    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Posters cannot delete posts. That can only be done by a moderator.

    Click on you avatar picture or user name and you will see a list of postings you have done. The only posts in the list are your two recent ones. 2008 was at least one software revision ago for the WebMD communities, so your post may have already been archived or deleted.

    As the other poster said, though, you can not delete your own posts. Only a moderator can.

    Hi there!

    You can hit the "Report this" button in your post then write a brief note that you want your own post deleted and the reason why. A member of the moderator team can look at the information to determine if a post should come down.

    Hope that helps!

    In general, bloggers get to post any desired self-correction post. That's good for most anything unless you said something you were embarrassed to share. Those are just over/done/too-late except a mod may help if asked nicely. Good luck if its like that - and if it is just consider that the politicians have all kinds of crazy things said and it's not such a big deal. Like they do - just move on and forget about it and so might everyone else.
