Just a vent...
Oh when will this message board ever give us the ability to delete our posts!? I just made a big goof with the reply to the wrong thread #-o

Fodors, can you grant this wish?? [-o<

LOL ggr I hear you!

cherie1 Mar 30th, 2006 01:11 PM

I third the motion.

How about the ability to delete the posts of others - now that would be a thrill! (I am sure quite a few of mine would be deleted, but that would be half the fun)

I'd like real folders for each state like Frommers has. :-)

FainaAgain Mar 30th, 2006 07:14 PM

You can click on a state!

Oh, no, please don't make this website like so many others! I love to see all posts. Especially the silly ones :)

Agreed Faina. If it ain't broken, don't fix it. That said, we could use a "foot in mouth" smiley to acknowledge our mistakes.

ggrtist Mar 30th, 2006 09:05 PM

yes..that would be pretty cute, with the homer simpson sound clip... "Doh" (speaking of's an interesting article-

sorry, completely off track, would this qualify as a post which should be deleted ;)

Like they say in the construction industry:
<b>Measure twice, cut once.</b>
Don't be so heavy handed with the &quot;Post my reply&quot; button!

jamaltay Mar 30th, 2006 09:57 PM

No, ggrtist. It needn't be deleted. It could be covered by the &quot;boot in butt&quot; smiley.

There's a guy on the Europe board that was asking a question about &quot;Pone Cards&quot;. I bet he wanted to change that!

I held back and didn't start talking about corn pone. :-D

How about eliminating the ridiculous and childish smileys and emoticons???

OldSouthernBelle Mar 31st, 2006 07:02 AM

Rusty: There are few enough places for adults to have childlike fun. Please don't take the fun out of it!

I do agree the poster should have control over his/her own posts as to deleting.

And rb_travelerx, that is a good principle, but don't get me started on the mistakes that are done in the construction industry....nobody's perfect.

OSB--Amen to that, sista!

khoffmann Mar 31st, 2006 09:26 AM

yes, deleting your own &quot;oops&quot; would be good. But since there is no &quot;tone&quot; or way to know how people are saying something, I think the emoticons (as childish as they are) are kind of importatnt. Especially for us sarcastic types! ;-)

Please, Fodors--heed this request.
