    I was thinking it might be nice if there was an option to remove one of your own posts. Any thoughts?

    I think that has been suggested before but not incorporated. However, you can edit it during the first hour after posting it.

    So what I have done in the past is edit my own post and delete all of the content, then after that you can alert it and tell the moderators that you would like to delete it. They have usually done that in the past.

    But if you make a post and then get replies to it, that option may no longer be allowed. I guess it would depend on the content and the moderator.

    In a public forum, if I want to delete my post, I click Edit and add a four-letter word, one of the ones that robomod recognises as a BAD WORD. Then I click the Edit button again. Robomod does its job, removes the post entirely and sends me a roboreprimand which I naturally ignore. Works for me!

    Knowing my luck, the 4 letter word wouldn't be recognised as a bad word by robomod and my obscenity would remain for all the world to see.

    I was thinking of an option to delete a post that you don't want up even after your time to edit it is over.

    I'd have to vote "no" - it makes threads too hard to read if a major player can go through and delete all their posts from it.

    This chess site doesn't support take-backs.

    Tell us which one it is and we'll avoid looking at it.

    Perhaps we should be asking for a facility to add an apology later. Leaves the offending post, but indicates it's not really what you wanted to say.

    We already have a facility for apologizing later. Just make another post.

    Good point.
