Hello Folks,

Recently, we've had some difficulties with users deleting their own posts and threads.

While sometimes this is handy when you make a mistake, it can also be quite frustrating to other users when there's been a discussion that several members have contributed to that is deleted.

Some deletions have happened accidentally and that still wipes out the entire thread or post and we can't recover it.

So, we've changed the forum so that members:
  • cannot delete a post or thread
  • can edit any of your posts.
If you've asked a question and found the answer yourself, feel free to post the answer for the benefit of the community.

If you've responded, or otherwise contributed, to a thread, but wish to change your post's wording, you can edit your individual posts.

In the event that you feel a post or thread should be deleted entirely, please PM a moderator and we'll check into it for you.

Thanks for your understanding.

Eric
