Question Can I delete a message, or can Admin do it for me?

Can I delete my messages, and if I can, how is it done?

I accidentally posted this message twice. If there are any Admins on here, can they please delete this post:

Best thing to do is if you can still edit the message, clear it all out and just put a NM in the field for No Message.

Yeah, please don't do that. In the future, if you are unable to edit a post and there is an issue feel free to report it. This function exists so we can be told when there is a problem. No reason to post about it being a duplicate or anything, just report and describe the issue. Can be from anything like this to another member violating community rules. We are here to help, but the report function is a direct line towards assistance for an issue we might not catch.

OK I just did as a last resort as couldn't find any way to delete a message and couldn't find any information on how to contact any admins. I assumed the report feature was the only way anybody could be asked anything, but guess even you can't remove posts then, if it's still on.

Things typically aren't removed, for various reasons, but double postings and other such things can easily be cleared up with proper notification.

Lower left corner. The red triangle with an exclamation point inside. Just click on it.
