Poll Question
So I'm new to coin community and my question is:

Should topics be Deleted if it's not what it says it is?

Examples-DDO BUT IT'S REALLY JUST MD

Poll Choices
  Delete post
  OP change subject line
  Leave it as is for future members to search and find wrong example
  Have OP request moderator to delete

Very difficult to select a poll choice, with this thread.

ANY post here in the CCF has it's own circumstances surrounding it, and a reader cannot really get into the mind of the person who posted it.

If it seems that a particular post is wrong or misleading to you, you may wish to click on the
'Report this Post to the Staff' field in the bottom RH corner of the post box, for their consideration.

That includes this Post as well.

@sublime, the main goal of this forum is education. We are all here to learn, sometimes from our mistakes and sometimes from someone else's. I don't see anything untoward about either of your threads so far. We aren't here to judge, just help.

I apologize, I stated my question wrong, I was trying to see if I should delete my topic or ask for it to be deleted if I was wrong in the subject, or change my subject to reject the true contents of the coin I posted pics of.

I understand this forum is about education and discussion's and would be quite the jerk if I was going to go through the forum and subject matter to call people out. This was not my intention.

Ok yes we are all good here. My opinion is that if the thread unfolds in a way that folks will understand the thought process then there isn't a reason to go back and change things.

Any post is OK if it could lead to answering anything.

Sometimes, when I have realized that the information I have posted, amounts to not much more than information previously posted (by either myself or others),
I will edit my post by deleting all of it,
then simply posting a single full stop character.
I will then click in the 'Send a Note to Staff' field position (bottom RH corner), asking then to delete my duplicate post.

I guess this is the answer I was looking for. I do a lot of searching on this here World Wide Web and end up on to many links that are false or misleading and are not about the subject or field that I'm searching, just don't want individuals to click on something I thought I had which After being informed by the members here turns out to be a wrong "topic" and an error, uneducated guess, by me.

Thank You all for the input,
Sublime
