    has the forum system been changed so that we can't delete our posts ?

    I just started a thread then thought better of it and found I can no longer see an option to delete my post.

    So I've been forced to leave an orphan thread with one character in the body which I expect is confusing for all concerned.

    or am i simply being dim (again) ?

    This may have changed. Now, you need to click on edit message, and then a "delete post" button will appear below the text edit box

    It has always been this way. You cannot delete the first post in a thread because that deletes the thread along with everyone else's posts.

    You are not, however, forced to leave only one character in the body.

    Hmmm... I wonder if you are on double secret probation?

    thanks amin, but surely one should be able to delete a post if it is the first and only one in a thread?

    Can I just delete it?

    Paul that seems reasonable, but software doesn't reason. It just wants rules.

    I totally vaporized it!
