I posted “Valle Vidal Advice Wanted” in the “Philmont” Forum and the “Trip Planning” Forum. These postings are no longer valid as I’ve changed my route. I would like to delete both posts, then re-post an updateded version. How can I delete the old posts?Jan 23, 2023 at 10:19 am #3771147Gary OBPL Member
Did you ever get a response to this? This site lacks customer friendliness. I’ve tried to delete a post and it keeps telling me because I’m beyond the 30-day limit, I can’t edit it and there’s no where I can find about how to delete it.Jan 23, 2023 at 10:33 am #3771175No Limu, just DougBPL Member

PM moderator Matthew and ask him to delete the post, tell him why. He’s pretty good at responding to such requests.Jan 23, 2023 at 4:56 pm #3771208matthew kModerator
Yep Doug is right. I’m great at responding to these requests. You can PM me any time.
There’s a short edit window for users and users cannot delete posts but I’m happy to do it or I can edit posts as needed.
I see two posts from Mart on that topic and there are a bunch of responses. I’m not inclined to delete the original post of a thread that has been responded to by so many people. I don’t think it’s weird at all to post “hey my plans have changed and I’m going from this other trailhead now” or whatever.Jan 23, 2023 at 4:58 pm #3771209matthew kModerator
It does look like I missed Mart’s original post. That does happen. I have a day job as a teacher in a public high school and Jan 13, 2022 was the beginning of the semester. Sorry about that.
PM is a great way to ensure I see something.
