Where did the "largest rare palm collection" go?


BS Man about Palms

Recommended Posts

I was trying to read the latest posts and it seems to have disappeared.   Surely it couldn't have turned controversial?

I do some experiments and learning in my garden with palms so you don't have to experience the pain! Look at my old threads to find various observations and tips!

I'm afraid so, Bill.

There's a setting in the admin control panel that we didn't have in the old software.  The setting allows (or not) for the originator of the topic to DELETE the entire topic!   Who wouldda thunk?!?  In the old version only an administrator could do such a thang ....

I changed it!

(This should be in the Admin Forum)

Doesnt RLR's post #3 above "solve" this mystery?

The key words are ORIGINATOR OF THE POST.  That means the person who STARTED THE TOPIC.  If there were 1000 posts after the first one, he could still wipe out the entire thread.  

So where is the mystery?

Ok ,again. Like i said, and how you put it-why did the originator delete the topic?...Is RLR saying he changed that NOW,so it cannot be done anymore?

I had heard privately from some that they had accidently deleted posts while "editing".  Since I believed RLR would admit to something if he did it, I figured it was an accident at your end.

RLR,

Perhaps the "delete" button should be left on reply messages.  This way the string cannot be deleted but individual replies can be erased.  Sometimes you post and have second thoughts.  Just a suggestion.

You're QUICK, Ray  ;-)).  I just changed that "parameter" a few hours ago.  I did so because of the slight chaos we just had because of that ol' delete button.

Here's a solution that might be just as good: one can STILL edit one's post and can change (via EDIT) the complete text of one's post, including wholesale change.  Otherwise one can PM me and convince me to actually delete the post.  The problem with this, of course, is that the follow-ups (if there BE any) might not make too much sense.

Let's live with the situation a few days and see .... eh?
