Modifying and Deleting Your Posts

Posts that you make on a forum can be modified or deleted in any topics that are not locked. This can be useful anytime you need to correct a mistake that you have discovered after a post has been made, or you can opt to remove your post entirely from the topic if needed.



Modifying a post: If you need to go back and correct a mistake, or add more info to your post, find your post within the thread you posted into and then click the Edit button found in the top-right hand corner of your post. You will then be brought to the traditional posting page where you can make the corrections or additions. Once the corrections or additions have been made, simply click the Save Changes button and your changes will be made to the post. Once you've returned to the topic, you'll notice a "Last Edit" timestamp appear in the bottom right-hand corner of your post, letting other members know that changes were made and that they may need to re-read the post to view your changes.



Deleting a post: If you ever need to go back and delete a post that you made on the forum, this can be done by visiting the topic that houses the post that you made. Once you've found your post, click the Post Options icon located in the top-right hand corner of your own post, and then choose the Delete Post option from the drop down menu. Once this is done, your post will be removed from the thread.



If you do not find either the Edit button, or the Delete Post button depending on the action you're wanting to do, then it is likely that the topic your post is located in has been locked. When a topic is locked, no posts can be added, removed, or modified from a thread. If this is the case, then you will want to seek a forum staff member to have them make the modifications you were wanting to make, or delete the post from the forum.

treeslicer: So did you transfer into German then, too? I had enough of French in first year, trying to pronounce barbarisms like "Moi non plus" like the Froggies do. (rofl) Jan 25, 2020 4:09:16 GMT
christain: SMACK!!!----I'm loving this! :D----- (rofl) Now us Scottish---we'd just take your liquor and leave you to kill each other. (rofl) Jan 25, 2020 2:51:02 GMT
RufusScorpius: I was scolded by a French teacher for not speaking good French. I told hear all I hear coming out of her mouth was badly mispronounced provincial Latin. Jan 25, 2020 2:46:55 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: The Roman senator in the animal cage behind my house utters such things usually but we know the Romans used only a bad copy of the Etruscan and Greek letters. Jan 25, 2020 1:06:55 GMT
RufusScorpius: I like your use of the LATIN alphabet. Why not use your own? Oh, wait... Jan 25, 2020 0:45:41 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: It's ok for us barbarians to HAVE, what the Romans had! Jan 25, 2020 0:14:55 GMT *
RufusScorpius: Same thing. You are just imitating. But I understand. You can be LIKE a Roman, but you can never BE a Roman.. Jan 25, 2020 0:02:23 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: The reason may be that the pencil still was in the hand of a degenerated Roman who lost it somehow (the hand, not the pencil)! Jan 24, 2020 22:58:41 GMT
RufusScorpius: Scratching a pencil across paper imitating what you see civilized people doing isn't writing. Barbarian Jan 24, 2020 22:00:06 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: I sometimes write words with a pencil but no one can read them! :'( Jan 24, 2020 21:12:42 GMT
RufusScorpius: Pencils aren't used for writing words anymore. Jan 24, 2020 21:07:27 GMT
nerdthenord: I use pencils exclusively in college now. Try drawing chemical models or doing math problems with a pen that can't be easily erased and you will see that they certainly have their uses. Jan 24, 2020 20:47:35 GMT
MOK: Also, artists use pencils all the dang time! Jan 24, 2020 20:04:04 GMT
MOK: The original line is all about Richelieu boasting about his prowess as a statesman, nothing to do with the relative merits of pens and swords. Jan 24, 2020 20:02:45 GMT *
MOK: "Beneath the rule of men entirely great, the pen is mightier than the sword. Behold the arch-enchanters wand! - itself a nothing! - but taking sorcery from the master-hand to paralyse the Caesars, and to strike the loud earth breathless!" Jan 24, 2020 20:02:16 GMT
stormmaster: people who are mathematicians Jan 24, 2020 19:19:43 GMT
RufusScorpius: Who uses a pencil anymore? They are as obsolete as the sword to which they are supposed to be mightier than. Jan 24, 2020 17:51:40 GMT
