Re: Can you not delete a post?

The edit window for posts is 20 minutes - after that, you need to create a new post for corrections. You cannot 'delete a post as such at any time, but if you wish to you can edit it to 'deleted'.

The reason for the short edit window goes back to some time when there was a spate of people making posts, then deleting them for some reason after others had replied, making the threads look stupid.

If it is that important to delete something after the window, you can 'report' the post and ask a mod if they can oblige.
