Look at the yellow bar below this post, you will see a button, "Contact moderator". Click on that and send your request to FE.

Not sure how it can be done though, as removing yours will involve removing many post from other forum users as well. Contact FE though and he will explain if this is possible. J.

why do you want to remove?it will help others like myself that search for solutions to thier problems.but if there is any that you want to edit or remove then do as Djohn says above.

Surely the post you have made will be of help to other users. J.

I have been on sight for awhile now and originally came here because I am in the process of learning myself (so many things to know in in the IT world)and my personal postings are growing rapidly and was just curious if I could get rid of some that I would not need .Then again if it involves everybody else I'll live with it.....

Thanks for the respones

they form part of our forum archive, so like it or not your words are there for posterity.

Your posts aren't taking up any space on your machine of course - they're archived in our databases - so if you don't need to see them you don't have to, just don't look.

Is there not a way to attribute 'My Postings' only to the actual person starting the thread?

When I first went to this section I didn't expect every thread to come up where perhaps I had just made a comment or a 'refresh'.

All the threads would still be archived for searching.

It would make each members postings list so much shorter and also make it easier to search for one of your own threads.

My list of over 10 pages contains only about a dozen questions that I started.

This could be done, but feedback tells us that it isn't what forum members generally want.

It's what I want and I'm sure many others would agree.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
