Oh the feature is to be able to delete posts of other people on your question.
hmn @ParthKohli this is good but what if the user misuses this right
@mathslover Anyway can you delete all the replies?
:) that was funny
there is much chance on misuse as mathlover said
Some people still need to have that option.
wat u mean?
We post tutorials and most of the time some random replies come before we write it out. Our tutorial needs to stay at the top, as that is the only point of the post.
You may flag it for a moderator's attention. I often clear up irrelevant posts myself.
Can you clear up mine?
I will. Report abuse, requesting "Clearing irrelevant comments".
Actually, they were not really irrelevant. But, they posted it before I posted my tutorial. So, that doesn't really deserve a report.
If they are not really irrelevant why do you want to delete it?
Well because my tutorial must be on top.
Can you delete the top three comments?
They were indeed somewhat irrelevant. I have fixed it now. For future reference there are couple of solution for this: (1) You can use the edit feature to edit the question. (2) Report abuse/Flag to invite a moderator's attention.
I don't see a flag option :|
and does editing questions delete the irrelevant comments? o.O
No, but it will bring your tutorial to the top. Obviously, you will loose the corresponding medals. The flag is same as report abuse.
Really? Editing question = losing medals?
Let me try. I'd message you a link to test it with.
When you edit the question to post your tutorial in it, the previous post of your tutorial as replies will be unnecessary. Deletion of which results the medals to evaporate into the system.
Let me send a test link to you so i could try it out.
u mean post the entire tutorial by esing edit qn?
Oh okay, I see.
Although, you can avoid it by keeping at-least one reply in that thread.
Another possible solution: Write the tutorial in some sort of text editor. Type up an intro to put into the question box, post the question, and immediately copy/paste the tutorial into the first reply.
@KingGeorge's suggestion is what we use to write up release notes (which are similar in that way). That means we can post the question and immediately post the reply with the actual notes.
