Hi Again!

You can delete a message or thread you created by selecting "Options" in the top right of the message, and selecting "Delete".

 

We hope this helps!

Hi, TTrue!


Thanks for your contributions to the forum. While the forum's primary purpose is for Canon users to exchange ideas, it serves a secondary purpose of acting as a repository of information that Canon users can browse if they experience a problem or have a question. If someone else has already posted on that topic, new users could benefit from the information that was shared.


Because of this, we rarely delete a thread, especially if there are helpful replies beneath it. In the meantime, you can delete your own replies by clicking the "Options" dropdown menu on the right and selecting "Delete."


Glad we could help!

Re: Delete

As we mentioned, the delete option is for replies.  The lead post which starts a thread cannot be deleted by the user.

 

If you need any additional help, let us know!

Just a suggestion, maybe have the option for the original poster to turn off commenting once an answer is found. That would allow the topic to remain, but not bombard the topic with useless subthreads.

I recieved multiple emails off topic from that thread.
