I often intended asking this before.
This is the only forum i really use but there one i use very rarely at home.
My question here when a person makes a quick quib here on a post it creates a new post and the older post is up the line somewhere.
The forum i mention just pulls the old post into last post on the topic and ditches the older post, i just thought i mention as seems more
efficient and takes less space.

Could you try explaining this again, as I have no idea what you mean.

Big delete.
I was going to comment on what I thought wollie was saying but as I was typing my thoughts I come to the conclusion I don't understand or have a real clue as to what he is saying. :think:

When someone comments on what another member has said this forum the original message stays where it was.
What i was suggesting is the original message and the comment should be pulled down to make it the last post
on the topic, then the message farther be automatically be deleted.
I deliberately did this as a comment to demonstrate my point.
The forum may not have the ability to do this.
I can explain again if needed.

Never seen this function on any forum I use.
If it was available I perceive that it could give problems.
In your example you suggest that El Cid original post should be deleted.
If I wanted to comment on that post then it would no longer be available.
I would have to comment on your post where you commented on the original post.
I believe it could get very confusing and messy.

Posts need to remain in chronological order, otherwise it would be impossible to make sense of a thread.
If you need to refer to the contents of a previous post when making a reply, just use the " (Quote) facility.

The original post lost me completely, I, like others, have never seen what is described. Using the quote facility works fine and I see no need to delete the post you are referring too .....I just confused myself again coffee I need more coffee :-)

Gerry,
I dont think you read my messages.
What i said was the original message with the quote replace the original message.
It not matter a bit to me but i thought forum was free to express views as we wish.

Regards.

Please continue to express your views as you wish, Wollie.
As far as I can understand what you are proposing, personally, I do not agree. So that is me expressing mine.
Forum software has been finely developed over the years to be user friendly and logical. What you are proposing is not.
Regards
WH
