How do you "delete a post"?

I’ve seen this now and then: “this post deleted by poster”

How do you do that?

Our intent was that you could delete a post as long as it was within the normal edit window, which was originally 5 minutes but has since been increased to 15 minutes. But we recently discovered that users were able to delete posts regardless of when they were posted, though it was limited to one delete per day. Since the delete function was broken, we removed it.

You can still edit the post (within the 15 minute edit window) to say “nevermind” or some variation of this, just as you were able to do under the old vBulletin software. You could manually type in “post deleted by author” if you’d like.

If having the “nevermind” post there bothers you and you want the post removed completely, as long as you edited the post to say “nevermind” (or similar) within the edit window, just report the post and a friendly moderator will delete it for you.

I am really sorry to muck up your thread. I haven’t really been around since vBulletin and was trying to figure out how to respond to a thread without replying directly to a poster.

Carry on.
