I was wondering if we could have a facility that enables me to remove old posts and raised threads that i have done or posted on from my "posts page".. not ones on the forum.. as i now have 11 pages of posts i have responded to and a long column of threads i raised that are now not answered or looked at from months ago..

like a box next to each one with a delete button.. like i can with my emails in my inbox.. tick the ones i dont want and delete them.. then i can just keep track of important ones to me with info in etc.. without going through pages and pages of them trying to findit.. maybe a save folder or something to keep things important or useful in..

i dunno if anyone else thinks this would be good to have..

hwo can i delete old posts....

sorry missed you out sotongeoff. yes i might add it to the feedback forum.. i dunno if anyone esle feels the same.

hwo can i delete old posts....

@zoomer44.. no not the e-mail subscribing.. but the list of threads you have posted on or raised on "my postings" page..  i have at mo 11 pages of them and it is not necessary for them all to be there...

but thanks anyway
