    The club chair is a great delete button. (Thanks Patrice) I'm also in the edit, delete contents, update chapter.

    i'm going to steal that one for work.

    my users will hear of PICNICs, and of being a few ants short of a PICNIC.

    and i won't tell them what it means. :twisted:

    When this has happened to me, I simply go in, delete all of the words through the "EDIT" button and it is gone. You may still end up with an Avatar, but the message part will be empty.

    P.S. Sorry, didn't read all the posts before I sent the same suggestion others had.

    Yes, that very thing has happened to me to. Then I think everyone is saying, That women must have double-clicked on the send... But, really I didn't. I am sure we are not the only ones this has happened to.

    I've double posted a lot. Could never find a way to delete. Will have to try the "edit" suggestion. What happens to me is that, usually the post goes up right away. Sometimes I can't remember whether I hit "send" because I don't see it right away, so I think I didn't hit "send" and hit it again. Then I see both of them there.

    Good thinking! I commend your creativity!

    Have you tried going to edit, backing over the whole note, then hitting your backspace button? I've found that works ok for me.

    I have seen messages (as of late) come up "Locked" -

    What is that used for?

    Do it all the time myself. I just get in too big a hurry for it to show up so I hit it again.

    Happens sometimes when you leave your finger 4 too long on the send button, no harm done, so don't worry about it. We've all done it at least once.❤

    an accidental double-post is not a rules violation. it causes no harm at all to the board or to the topic.

    please don't worry if it happens to you. we'd rather you left it alone than rush in to delete the words in the extra post.

    when they're left alone, we all know what happened. when we encounter self-edited posts that leave nothing but blank space, it looks a lot more strange than two of the same.

    we fix the ones we find. we don't worry about the ones we miss. life's too short. :lol:

    I think I have done it twice this week. I believe it is because I hit the back arrow button got distracted, saw the message and thought I hadn't hit send. I hit send and there it is, same message posted twice.

    I have double posted also. It being in era. My computer is slow sometimes and I'm not always sure if I clicked it or not.

    I responded to a PDA (personal diary announcement) and checked back 2 weeks later. Well my response was there but not the question. I thought that was odd. So it had to have been from the moderators since we can't delete anything.

    I would like to know the answer to that question too. I am always making some kind of mistake.

    members cannot delete posts. we learned several years ago that it can lead to abuse, confusion and headaches for everybody.

    there is absolutely no need to feel like an idiot if you accidentally double-post. it happens for a lot of reasons, most of which don't have anything to do with the user's level of intelligence.

    usually, it's because the browser hangs up and we think the post didn't go through. we do the naturally human thing and click the "send" button again. i've seen triple posts. i've received up to four copies of the same pm.

    it's no big deal.
