On an occasion some posts I have posted have been murged, and also to some others. Is there any way to delete our own post to prevent mods and admins murging posts.

I'm not sure what you're asking, could you please type more clearly?  Staff members merge and move posts as-needed, to keep the site orderly and well-organized.  For example, we'll merge duplicate threads to keep just one thread on a subject, and move them if the thread is posted in the wrong board.  There isn't really a way to prevent this, per se, except to post correctly in the first place (bump existing threads instead of starting new ones, making sure your thread is in the correct board, etc).

Due to gross abuse in the past, members cannot delete posts or threads, but anyone can request that a post be deleted, using the Report to Moderator link.  And if a staff member doesn't feel a post/thread should be deleted (for example, if there's a good discussion going on), we'll work something out with you.

Ok, what I was asking if members were able to delete posts for the reason like duplicates. But you've covered it

Along the lines of this...
I know you've addressed it before, but what is the time limit on editing posts?

I wish I could remember the several-dozen other threads where this has been asked, because every time someone asks, I have to dig through the admin console to find it, and convert it from minutes to days.

It's five days.

Oh, I did not realize the work that went into it.
Are there any current stickied posts, where this info could be added in, so the next time it is asked anyone can point to it?
