Oh really? Usually forums running tapatalk give a wee pop up on my phone when I log in. Never got one here!

Anyways, excellent :D

Correct, they do but I edited that bit out coz it was annoying the crap out of everyone. A pretty underhanded move by tapatalk to get folk to buy their product.

I like your way of thinking. :thumbup: don't let the software control you, you control/customize it. :wink:

Would it be possible to have some means of deleting our own posts within threads please. Maybe an X for delete post next to the edit btn

It would be handy for clearing up any clutter viewtopic.php?f=18&t=26817 or if one decides they don't want the post anymore. I know we could just go in an edit but this would just clutter the thread up with a null post.

I think this already exists. I'm sure I have binned a double post before after publishing it. Unless it only lasts a limited time.
Yes it does, look next to the edit button after you post and there's a cross to delete.
Just went off and had a look at a couple of older posts and you're right fella the facility is removed after a period of time, maybe after someone else responds?

Thanks for the reply Chris. It makes sense as when posts are deleted it makes responses read very strange indeed as was the case when prolific posters such as Caz & Timbo removed theirs.

OH fook. I have just noticed I have lost my edit function viewtopic.php?f=31&t=14214#p238580 so I can't add to it. Loosing the edit function is worse than not having a delete. Foe example: Sometimes when I go through old threads, I may spot a spelling mistake in one of my old posts that I would go in and correct.

I hear what you saying Kev. But if a user closes an account I think all their posts should disappear as well. Maybe moved to an archive section :think: It's bad enough these days with all our data and info spread all over the net. I know it's true in reality that once anything is put on the net it can never be deleted and one should never post anything they may regret later :roll: I could go back and search the Internet and all it's content as it was 20 years ago. Mmm it is a worry.

Back to the edit function, this is even more important and vital in cases like my link above :eek2 I am now going to have to copy and paste, add more content and re-post further down which will put things even more out of context and confusing. I cant even put a link in it to direct people ie read below or post moved here. Or do I just leave it incomplete. The only other option is to either not post stuff until it's completed, which is not always convenient as there may be relevant info ready to go public. Or just add bits as new posts further down which spreads stuff all over the place. When finished, start a new thread and copy and paste all the bits of the jigsaw and piece them all together in the new thread. Which would just be even more chaotic and would introduce more work for mods/admin with regards to tidying things up.

Argghhh how frustrating. :x I was going to add some more to that today as well!!! :sad2
Another problem in the world of digital life to hack, find a work around because of restrictions :lol:

Thanks for the reply Chris. I hope you understand where I'm coming from :thumbup:
