.

    I have no idea whether your desire to change a particular comment is because of typing errors, or, for want of a better description, 'post-comment regret'.

    But writing what you want to say, in a separate environment, can help alleviate both problems. I've certainly decided on more than one occasion, not to send a comment I initially thought I felt strongly about. Nobody but me any the wiser.

    Agree with glenn that's why whenever you comment on hub thik before and then write..

    In continuation of what others have said: Your only other alternative is to contact the Hubber, explain, and ask them to delete the comment. Some will probably do as you request, others won't.

    Comments aren't deletable unless your the Hub's author itself, you also can only moderate your comments posted onto your own hubs.  I never tried moderating one of my comments on a hub of mine, but I'll try to do so since you came up with this question.

    If you don't like a comment you've typed try to think before clicking the submit button.  We are all accountable for what we do on the web today, so by thinking about your intention prior to releasing it to the public for viewing, it will help you to prevent from unwanted messages being sent, from you to others to read.

    ditto what everyone else said. 
    Because it is not easy to delete comments, I have learned to:

    1. Make sure I always say something positive or respectful (there are a couple comments I wish i could take back or edit).

    2. proofread before hitting the submit button.

    3. learn to live with the fact that I am not perfect.

    4. try not to worry about it; hopefully other Hubbers will forgive you for typos and presentation.
