Cannot delete a problem

Cannot delete a problem

Postby bass on Wed Apr 15, 2009 11:29 am

I have twice tried to delete problem 12578 by removing the check from "problem is active on site" box and clicking "change". Edit history shows two edits by me, but without comments (which I did give), and the problem does not get deleted.

Is deactivated the same as deleted? I remove the active and sandbox check-marks, but it still shows on my deactivated list. I can't find another way to delete the problem. I wish i could make them disappear forever.

Hi. As you say, you can't delete a problem, and you can only deactivate it when you want to trash it. That is how this site is designed.

If you really need to delete a problem (for example when it's found to be illegal and should not be public on the net -- that should be a very rare case though), then I think you can tell Adum so that he can check and delete it (I can also do that when he is busy).

Ok, thanks for the answer, i made a problem too, but i'm not satisfied with it afterall so i wanted to delete it.
Since it's not possible, i'll keep it and will wash stones and tree and reuse it for my next problem, i guess.
