Missing Stuff Since Speedtalk Came Back???

Post by Ken0069 » Wed Feb 20, 2019 3:46 am

I noticed that the "Delete Post" option on new posts you make is no longer available?? Before the shut down you were allowed 30 minutes to delete your post if you so desired. There was an "X" along side the edit tool "!" that allowed you the option to do this that is now missing.

Also, I noticed that you can no longer post pictures here as there is NO WAY to upload them to the server? :(

Hi Ken,
I uploaded a few BBC pics on this thread yesterday http://www.speedtalk.com/forum/viewtopi ... 2&start=15 with no problem, not sure what's happening.

Hummm, I guess I need to double check the picture thingie then. Thanks

Edit, just checked and this General Discussion section along with the Politics/Religion/Current Events section has NO Attachment tab so they have removed that option from those sections and possibly more others that I haven't checked.

Man, I miss Don more and more each day!!! ](*,)

Actually I made a mistake in this post. The "Edit" function is a pencil icon not this "!".

Delete works fine. You have to use the X in the top right corner instead of "edit post" and then click the "delete post" checkbox. I've used it twice in the last 4 days.

Hmm... It's not there now. That's weird. "Delete Post" is still available to use in Engine Tech by using the "X" in the top corner, though. I assume the other tech sections are still like that, also. So maybe it's just certain subforums that don't allow deletion of posts?

Sorry for the late response, didn't know anyone else had replied to this post.

Yup, Politics, Religion and Current Events forum DID have the DELETE function in it before Don died, but not now? DELETE is in some of the forums though?

I've sent TWO PM messages to the Admin trying to get it put back in but had NO action on this request to date and it's been about a MONTH ago that I did that? :( That DELETE function works well when you decide that you shouldn't have said this or that on that part of the board. Sometimes cooler heads prevail with time and DELETE function helps with that.

Just saying................................

I agree. I've used it multiple times for that very reason.

There may be someone else you can try to contact. Let me look at something.


See if you get any response from this guy. Pretty sure he's helping out around here now. He was just here on the 12th. So it may take a few days.

You can also try reporting a post. Last time i did, someone contacted me to ask about the person/post I reported. I believe it was that Jayson guy I posted above, IIRC. It's been since the forum came back online so it had to be somebody new.

Got a PM from a guy on this Delete thingie today. He was wanting additional info so I sent him a reply telling him what had happened. Maybe it will be fixed soon.

Part of the not being able to delete happened a few years ago. We had a poster that IF he didn't get the respect he expected or was challenged he would go back and delete his posts in the thread. This tended to make the thread senseless overall. It's too bad because the guy had some good tech. If you think long enough you might remember who was a prolific deleter.

I don't know the issue here but I think the non delete is a good thing.
I think we have 20 minutes or so to correct or add to a post.
If one puts it in writing then it should stay there.
I just wish we had more real names here.
