    Since I'm a mod I don't remember with 100% clarity what the permissions are. There should be some links under your post that say, edit, delete, that you can use. But I'm pretty sure you can't delete entire threads without asking a staff member. If the discussion is underway and people are responding, we won't always delete unless it's something personal that you don't want public anymore or something.

    If you go to their profile by clicking on their avatar or username, there'll be an option to "start a conversation" and you can send a private message that way.

    But first it's a good idea to go to the forum you posted your thread in and see who's assigned to that forum. Mods don't have global permission, we have limited power in forums we're not assigned to. Admins have global power, though.

    I would suggest if you want something, even the OP of your own thread removed ASAP, you can edit, if the edit button is still visible, and just erase the whole thing until a moderator can accede to your wishes and delete the whole thread you started. While a post is able to be done the same way.
    Is it that you want to remove all evidence you posted here those last 7 posts?

    Is there any way that a member only can delete incoming PM's? I can find no way to do this.

    What do you mean only delete incoming PM's? Stop someone from PMing you?

    1.6: Members are expected to take responsibility for what they post online. While personal information or copyrighted information may be removed by the Staff upon request, the Staff are not obliged to remove large quantities of posts. If you do not wish to be a member any longer, the simplest course of action to take is to not log in. Accounts cannot be deleted. Staff members are not obliged to delete any posts if requested but may consider such requests on an individual basis.

    Threads started by members become the property of christianforums.net as cited in ToS 1:11 and are not to be considered as a member's thread or otherwise "owned".

    If Edward is looking to stop PM's themselves they can go to "Contact Details" . Found if they mouse over their own screen name at the top of the forum. The drop down menu will have Contact Details linked on the left of that menu. Scroll down and remove all check marks to insure no contact through PM.
    If someone PM's that you don't want to read, you can click on the PM but not read it and then at the top of that PM you'll see your options to deal with it. "Leave Conversation". Click that, you'll have two options. Leave but be open to more PM's from that person. Or leave and block all future contact.

    Hi
    I don't want to delete the replies I receive from my posts and threads, It's just my own posts and threads that I publish that I want to delete.

    I know it might sound strange but I would appreciate if someone could let me know if this can be done.

    Thanks

    Dan W

    If we remove all of your posts, the replies will make no sense at all. Imagine having a conversation in which the person starting the discussion suddenly left the building taking with them all memory of everything they contributed if that were possible. That would be rude leaving everyone else totally confused.

    It might be helpful if you can provide more explanation about why you want to do this. If you'd like for that conversation to be held privately between you and the staff, you can start a new thread in the Talk With The Staff forum. Maybe we can find another solution that will meet be satisfactory.
