Hello, i have posted some questions about problems i had find with gentoo. Now when i check what i have posted i can see some of them remainign [unsolved] and it has been so many time since i last checked them so i would like to delete them as they are completely outdated and aren't helpful for others.

So when some one looks for any information they may appear as result of his/her search. I think its a great practice to be able to delete such unhelpful posts to maintain the forum tidy.

:wink:

this is a non-issue; but if you're really concerned, edit your posts and replace all text with "<deleted>"

No, please don't. Point them out to a moderator, we can delete them for you if nothing else is affected by the deletion.

Ok Ok so if i want to delete a post which i am the owner i have to pass the post's ID to a moderator requesting him/her to delete it? I should do that with a direct message to the moderator, shouldn't I?

That link starts a new reply to this thread. I'm assuming you are referring to this thread. I personally will not be going around deleting posts, and think it is poor netiquette for others to do the same.

Yeah, it doesn't make any sense for moderators to go around deleting such threads/posts.

theme, I suggest you do the following:

if "the problem is old and no longer applies"; then do nothing

if "the problem is old and remains unsolved"; then consider providing more information about the problem or perhaps bumping the thread

if "you solved the problem yourself without any help"; then add [SOLVED] to thread title and make a new reply/post detailing what the solution was (for the benefit of others who might have a similar problem and search the forum)

OK?
