Is there a way for me to be able to go back in and delete/edit my old posts? I can do it on recent post, but not on old ones.

Thanks!

In light of what is going on I would like to go back and remove references to what I might or might not own.

Even if it were deleted here, it will show up in a Google search. That's just life on the Internet.

Posting something on the internet is like gifting it to the world. Just the way it is.

Yep. Google has you indexed within minutes of posting here.

I realize that, but would still like to clean up comments about what I might have had.

So would a lot of us.

But then, a lot of us would come off sounding like fools talking to ourselves if editing or deleting old posts were allowed.

I used to hang on another forum where editing for a few days or forever was allowed.

And then I had my logic or facts turned against me and made to sound like a fool a week after when the OP changed his question or edited his arguments to make my comments sound totally off base and irrational.

I much prefer THR like it is.
You said it, you own it from then on!

It keeps us all honest.
Even though we all know all of us THR members are always honest in the first place!!

Right? :confused:

As RC said you can ruin entire threads. FWIW if you just post links to photos instead of typing it out, you can always delete them where you have them stored. If you uploaded them your still out of luck.
