Keith. Is there a way to delete messages when they begin to accumulate?

Hi Bob,

I can use an admin function to delete messages, but had intended that I would only use this in the event of a spam or inappropriate post and would retain all other correspondence for people to refer back to.

The messages are stored centrally on the AOA server, not on your PC, and then displayed via your internet browser in the order of most recent activity first, so I'm not sure why you might want any deleted?  If you could clarify, I'd be happy to think further about it.


PS Since this relates to the operation of the forum rather than to a sailing subject, I'm going to move this to the "Forum Discussion" board

Thanks Keith. That answers my question. I'm happy to leave the messages as is.
