    Hello,
    I was wondering if there was a way to delete the following wordpress forum post that I asked a question on which no one replied to.
    Is that possible? I just want to delete it,
    Thanks

    You can only delete content in your posts until 60 minutes after the post was created.

    Sorry, I won't because I'm not allowed to.

    Oh.. how come?

  8. It is not the general policy to edit or delete forum posts. When a post is made and people contribute answers to an issue, that then becomes part of the community resource for others to benefit from. Deleting posts removes this added value. In extreme circumstances, the moderation team might be persuaded to remove sensitive information but. generally, your best course of action is not to publish anything that you wouldn't want to be public.

    I'm sorry but this is not an extreme case.
