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.


demented: Good mornin/night folks Aug 10, 2020 3:31:20 GMT
Tomt24: I personally wouldn't consider 2,35m overall length as short. But the lightend rear shaft should really help reducing the sluggishness if used in one hand considering the parallel axis theorem. Aug 8, 2020 14:45:30 GMT
MOK: Seems probable, given the shortish haft. Aug 8, 2020 14:22:02 GMT
Tomt24: Just kidding. It is a really interesting piece. From the stats I assume it to be somewhat 1,5 handed in use. Shorter grip for spear & shield, but also be effective in a more halberd like manner if you use it 2 handed. Aug 8, 2020 14:02:34 GMT
MOK: No! No preorders! Preorders bad! (Unless it's something I really, really, REALLY want, natch...) Aug 8, 2020 13:47:06 GMT
Tomt24: Is this a pre-order, Mok? :D :D Let me do a prototype first... Aug 8, 2020 13:32:49 GMT
MOK: I really like the head, too! Seems just the perfect size and shape to fit my taste. Aug 8, 2020 9:48:17 GMT
Tomt24: It is a really interesting piece. Might be worth recreating one in the next months. Aug 8, 2020 2:29:52 GMT
legacyofthesword: It's really rare to find original shafts/handles on artifacts. Thanks for mentioning the Lendbreen spear, I hadn't heard of it before. Aug 7, 2020 19:24:23 GMT
Tomt24: Agree. I would personally prefer ash, but they were kind of opportunistic back then. Hickory wasn't an option in medieval europe ^^. Guess I should have started a proper Thread, will do after my exams are done. Aug 7, 2020 14:08:53 GMT
Scott: Was the original spearshaft made from a coppiced pole? Or a sapling perhaps? Either would make the shaft less likely to break. Aug 7, 2020 5:01:22 GMT
treeslicer: On the spear shafts, ash or hickory would be best, IMHO. Remember that they have to take impact at the head socket without breaking. Aug 7, 2020 3:42:55 GMT
Tomt24: Seen some density and janka ratings where birch is quite similiar to ash. Aug 7, 2020 3:18:34 GMT
Tomt24: I guess it depends on the type of birch. Aug 7, 2020 3:18:00 GMT
lebleuchevalier: I just catalogued my collection. I have 37 bladed objects. I need to unload about 16 items to downsize. Might have a sale soon, although I only expect 7 items to actually sell. Everything else is a give away. Aug 7, 2020 0:38:40 GMT
MOK: Birch IS pretty light. Relatively soft, too, though. Delightful wood to work with, really, I carve spoons out of it all the time. :) Aug 7, 2020 0:33:30 GMT
Tomt24: *birch Aug 6, 2020 22:43:39 GMT
Tomt24: Considering the quite big head weights somewhere in the 400-500g bracket, it makes the entire spear with 2,30m lighter then the common sword. Aug 6, 2020 22:39:46 GMT
Tomt24: Ledbreen is Burch if I remember correctly. Aug 6, 2020 22:38:56 GMT
MOK: What kind of material were you thinking of? Ash? Aug 6, 2020 20:44:46 GMT
