How do you delete messages/threads I suck at this ui and what to know for general knowledge!
...so, when you're replying or starting a thread, it's always a good idea to hit "Preview", and read what you wrote, and check fot typos, etc, before pressing "Post".
This “feature” is a large part of why I don’t join in more discussions here.
... and to your credit you're the kind of gobby mofo who has no compunction in saying so. I dread to think how many other people are just silently put off by this.
I'm not keen on it. I understand the reasons for having it but there are other solutions. For example, allow editing until someone else responds on the same thread. I've seen this on other forums.
The big one for me is that the replies and subject changes here are often more interesting than the starting post. The ability to delete a post with replies messes that up. I’m not against the idea of post editing (with some ‘edited’ indication).
When the Edge started, we had Big Talk and Small Talk. Small was meant to be quicker and of the moment. The lack of editing options sort of worked for that. But as we know, that distinction didn’t work out. Maybe it’s time for the UI choices to be reconsidered too.
Would this help?
