    I have a duplicate thread I would like to delete, but there is no delete option under the "edit" tab.
    How do I do it?

    Thanks,
    R.

    I don't think GIM ever allowed people to delete a thread. Long ago when people were ALWAYS nice you could. Problem is when a topic is "high-energy" and the trolls start, the originator would delete the thread, causing some good reply's to be trashed. So no more deleting.

    Hope that answers your question.

    Blaze is correct.
    Hey R,
    Can you tell me what they are. We can merge them.

    Hystack is correct.

    Let us know and we'll do what we can.

    Merging is usually the easiest to keep the posts, but if it's really early we can delete one if there's nothing posted.
