Post withdrawn by author


#68

That is the freedom you have my friend. But nor does anyone have to abide by your proclamations.


#69

This is going nowhere useful.


#70

Heck, it started nowhere useful.


#71

OK, I just made a big blunder and started an erroneous thread.
It was a perfect example of why withdrawals should be allowed.
I tried to figure out how to delete it, before others saw it and wasted their time, but couldn’t.
So I edited it instead.


#72

Hey, back on topic. I like that!


#73

I deleted the thread for you. For future reference, you can flag your own post if it needs moderator attention.


#74

Ok, thanks, Rasmus. So, in effect, there is no real “Post withdrawn by author” function? One needs to ask for it?

What gets my goat is the “must have x words” to title and post.
“Thanks” being the best example.

I hope Abram finds fulfillment.

Thanks pvc. I’m a moderator on three other boards (on other topics) so I should have known better. At 82, sometimes my youthful exuberance gets the best of me! LOL!
Regards, Nate :smiley:

Useful for who? You? Sure. From your perspective.
And look…the threads-of-interest poster has shown up here and has not said anything resembling a problem with whatever flows from his reference threads.

Look…I get staying in the realm of the topic title so as to give readers a reasonable expectation of what they’re going in to read. But c’mon… sometimes things just pop up, have a short jog, settle the matter and then inevitably return to the topic title.
Why must that be the end of the world?

Your list; your rules. Simple as that. Great site.


#90

Now we’re getting whole threads withdrawn. People were trying to help and boom withdrawn at author’s request.


#91

I’m not seeing any deleted threads in the logs, other than those removed by moderators.


#92

There was one that I saw. Some good advice and a bit critical of the OP. She request removal of the thread. I thought some of the advice going away was a negative.


#93

It’s not a problem. We have an abundance of redundant free advice.

Who cares whether it gets deleted or fades into oblivion?


#94

I still miss Doc Jake, though :’(
