That's kind of bad in a way, if you think about it. Your information is no longer your information...Any comments on that ?
There have been several times I wanted to go back and delete or edit comments I have made. I have found lately that you can no longer delete a post altogether, even immediately afterward. All you can do is edit the contents. When you click on the 'edit/delete' button, the delete option no longer exists.
The ability to remove images from posts is one of the reasons I use Photobucket instead of downloading photos directly to this site. I have posted home made wiring diagrams before that had errors and needed to be edited. If I had downloaded them directly to HRBB I would not be able to remove them without the help of a moderator (as far as I know).
Up until a few months ago, I could replace images on Photobucket and give them the same name/link so the replacement would show up on posts that were months/years old. But they don't let you do that anymore.
Another advantage to using Photobucket is if for some unimaginable reason I get banned from here, I can take my marbles (pics/diagrams) and go home. That's what I did when the HAMB banned me - deleted all my pics and diagrams from their site.
