 I don't believe that you can delete them completely.  But if you edit them, be sure to select the "Use Full Editor" option, as that will allow you to edit the title, as well as the text body.

 

Remember though, you can only edit your own posts.  If other people have replied to your topic, and you want those responses to go away too, you'll need to contact one of the moderators to help you with that.

It's reeeeally odd that option is not available, like why? Sometimes (my topics at least) don't get any views or replies. It's just dead & no can't delete. I once tried contacting support but got no answer back. So all I can really do is just edit it and put "deleted"..

Well the thing is, it's likely that your topics are being read.  But notations about how many total views they have gotten don't show up until someone has posted at least one reply. Otherwise "views" just sit at zero, even if lots of people have actually read the topic.   It's another one of the little technical glitches here I'm afraid, and didn't used to be like that years ago. 

 

My sense is that being responsible members of this community means seeing that everyone's topics receive a reply, but I've noticed recently that there seems to be a rise in posts that never get answered.  Not sure why it should be that way recently - Maybe people are just feeling more overwhelmed these days, with all of the shit that's been going on in the world ?   In any case, everyone needs to keep an eye out for those "zero" threads, and make sure they get answered I think.   If they get answers, it also bumps them back up to near the top of the forum again, where they get a second chance for more responses too.

Great forum with great flaws.

Great forum with great flaws.

This means, if someone quotes me I will not know about it and I will not reply,

 

and I dont want people to think that Im not giving them any attention or that I am being a snob
