    Is it possible to delete a posting from myself without leaving a "trace" (darn, I can't help my poor English; how do you say this right in English?).

    Look at this thread:
    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=22205

    When I see a new support part or installed component for NOD32, I would like to be able to :
    - delete my previous posting about it in that thread;
    - post a new one there;
    - make the thread go up again on top of the threads in the NOD32-forum.

    Any idea?
    Thanks, Jan.

    PS:
    Of course it is the decision of the NOD32-forum mods whether to make that thread sticky.
    That isn't my decision.
    If it isn't sticky, the question is:
    - is it possible to do it as described above?
    - is it anyhow "valuable" info to post?

    Hi Jan,

    Post deletions here are not immediate. When a post is deleted is more like "marked for deletion". While you may be able to see that "placeholder" yourself, most others can't (except for those who's member IDs allow that - like forum staff.)

    The deleted post markers will go away in time as a part of normal maintenance.
