Basically, a super has jurisdiction over all the forums instead of just certain ones. We also have a few extra options here and there.


Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / EVGA GTX 760 2GB
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB / WD Red 3TB
G.SKILL Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1600 - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2x2GB DDR3 1600
Win7 Ult 64-bit - Func MS3 Mouse - CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Mech Keyboard

dats kool. but yeah, a delete button would be uber nice.

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

There will not be a delete button. And you can only edit your own posts for a certain amount of time. There's too many problems that can happen if one could delete their own threads/posts: like deleting the other posts in the thread, or making replies not make sense.

As Trotter said, a Mod can delete it if it doesn't affect other posts (and it's usually soft-deleted anyway).

A soft-delete makes the post or thread not available to the public, but it's still in the database.

I can say the same thing about other forums. There are other forums that don't have them, too.

Dave one question i would like to ask:

Why when you delete the post it dosn't effect a quote from that post?

Visit this and do something for the world!

Want to do even more? Take a look here and join the fight on human trafficking.

Hear and you forget, see and you remember, do and you understand.
