How do I delete a post from the skype community forum

Hi

 

Can you please tell me how to delete my own postage from the skype community forum? I have not found an option to delete a postage only to report. If 'reporting' is the common way to remove a postage from the forum then can you tell me how long it takes until someone responds?

Thanks.

Hello,
Only a Moderator can remove a post. I have to have a good reason as to why you require it to be removed. Normanally we only delete posts which violate our Community Guidelines.

Hi
I understand that you need a valid reason to remove a post. I hope this matter is a valid reason. I accidently placed this letter on a forum page. It was ment to go to customer service.
It is very delicate aspect to disclose bank details. I kindly ask you to remove these letters and help avoiding personal damage.

Thank you.

Re: How do I delete a post from the skype community forum

I also need a post deleted. I posted twice (my only 2 posts ever) back in December looking for a language exchange, and since I have received so many messages and Skype requests that I'm seriously considering deleting my Skype account because of all the spam. The post was a good idea at first as I did find some people to exchange with, but I just can't have my Skype info up online forever- it's been 6 months and I'm still receiving so many annoying messages. There needs to be a way to delete these posts- it isn't fair to me (or to them, who ought to find language exchanges that will actually accept them and talk to them). 

 

Can someone please help me?

 

Thanks.

If you wish to have a post edited or removed because you have posted personal information, please be advised that the Skype Community Guidelines state:

"6. No Post Deletion

Please be conscious of what you post in the community and consider that it will be stored permanently for public display. We only remove posts that violate our Community Guidelines. We don't remove or edit posts simply because you 'change your mind', so please consider carefully whether or not you are happy with your post being displayed publicly indefinitely."

As mentioned in the guideline, an exception to the "No Post Deletion" rule can be made if you have, either intentionally or accidentally, violated a Community Guideline in your post.

The Community Guidelines also state:

"7. Personal Information

Please keep in mind that this community is accessible by the public and providing personal information is prohibited. Never post or share with other community members your [or anyone else's]: full name, username, age, date of birth, password, email/physical address, phone number, order number, credit card number and any other private information [this includes your Skype ID]."

So, if your post contains personal information, and you wish to have it removed, then you may notify the moderation team by clicking on the "Options" menu at the top right of your post and selecting "Report Inappropriate Content". When reporting your post, please include a message explaining that you have violated the Community Guidelines by posting your personal information, and that you would like to have that information removed.


We hope that you will all continue to make safe and appropriate contributions to the Skype Community!
