I'M NOT ALLOWED, IT SEEMS, TO REMOVE MY OWN (THIS) POST !! ??  (ONLY EDIT IT...)

Oops xxx.
We have removed the attachments in post as my partner & I both feel very embarrassed  :-[
It was the LAST thing we intended, being to 'offend'... totally the OPPOSITE.

Susie & I are but "Mere-Mortals" in comparison, but we are real people, with real
feelings, and have only ever tried to praise/help people, in any aspect of our lives
and others lives, and where the ONLY 'return' is to make someone else happy....

That does NOT make us 'important'... far from it... but we have learn't that there
is a 'Chasm' of separation from 'Mere Mortals' to the 'Pseudo' 'Demi-Gods'.

We just don't know how to 'bow' any lower, than our face in the dirt ! so we apologize.
We do not WANT to compete!!!!, and we know we fail, but wish all others success  Xoxox

How does 'one' remove/delete a 'Post' ???????
Does 'Dave' control every aspect of this blog/forum so that NO other 'moderators'
can intervene/help.....  I DON'T expect an actual reply from DAVE... (demi-god),
but can SOMEONE who's granted slightly less Demi-God 'Power', either explain or
DELETE for me....   I STILL have 'interests' in OTHER aspects/fields/topics of the
 'Forum', where other Global people are Interested/Polite/Contributing/Fun etc.
I DON'T want YOU to be my HERO any more 'dave', in THIS particular TOPIC !!!!!!
You have forgotten your 'roots' dave. You HAD it, but lost it.....

<The OP wants to delete this thread>

Common members can only remove their own replies to a topic - not the original post.

The logic would seem to me to be that the original post is like an anchor for the thread - and removing the anchor would mean ALL replies in the thread would be lost.  No ordinary member should have any such power over other members' posts.

HOWEVER, you are taking the wrong approach here.

Don't try and have the thread deleted.  Don't go out of your way to try and "sort it out" and certainly don't make a fuss over it.  By doing so, you are drawing more and more attention to yourself.  Look up "Streisand effect".


The simple answer is ... leave the thread alone and it will fade into oblivion really quickly.  Nobody here really worries about a dead thread like this.  Nobody goes searching for them.

Delete your replies on the thread if you must.  You can even edit the original post - changing the body of the text and even the title to just a full-stop (the title of the first post is used as the title for the thread).

I'd completely forgotten about this thread ... until you resurrected it.  I have only replied to let you know the best course is to forget about it.  I have even put a title to my post that makes no reference to the original subject, just to lessen the trauma you seem to be suffering (at your own hand).


Just walk away.

 :) :)  Thank you 'Brumby' for your polite reply.... (Seriously!).
I HAD actually forgotten about it, and to be honest I guess I was on my 'Soap-Box' making a point  ;)
Still, I still think the 'original' instigator of a 'Post' should be able to remove it, without JUST editing/blanking.

My Partner & I are but 'little-people' in the scheme of things... (not just 'here' but in life in general ! )
I, (we), have (had..) always followed 'Dave' for a MYRIAD of technical & human-interest reasons, but it is
my opinion that he is maybe growing too big for his head!, and can't think down to 'Lesser' human levels now.
I say that... because many OTHER people from MANY similar tech Chanels ALWAYS find time to answer people
on Youtube... DAVE says to go to his FORUMS for discussion/answers, but he NEVER replies to lowly 'People'.
And yes we know how many emails, questions, comments he must receive..... but virtually NO answers ??

We WERE impressed, not just with his tech info, but that at first he emphasized his love as a FAMILY man, and
regularly talking about, and involving, his wife & child (children now),  and that was good.....
I (we) love the OTHER friendly interactions with regard to the MULTITUDE of other Topics/Posts on this.. "Forum"..
so I don't want to just 'walk away' completely.......  (99.9% friendly, informative, helpful, fun, and sharing....)

YEP...  8)   I could have said nothing more... and waited for it to just 'die' ?.... and so I guess as I said that I was
just making a 'point' earlier. (Original post long gone for ref...  xoxox)

Right now we are outside, (Western Australia, warm night !!), sipping a few 'bubblies', listening to some 'Oldie'
songs/tunes, (both in our 60's, and an old 'Folkie' at heart), and playing the same on my Guitar for her....
Have a nice day/night to you and all !!   :-+

what on earth is going on? Any moderator can delete a topic, the OP cannot and deleting their opening post would in effect delete the whole topic, even I or Dave can't just delete a first post, I have to specifically and knowingly delete the whole topic. Anything else upsetting you?

I feel a bit offended that you think that Dave has lost interest in the community here and feel he is not giving you the attention you want.

1) As you stated, Dave has a life, and a family, which IMO if he has to drop everything here to spend time with his family I am all for it.
2) Dave has been very busy and active producing not only a TON of content, but also engineering products for this community, such as the EEVBlog Multimeter 121GW
3) The multimeter kickstarter went nuts netting well over 1/2 a million dollars which was completely unexpected, Dave now has to handle the logistics of having an enormous amount of multi-meters manufactured, and shipped around the globe, a logistics nightmare and huge time sink.
4) Dave has taken steps to try to lessen his work load by bringing on young Dave to take over some of the work and assist in filming.
5) This community has grown to a size where it is hard for anyone to keep on top of every single post made, the forums are so active I have had to spend a large amount of my personal time to keep the servers online and website responding in a timely manner.

