Reporting myself to a moderator
« on: October 20, 2009, 11:58:29 PM »
There have been a few times when I've posted a message that later I decided was less than helpful (invariably just seconds after I've bit the submit button).  As far as I can tell there's no way for me to do that, and even when I tried to report myself to a moderator for deletion, I get this response:

Quote
You can't report your own post to the moderator, that doesn't make sense!


Maybe the powers-that-be can enable the 'delete this message' button for posts that belong to a user - surely SMF (or whatever forum software this is) has that capability?

Or someone can point me to the button that I'm blind to and I can use it to delete this message...

Couldn't you just edit everything out of the message and replace it with:



or



Personally, I think this would be better as just deleting posts disrupts the flow of the thread, (considering how many here seem to have no life and can respond to a post quicker than you could reach for a delete button :P ).

Imho it's silly of SMF that you can't report your own posts - there's been a few times over the years where I've been in doubt whether something I posted was appropriate (or whatever), and imho it makes a lot of sense to report with a "take a look at that"... or if you end up doing a double-post or...

I just tried again - unsuccessfully...

Am I the only one who sometimes regrets posts they've made?  :P  At least it looks like it's been a while.

I've modified it -- can you give it a try and let me know if it's fixed?

Umm - aren't you supposed to be with family and friends?

(I'm not really trying to be rude - I just want something I can moderator away).

Works for me  :) (Although I only got to the "Reason" page, that wasn't showing before, and I didn't actually want to report my post lol)

I tested it in another thread and it's working.
