Delete images in Profile

I have (had) 35 pages of images saved on my profile. put there on various postings over the past 12 years ! ! ! .

Decided that they need to be deleted, as they are of no interest to me now..

So.. I selected " Check All"... then  had to select "Delete all selected"   after that process I had to confirm delete.. ok.. no problems so far..

Waited for the process to complete... with a message  " Success! We deleted the selected images"....

 

However... I will have to do that another 34 times, to delete the remaining pages....

 

Why does it not "delete ALL" ..  ( or am I missing something here ? ? ? )

Re: Delete images in Profile

Because it the 'Check All' is for that page only.

Re: Delete images in Profile

I "kinda" guessed that.... just wondered why the system can only cope with one page at a time... and if there was an alternative way of deleteing them all...

 

hence the question at the end of the post... ( or am I missing something here  ? ? ?  )

not that I'm aware of - the easiest way would have been to be able to delete the album, but that doesn't look possible.
Maybe a quirk of the software.

Re: Delete images in Profile

Perhaps the Community Gaffer should be notified, and some changes made then....  Highly unlikely though, judging by recent occasion.

@shutter 

One possible drawback of 'Delete All' applying to ALL pages in your list of images would be that ALL your images would be deleted!  i.e. even recent ones which might make some of your recent posts unintelligible or completely irrelevant!

Re: Delete images in Profile

@RobPN  Well, they have all been deleted,... except one... that avatar .gif  !..

 

so if the postings don`t make sense now.... nobody will be bothered about it.   or they can ask me for further clarification on any matter, via P.M. ! !  Smiley

Re: Delete images in Profile

Not really.... they are all "old"  and not showing on the first page... so nobody will be interested in them anymore.. unless they are re-directed by either a link, or another member....so... if the thread is un-intelligble, they still know who wrote it.. and can proceed from there, either contact me,.. or go elsewhere.
