    Is there a way of deleting threads & posts?

    Is there any way to delete my really dumb question that I posted and then afterwards discovered how thick I am? I couldn't find a way to delete it so I closed the thread instead.

    Look under the edit tab and you can delete it from there. Took me a while to work out what to do but it does work

    Just send a message with a link to your started thread and ask Admin to delete it - it's that simple.

    No question is dumb if the answer may help others who don't know it.

    Agree. As I always look for something new and strange

    Beware, there is one way that you can delete an entire thread, by mistake, without being a mod.

    If you are the Original Poster (started the thread) and you delete the first post then the entire thread gets deleted.
    (It's a quirk of the vBulletin software that underpins the forum).

    Safer just to close the thread to prevent any further replies.

    Yeah I closed it. I found that as OP I couldn't delete my original post so the thread had to stay, but it only had my question (which was definitely dumb, but ty for the vote of confidence.)
