I see the delete post function is enabled on some threads. I like it, can we have it everywhere please?

It behaves the same on every thread in every forum around here.

my (perhaps wrong) understanding is, that you can delete your post, until it was read by another member.

So if you post something, at a quiet hour, you can delete it for a while.
If you post during a time, when others are at the same thread, you cant.

This feature, together with the fact, that you can´t edit your posts, after a while, on here (at least I can´t) seems to be a "unique" feature of F1technical, compared with other forums on the net, where you can do both even after +1 year.

We've had problems with the 'delete post' function in the past, let's just leave it at that.

If you want something deleted just report it or clearly state it in your post with a quick edit, whichever is possible at the time.
