How to retrieve a thread created by myself?


#1

Occasionally, I found threads/topics created by myself are no longer useful. Is there a way to remove them completely? Thanks!!


#2

Bump.

You can get your own posts going through the settings, eg. https://discourse.julialang.org/u/chobbes/activity/topics

I doubt you can delete a topic unless you’re a moderator. I wouldn’t sweat it - if your topic is useless, it’ll be quickly forgotten by Google.

What do you mean by “get posts going through the settings”? Can you elaborate?


#5

Top right corner of the page, your user icon -> gear icon -> Activity->Topics:

37

Do you mean that I can view all my past topics/threads by navigating to Activity? If this is what meant, thanks for reminding me this! But I guess it has nothing to do with deletion of a thread, right?


#7

Deleting threads is frowned upon even if they are apparently “useless”. If there is now a solution to the question, it is better to add that as another post in the thread.

Also discourse is immutable (posts can only be edited for a short while) to preserve the discussion and prevent that later changes remove the context of the discussion. Only mods/admins can delete/hide a thread.

I can only echo @dpsanders comment. It is best to add a solution or a explanation why a thread is useless so that other people can benefit from what you learned.

Thanks for the explanation. I get the point.