Removing the first post removes the entire thread, it used to be allowed but when someone deleted a thread that was 20+ pages long and contained a ton of very useful information it was deemed necessary to prevent this from occurring again.

Quote
but can SOMEONE who's granted slightly less Demi-God 'Power',

I actually have complete control over the server and it's contents, in reality more power than Dave when it comes to the technical operation of the server, but this doesn't make any of us "Demi-God's". Running the server is a job, it takes time, sometimes a lot of time. Between dealing with people posting spam to the forums and attacks on the server, it is not what you would exactly call fun.  Simon does an excellent job of keeping on top of moderation reports, etc... I maintain the technical side of things, while Dave maintains the website content, produces videos and promotes this community.

How much does this all cost you? Nothing.

You can have an opinion.  Doesn't mean you are right, though.

Quote
I say that... because many OTHER people from MANY similar tech Chanels ALWAYS find time to answer people

He does, actually... and you aren't going to see most of them.  If you saying that because he didn't personally respond to you, then you need to take the tickets off yourself.

Quote
And yes we know how many emails, questions, comments he must receive.....
I don't think you do.

You certainly don't seem to appreciate that there is more to his life than just doing Youtube.  He is a business man, with a lot of things occupying his time.  Just have a read of GNIF's post.

Quote
We WERE impressed, not just with his tech info, but that at first he emphasized his love as a FAMILY man, and

Involving his family was a charming exercise - but I have no hangups about their non-involvement since those early appearances.  The internet is not the place to expose one's family too much - and I, for one, am happy they remain out of the limelight.

Quote

I meant ... walk away from this thread.

The "point" has been addressed by GNIF.  Deleting the first post completely means deleting the whole thread - including any valuable content that others may have contributed.

That's not the sort of power any regular member should have.


Respectfully, as an ordinary, run-of-the-mill member, I would ask you adopt a little more humility in your approach - and to understand that, just because you don't see how much time Dave spends on various pursuits doesn't mean he has time to meet your expectations.

... and just walk away from this thread.

It's been a while, but I think it was originally about a design offered (for shirt pockets??).

IIRC, some noses got out of joint because there was no response to the offer.  The OP then felt very self-conscious about "putting themselves out there" and wanted to erase all evidence.  All posts were deleted - except for the original post - and they made an issue out of the fact they couldn't delete that first post.

They have subsequently posted about their perception that - to put it bluntly - you don't give a crap.

Simon, gnif and myself have taken umbrage at their assertion (as, I am sure, have many others who have not posted).

Gnif captured the sentiment well, I thought:
I feel a bit offended that you think that Dave has lost interest in the community here and feel he is not giving you the attention you want.

Hi GlennSprigg,

I read these forums quite a bit, I post some but not too often. There are quite a few posts a day here. I'm just a peon on this forum but have moderated on large forums (like 600k+ active users in the good days). It's very easy for posts to get missed and while Dave may have his flaws like we all do, one thing I will give him credit for is how much he interacts with the community he has built up here.

Looking at the post date of December 15th and the second post of January 08th, it's a bit busy a time a year for quite a few people.  :-//

I read a lot on these forums but I still can't manage to catch every post.

Sometimes on busier forums you have to nudge someone to get them to take a look at it, as they may miss it. (sending a private message helps)

The draw back of being a popular figure is you don't have as good of interaction but for what it's worth, I think Dave does pretty good for what he can do. And I still think he's a bit humble which is a good thing.

I'm sure he doesn't know who the heck I am from a hole in the ground, but he has responded to some of my posts in the past. That is my experience.
Gone for good

We that attitude and ventings, you've just self proclaimed and declared that you are a VIP that deserved to be treated like a VIP.

Grow up and grow thicker skin, if something that is worth Dave's attention, it will eventually reach him no matter how, either directly or thru words of mouths, that is the way how things work here.

Just read this -> Dave doesn't have a life ..., especially the "DATE" of the 1st post was made, and also the few last posts of the thread that has the charts, get an idea your self how ignorant you are.  :--

Why are you pushing this thread to the recent unread threads list if you don't want the thread to be viewed? Invoking the Streisand Effect is a bad strategy.

I thought this thread had died and gone to ... wherever.

Seems the OP just can't resist breathing life back into it.


But ... to answer the question about "what if ...."
The fundamental approach here is not one of censorship - but of encouraging reasonable and relevant discussion.  When things go way off track, threads get locked but posts usually remain.

If you DO engage in anything that will result in posts being removed, you are skating on ice that may give way - and you will get banned.

Here, however, the Streisand Effect is being well and truly evoked by our inimitable OP.

As has been mentioned SEVERAL times ... the best way for this thread to disappear is to let it do so in its own good time.  Walk away and it will drift down the corridors of time......



(Will check back in a few weeks to marvel at this funny SAGA... xx)


By all means check back - but please don't post or you'll only bring this back up to the top again.


BTW - If you're trying to annoy everybody to get a communal vote to have this thread deleted - don't hold you breath.  I'm sure I'm not alone when I say your seeming inability to understand what you are doing and what we are saying is just about up there with slapstick comedy.

I read a lot on these forums but I still can't manage to catch every post.

This forum has over 800 new posts a day, every day, I cannot possibly read them all, nor do I even want to as many of them about things I have no real interest in.
I still have no clue what this whole thing was about  :-//
