    so how do you properly edit a post so it will be deleted ?
    i put delete in titles i put delete everywhere in them and usually they never delete

    how do you do this ? i have a zillion in parts boards thta need to go just search for delete and youll see, less someone finally deletes them ?

    just trying to help make new room on forum ?

    just like everyone should ?

    no ?


    also can i be banned from parts for sale boards ? i cant seem to stay off them and refrain from posting, its really just a waste of time trying to sell anything but i cant stop it, yes i have a problem,,

    help ?

    if you can then do it asap



    thanks

    I deleted a ton of your posts in the parts boards a while back, along with many of the other threads people marked as deleted. I don't have time right now but later tonight or tomorrow I'll do it again.

    Well the problem is that if the post title hasn't been changed to say "delete" then it can't be mass-pruned so I'd have to go through and delete all of them one by one. You can't mass-delete posts that have a delete notice in the body but not the title. I just deleted all yours since you changed the titles but the rest I have to do individually so I probably won't get around to that for a while.

    I have been putting delete in the title and then droping the mod in charge of that area a pm asking to delete it. It's been working for me, hopefully I am not irritating them when I send them the pm to do the delete my thread. :D

    Yeah, I can have it delete any thread with the word "delete" in the title. You can have it search for any word you want though so I also search for "sold" "found" and "deleted"
