deleting a post

I accidentally duplicated a post and then tried to edit/delete it.

I can edit it but it won't delete.

Even erasing all the text doesn't work because it says you can't have a post with less than 10 characters....... what am I missing here

I've closed the duplicate thread but left it as there were followups. To delete a thread, you need admin help. As the OP, you can edit or close a thread but you aren't allowed to delete it as you could be deleting replies from others.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Why not merge the two threads and delete one of the duplicates? I use this method as it combines all replies into a single thread.

Laziness. Both are available to read, the closed thread has a link to the open one and there wasn't much going on in the closed one.
