Is it possible to put a one hour or so limit on deletes?

I'll take another look at the settings, but I don't think so. That would be the ideal solution though.

I can allow/deny the ability to delete posts based on the member group someone belongs to. Member groups can be assigned by me or based on the number of posts the user has made. Basing it on the post count is useless because I don't care as much if someone who has only made a few posts deletes them all, it's the people who have made hundreds of posts that do damage by deleting them.

Basing it on assigned member groups means I have to predict who is likely to delete their posts, and I've had people from both sides of the hoax debate delete large numbers of posts.

You maybe need to change ApolloHoax.net's links to the forums, so that they point here instead of the ProBoards forum.  Eh?

Yeah, I keep meaning to do that. I'm going to be changing the theme to match the forum but I'm not finding much time lately. But just changing the menu link in the current theme is a quick fix though, so I'll do that first.

Can post fine although YouTube embedding doesn't work (not that I ever did it before).

I finally managed to install the YouTube modification without breaking the forum. I'll probably regret doing that when the HBs start flooding the forum with pointless videos.

Apparently, one cannot delete a post?

Good news! I discovered that this forum software will let me restore deleted posts, so there's really no reason for me to not allow you to delete them now. If posts are deleted for dishonest or vindictive reasons then I can bring them back.

Can you lock an undeleted post so it can't be deleted again? Just curious.

Good question. I'm not sure if locking a post will prevent the author from deleting it, or if it only prevents them from modifying it. It's something I'll have to try.

I can deny people the ability to delete posts if they abuse it. Or if it's serious enough I can ban them. But occasionally deleting a duplicate post, or having second thoughts and deleting a post before people see it is acceptable.

LO, it would be great if the "new posts" link was functioning. I use that one a lot.

The " New Posts" shown at the bottom of the forum index is not a link, it is just a key telling you what the different icons mean. But there are a few different ways to list new posts in this forum.

If you click on the icon to the left of each forum it takes you to a list of new posts in that forum.

At the top of the forum are these two links:
Show unread posts since last visit
Show new replies to your posts

And last but not least there is this link at the bottom of the forum in the "ApolloHoax.net - Info Center":
View the most recent posts on the forum

Bookmark one of those links and you'll be taken there first whenever you visit the forum.

I have noticed a severe anomaly with the remove post feature while I was cleaning up my PWI (posting while intoxicated) mess .

I could delete all those posts, and in any order.  I remember at the old BABB that a post was available for deletion indefinitely as long as it was the last remaining post in the thread.  But posts that had seen others come after it couldn't be deleted.  That seemed sensible.  It prevented parts of a conversation from disappearing midway through.

But here, my posts from 18 hours were all deletable regardless of their position in the thread.

No, after what happened with the old forum, <snip> I just don't want 500 posts to suddenly disappear because someone had a bad day.

I'm not quite sure how to interpret that. But thanks for your feedback.

Oh, that's just me expressing shock and astonishment as I try to imagine what it was that might have prompted that comment!

Did someone really delete 500 old posts?

Depends on how you define "old," I guess.
