    How to delete a post.

    Hi,
    "Addison is seen as a conciliator between town and country."
    Town and country both are countable nouns, but why there is no articles used.
    Thanks.
    PS: Sorry, please anyone help me to delete this thread.

    Re: Is articles needed ?

    You should be able to delete it yourself. Click "Edit Post" and then tick the "Delete" button, then Delete Post.

    Re: Is articles needed ?

    When you click "Edit Post", it takes you to a screen with your post in. Under the box where you type it says "Reason for Editing" and there is a grey box with the word "Optional" under it.

    Now look further to the right and there are four buttons, marked "Save", "Go Advanced", "Delete" and "Cancel". Click Delete and follow the instructions.

    Re: Is articles needed ?

    I still can not find it. I think it is not possible to delete a thread but it is possible to delete a post by a general member.
    Maybe something wrong with mine.
    Again thanks.
    Here are two screen shots:

    Re: Is articles needed ?

    I wanted to delete it because I made a double post(two threads) of the same topic.
    But now, I think there is some good advice from emsr2d2
    . It may be helpful to others.

    I too have a thread I started (it has no replies) that I can not delete. I can "Save", "Go Advanced", or "Cancel". Under the advanced, I can "Save Changes" or "Preview Changes". No delete to be found. It looks exactly like the screen shots Sumon put up.
