I don't know if you can delete whole topics by yourself but there is an 'X' in the right hand corner of your post, next to 'Edit'.

Generally speaking, mods will not delete posts unless they are offensive or off topic. Even then they won't technically be deleted, they'll just be moved out of public view. We don't advocate deleting of exisitng topics.

Members can delete a post that has been made using the "X" that mmk pointed out, so long as no replies have been posted.

Please PM a mod if you would like to request for a post to be removed, and we'll take into account your reasoning before coming to a decision.

Even if it gets deleted from this site it can still exist in the cache of a search engine, in the backups we make of the site, on somebody's computer if they copied your message - so remember, if it doubt, don't post something you might change your mind about later - if you do you have only yourself to blame!

If you click "view your posts", it shows every topic in which you've posted (that's what it's for!) You can't clear out older posts, because that would be defeating the purpose of this function.
