Edit, Delete, and Moderator Ikons

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
When I'm signed in, all of my posts show three ikons in the lower left corner of each post. They are Edit, Delete, and Moderator. I noticed that someone who has been a member since December, 2012 had a post with one word -- "deleted". I suggested that he use the Delete ikon to remove his message and he replied that he couldn't find the Delete Ikon. I know he can see the Moderator flag, but I'm not sure if he can see the Edit pencil. I'd like to know why there seems to be a difference in what we are seeing. Thanks.

Yes, it's a permissions thing. Newer members have less permissions than more established members.

Thanks for the information. What should I tell him about when he might have "Delete" capability?

Anyone who doesn't have the ability to delete can always flag their own post for a mod to take care of.

I don't think I understand. Is there a reason that younger members shouldn't be able to delete a duplicate (or simply unwanted) post?

It's just the way this software platform is designed.

If by younger you mean age I don't think that's the case. I've always assumed everyone had the same edit and delete capability. It seems like I would have used both starting day one back in 2002.

With the new software, if you write something really dumb, you have to use edit to revise it back to sanity, and then delete it. The delete command leaves a link to the final post that others can see. eek.gif
