And yet the time-limited Delete function is already working in Self Promotion.

Well they couldn't edit those posts anyway because they would have been created by others. I can just say, as I have before, that those forums that have a delete function have not thereby plunged into chaos
Forum Admin wrote:As for Self-Promotion forum posts having a user Delete function... I recall I included this to allow users to come back and delete gig posts, event posts etc that had happened and which had no other intrinsic value in being kept for historic reasons.
Unfortunately, as I said above, the Self Promotion Delete function is
time limited, so unless the gig was cancelled within 45 minutes of the original post being made you couldn't do anything about it anyway.
I'm not really being bolshy here, as I said earlier I do accept the decision . It's just there are inconsistencies here that maybe you don't realise yourself. Still, not to worry.
