How to Delete my post??


OK I must be missing something.
I made a double post.
I can not figure out how to delete one of them.
I did look in faq but did not find how.
A little help here please.

You can't delete posts. However, what you can do is report the second post (click on the Report button at the bottom right hand side of the post) and explain the situation. The mods will delete it for you.

You cannot delete a post yourself.

Please use the Report button at the bottom of the one you want deleted to explain that it is a duplicate and request that it be deleted.

Thanks!

Thanks

Just to advise, I believe there still may be a forum bug where you see a duplicate post, but it actually is the same post. See the link ID information in the numbered link of your post. If the hyperlinks are the same, it would be that bug. I ran into that when someone did report a dupe, only to find out that removing the second post, deleted both. So I had to reverse and leave it alone.
