Feel free to move this post. I couldn't post in User Orientation, I didn't have "permission". I'm trying to figure out how to delete a post. I posted in the VTSM Removal Logs Forum. Then I added a post after to add something. As soon as I did it I thought that was probably not a good idea because then I don't have 0 replies, so someone may think I'm being helped. I couldn't find how to delete that night but didn't know if it would be an issue or not.
Tonight as I was going through the forums, I saw that a moderator posted to someone else that the boards were searched for topics with 0 replies and to not post anything else to that topic.
I'm not expecting an answer to my Virus issue already, because I know the boards are busy right now. But I did want to delete that post - it wasn't critical and I do want my topic to read 0 replies so someone knows I need help when it is my turn to be looked at. :thumbsup:

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits

To answer your question only moderators and above are able to delete posts. If the situation should arise again or for anyone who reads this topic. You may PM any moderator for assistance if it is a timely or 'personal' matter. Otherwise if it just an error you wish cleaned up with no timeframe imperative because you have reposted or misposted. You can post a request for moderator action in the Bleeping Computer Tidiness topic and a staff member will get to it and 'clean it up'.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)
