    It would make a lot of us happy if we could delete our own posts - is that possible Peter?
    I can enable the delete post button, my concern was that if you delete the main discussion, all comments after that will not make sense.

    Anyone know how to ERASE a draft that I don't need anymore ?

    I also have an "UNANSWERED" that I can neither see what it is about or erase. The "1" stays on even though I click & open it.
    If you go to your drafts, there will be a small x in the top right corner once you mouse over. Click it and the draft will be deleted.

    Paperman, I took my kids to Wreck-it Ralph and thought of you when I saw the title of the short before the movie started. It's Paperman.

    Maybe if the delete button was only available on a duplicate post (same poster twice in succession) and is available via the edit facility?  That way if somebody chooses to post twice they can, but if it is a mistake they can delete?

    Why not just edit your post to say "delete me please" and let the mods take care of it?
  • spraynprayspraynpray Posts: 6,462Moderator
    Mainly because they have enough to do and if it is easily possible to give us the ability to erase our mistakes, why not let us?  It seems I am not the only one who is asking for this and also, it is available on the other forum I'm on.

    With the new forum the mods are bored silly. Nothing to do :-)
  • jonnyapplejonnyapple Posts: 130Moderator
    Yeah, nothing to do but participate in discussions. What's with that?

    JA - maybe we should just go out and pick up some chicks :) but seriously, indeed the new forum gives us more time to do what we supposed to do - moderate and not be a spam fighters. on the old forum, there was rarely a time when after logging in there were no spam, and where more users registered from the ShenZen location than from any other.

    "and where more users registered from the ShenZen location than from any other" 
    What's That all about?  I thought China had a firewall that stopped stuff - so, what - they allow spammers to screw up our sites?  I can't believe they think that we will buy the cr@p they link to after that?

    I have to admit to being naive about all this, can anybody point me to a place where I can find out more?

    This may have been covered and if so, I apologize.

    We used to be able to add a single topic as an RSS feed. This was VERY useful for anything you wanted to keep track of without visiting the site, like PAD.

    Is there any way to add that with the new forum?

    Thanks,
    Ben

    About ShenZhen.....about twenty or more new members a day were registering.  Then they posted long diatribes on Ugs or some other thing. And, I already have my fake Rolex. . :-))  While you were reading and posting we were blocking accounts and deleting spam.  So, now it is about keeping things civil...and for those who need a name change... I might be able to do this.

    Actually, I am busy attempting to gather information for photo opportunities in Colorado.....

    So I have been trying to get to the "PM" private messages inbox and am having a hell of a time finding it.  I click forever and everything and finely it pops up.  It seems it is under "activity"?

    Anyway, confusing as hell (at least for me) and "Activity" as a descriptor for your PM in-box is 100% wrong term - really wrong, really really really wrong.  It should be "Private messages", or mail box.  

    I'm not sure you can change that or not, but it would help.  

    Oh and the pop up of "You've asked questions that now have answers" is really really annoying - it's always in the way for me.  My computer thread has dozens of unrelated posts - why do I have to click all of or any of the answers?  

    Neat tools with the new site - other than my nit-pickyness on some tweaks - I think it is very good, and you rolled it out very well!

    If you look bottom right on the home page and click inbox, there is a big grey button that appears with 'start discussion' on it - easier than the old forum really.

    Also, you can change notifications easily too.

    TTJ, I changed your thread to a discussion instead of a question (question is default). If you ever accidentally start a question again, just know the way to fix it is to edit the first post and click on the 'Start a New Discussion' button, then save it. That will avoid the pop-ups.

    As I mentioned earlier - is there a way to remove all extraneous lines between quotes and text?  Perhaps putting a line like this ---------------------------------- between the quote and the posters comment?  It would save space on the page and make things clearer.

    I am wondering if this works?
    So, I clicked the <> icon and then brought the text up to the last line of the quote.  But, this may be changed in the future....

    You mean like this?

    EDIT: I think you can do that without using the <> but you can easily delete some code and screw it all up (as I have done before).

    It would be good if the blue highlighting stayed after posting to separate the quote from the text - that would save the space taken by  line too.

    Not a problem, but a suggestion: Can you pin the 'deals' thread to the front page? Would hate to miss a good one. 
  • PeterPeter Posts: 178Administrator
    @shawnino: you can bookmark the discussion by clicking the star on the right - that way you will be receiving emails for every newly posted comment and hopefully not miss a deal. I prefer not to pin this discussion to the very top.

    I think this is coming from the Wysiwyg editor. I have another solution which I will enable in 2-3 days.

    BTW: can You make the forum width at least 1024px? 
    I'll upvote/+1 that. 

    Or is it possible to make it a user adjustable setting, so we can manage that for ourselves? 
    ;)
    I like it as it is ..  can I down vote that one :-)
    Self managed settings would be good.
