    Default Edit/delete my own post

    Is it not possible to do this? I couldn't find a button to do this, just minutes after I posted erroneously. Thanks.

    You cannot delete your post, but you can edit it. Since it requires something like 15 characters to be in a post, you'll have to delete your post and enter a series of dots or some other text. Most TC folks just enter something like this:

    .................................
    "All of Italian opera can be heard in [Bellini's] "Ah! non creda [mirarti]."
    --Renata Scotto in "Scotto, More Than a DIva."

    Thanks for the reply. But I don't see an edit button anywhere:

    Maybe I remember wrongly, but it could be that you have to reach say 10 posts on the forum before you'll have the option of editing any. The editing option of any post also runs out after a certain number of hours, maybe it's 24 (?).

    A sticky at the top of this scetion of the forum might be a good idea - this question is asked quite often, and I'm trying to find the answer - I think you have to have 10 posts too, and the time limit is 12 hours..

    I think you are right, can't find it so quickly , that said, you can always contact the mods.
    Their names are on the bottom of the screen beneath the tread.

    Taggart, TurnaboutVox, mmsbls, Huilunsoittaja in this case.

    My mistake. I should have looked at your post count. I believe joen_cph has the correct answer. You are three posts away from editing ability.

    Once you have completed your 10th posting in any of the "classical music fora" ... AND ... up to 12 hours have elapsed since that 10th posting, you will be automatically promoted to "Junior Member" and then gain access for editing your own posts.

    There is, however, a time limit on editing a post, and that is 12 hours. After the 12 hours have elapsed you will not be able to edit that post, and will then have to contact a staff member by PM.

    If you are the originator of a new thread things are a little different. You can still edit that first post in a new thread provided that nobody has replied to your post. Once that has happened, only a staff member can edit the first post in a new thread.

    You do have the ability to access your profile at any time. The former profile access limitation for new members was removed due to GDPR regulations.

    Hope this clears up things for you. If you have further questions contact me or any staff member directly via Private Message.

    I have more than 10 posts and there are some threads where I can't edit or delete.

    I seem to remember deleting something so if I can edit I assume I can also delete.

    Please PM me with the URL of the thread(s) so that I can see what might be happening.


    Regular members are unable to "delete" posts. That is a function reserved for forum staff only.

    A few members as an alternative edit the post (within the time limit of 12 hours) remove the text and re-save with dots or asterisks (at least 15 of them).

    When we come across those kinds of edited posts we will then delete the post. We do not make a habit of searching for those kinds of posts, rather if we come across any while we are perusing the site as any other member would do.

    I didn't realize about the time limit on editing. It makes sense to have one.

    I was probably on another forum if I was deleting something.
