1. How do I delete a topic I started?  
2. I have edited this post before - yet the "edit" button is no longer visible and I can no longer do this.  What are the reasons why this button would no longer be available?  
3. There is a button called "resolved" - does this remove the post from visibility?  If yes, am I still able to view it under "my posts".
4.  How do I delete something from "my posts"?
5.  Where is the "help" section or forum to explain how to use this site?

HELP!!!

Thank you.

We usually only allow topics to be deleted in the singles forum. Report the first post in the thread and ask for it to be deleted and one of the  moderators will likely oblige.

Yes, please delete from the singles forum...the post is called "Sunshine Coast (QLD, Australia) - 38yr old woman (environmental scientist turned permaculture teacher)...This is me and I no longer want it displayed. Please Moderator, can you delete this? Thanks.

Thank you for your replies.  How do I notify the moderator - where do I message them from?  Do I do this via the"report" button?  I have tried this to find out - with an explanation that I am trying to delete it.  Also, it occured to me that maybe if I delete my profile (cancel my membership) to permies.com - my posts may dissappear.  Do you think this would work?

The other option is to edit the post (which I have done a number of times before) - but there is no longer this option (the "edit" button has disappeared)....how can I get it back?  Why has it disappeared - does it automatically disappear after a certain amount of time has passed?  

Thanks heaps for your help with this, I appreciate it greatly!

Yes - use the report button so any of the moderators will know that the post required attention and can deal with it easily and efficiently.

I think they need a live link to your thread  https://permies.com/t/61350/Sunshine-Coast-QLD-Australia-yr

You should be able to use the 'report' button to request the delete although staff sees this thread of course

Deleting your profile won't delete your posts...they're part of history now except, as others have said, in the case of the singles forum.

If you really just want to edit that thread I think you can ask to do just that The edit button always disappears after a certain length of time but you can still request an edit and a moderator can set that up for you.
 
Would you turn that thing down? I'm controlling a mind here! Look ... look at the tiny ad ...
