The community team launched a message board enhancement last night that allows users to edit and delete their own posts. Some of you have discovered this already and have posted comments about it on a separate thread. Thanks for sharing your feedback. Keep it coming.
Here's some details on how it works:
- Only authors can edit and delete their own posts (Exception: Admins will continue to be able to do this)
- If a post is edited, then we indicate in the header the last date that an edit was made.
- Authors can edit subject line, message body, and attachments.
- We'll let you delete a post entirely if there are no replies to it yet. However, once there is a reply then we keep the header with your username in the thread to let users know that the post was deleted.
