How can I delete this?

    You can't; users can't delete posts, even their own. Once made, all you can do is edit the post, and that only for a short time; 15 minutes, I believe.

     

    Regards.

    I believe the hosts can and have done, in cases where embarrassment, private information or technically unsafe details have been included.

     

    At level 2, you can report your own post to the hosts via "report this post."

    The software here does not permit you to report your own post, whether a new post or a reply, regardless of the level you are at.

     

    The way most get around this is to report another post in the thread (if you have permissions to do that) and then to indicate that you are really reporting your own post.

    Like it, Frank Caggiano.

     

    Real cheeky, that ... I'm a bit confused as to why Neville Hillyer chose to open another thread on this one though.    The original, which I hadn't seen at the time, drew a number of good answers.

    I hope the following explains why I started this test thread:

    Hi Frank,

     

    I am sure I have done this in the past, successfully as it were.

     

    I haven't had cause to try recently.


    EDIT.

     

    I checked on some of my recent posts that are beyond the Edit time and foiund out there is no Report Button on Replies I have made.

    I had not noticed that change.

     

    Looks like I am about to be corrected.  (blooming senior moments seem to be getting closer together)
