    Once you have made a comment in the forum is it possible to delete it?

    Yes..just click on the 'MORE' button below your comment and select delete. 

    There may be a time limit on being able to do so.  Perhaps someone from the staff can enlighten on the matter.

      thanks timorous, yes there is a time limit but I still wanted to know if it was possible after the time limit.

        After the time limit? The short answer would be no.

    I believe you can edit/delete your comment while it is in editing mode only.
    But I am by no means a Forums guru.
    Why don't you try deleting a post and see if it works!

      Yes you can delete one while it's still in edit mode.

        I have noticed the same thing it depends on how long that option stays open which can vary depending on whether the comment is on one of your own Hubs, in the forum or on someone else's Hub.

    Hello everyone,

    If anyone is curious, I put the theory to a test....

    If you post a comment and you want to delete it, it can be deleted up to about 4 hours from the time you post it. Simply hit the delete button on the post you posted. That would be the maximum time allotted.

      I am sure plenty of people already think that Timorous, even possibly you included. tongue

      But, it was one of the first things I checked on, just because I was curious to see how long a post remained, before it became permanent. wink big_smile

    i think that just about sums it up, you can remove while it's still editable for 4hours according to cags then its there for ever.

    @Brian Slater;
    Unless you're so embarrased about the post, that you may be inclined to put in a request to HP staff, stating your reasons. I'm sure they'd be happy to delete it for you if it's really important to you.
