    I accidentally started a thread in the site topic. I tried to delete it but there is no option to delete it like in the other topics on the Forum.

    What gives?

    I believe you only have 30 minutes to edit or delete with the new software. It's not one of my assigned sections so I can't help with moving it. One of the other mods will see this and move it for you, or you can "start a conversation" with one of the admins and I'm sure they will take care of it.

    I have to be honest I don't like the new site whatsoever. It's too cluttered. I know complaining won't do anything but damn. It doesn't display right at all on my IPad. My phone it does ok on. I don't ever use my laptop anymore because it's getting pretty old but I just might have too to be able to be on this site. The Chevy C10 forum I joined is the same way.

    I asked a mod last night to move it which they did but now there are double posts in the BS section as I had reposted it late last night.

    There has to be a fix for that nonsense. While I'm not completely against killing the edit button after x amount of time, everyone should be able to delete their own threads.

    I am sure its a setting, it was in the old software. MM says he is still tweaking things.
