Hi All

 

There should be a delete post option under advanced reply.

 

The reason for this is because many times when i post the post doesnt go through due to sn error and when it finally does then 2 duplicate posts get posted.

 

This issue could be fixed if there was a delete post option.

 

What does everyone think?

When it happens, just report the duplicate post and ask for it to be removed. I can't see them ever giving us a delete post option.

@zahra_javid found this on the forum from ex giffgaff staffer.

This is not suitable as we need a record of everyting people post on our forums. Just in case something goes horribly wrong. I'm sure you can think of aweful scenarios and why we need records of what happened. If not, I'll be happy to discuss this in private.

@zahra_javid
You could also just edit the 2nd post and erase all the text. That way whatever you posted would still be kept on record as the previous revision of the post but you wouldn't have to wait for a moderator to delete one for you.
