Questions about the forum

Thank you for the quick response! There is no pencil, though… see screenshot. I do see the pencil in topics I have created more recently. Does the option to edit the title expire?

You don’t have to close it by yourself.

It will be closed after 2 months - look what is written beneath the topic :wink:

This topic will close 2 months after the last reply.

But you can edit the headline with [Closed], if you want.

Edit: @CStar9 I marked the headline for you as closed.
As a basic user you can edit only for a short time after posting.

If you are a new Forum user (“Basic”) you cannot edit your posts after a while. That changes after 14 days of visiting the forum, then you can achieve the “member” level.
So if you need help editing the title of the topic, you can ask here for people to help you. Everyone who’s got memberstatus “regular” can help you.


Thank you all so much!!


I would like to delete messages from my inbox. How do I do that?

Hello! There is no “trash can” to delete message threads, but you have two options: you can archive the message or you can remove yourself from a conversation (use the Add or Remove... button underneath the first message in the conversation). If you remove yourself from the conversation, it disappears from your in-box.

Is there any way to remove my own username from the messages in the inbox? I’m trying to search for a message from months back, and it’s confusing that all of the messages has my name on it in addition to the other person I have corresponded with.

Also, when we have removed ourself from a conversation, will this message then not show up in the search?

I’m afraid not. Adding the usernames of everyone that is participating in the conversation (ie, has replied) was a mod we did on the forum, since originally there weren’t usernames at all — only avatars, which we felt was a little too minimalist.

But you can filter just the messages from a single person, by typing their username on the search bar in your inbox, and keeping the in:personal suffix. Like this:

That should show us just the messages between you and that person.

When you remove yourself from a conversation, that message will be gone for good. It will not show up anywhere in your inbox.

I just created a topic for the German part of the forum and just after submitting it I realized I did not categorize is for that part of the forum but the general topics part. This still has to be apprived by moderaotores. However, I was wonderen if I as the creater, can’t see this pending topic to make corretions to it?

I have change the category and it is now a topic in the #communities:german-deutsch

To be honest, I’m not sure that while it’s still in pending you’ll be able to access it. Probably not.

I participated in a fresh topic started by @wonderlikeworld . The topic is suddenly gone. Why was it removed completely? Usualy topics are closed so others can read it.

The topic was about ranking by distance and km made in Travel Mode.

That’s true. Usually topics aren’t deleted unless there’s a reason to do so.

Best way for you would be this:
Please ask the topic opener (via PM) why it was deleted, if you’d like to know.


I like to have my country flag after my name.
I looked into settings and put the flag in it. But it’s saying:

use the correct notation

you can find help here: :upside_down_face:


Thank you. I found it :blush:

@reisegern I’m fine with it. Did not know this way of deleting complete topic was possible on the new forum.
Good to now we can ask to delete topics we started for personal reason.
