    I'm not seeing these edit options ( "duplicate, please delete" or similar...") in the Edit window. I hope not to tax the mod too much with my fumbling.

    I believe he is saying that he uses the edit button on his second post and gets rid of all the text and replaces it with the message "duplicate, please delete" in the body of the post. Then he hits the report button. When the moderator sees the double post that was reported, it is obvious to them that the second one can be deleted without bothering to merge the two posts.

    So the only buttons used are edit & report.

    Sorry... I needed a little help, help came. I reached out from where I was. I'm new to this forum. It works a little different from others I've been in. Edits, attaching pics, etc. The Help menu doesn't address these things. Thanks to those who did:)!

    No, it's about helping each other.....

    And the actual exchange was about how to delete double posts....you know, so bandwidth doesn't get wasted?

    If you're wondering how you got here, I just moved 24 posts in from the Ascent thread. Talk about shipping dates or picture posting or whatever you want here, but please keep it out of the Ascent thread.

    Ah I missed that WWZ 21st release date reference til now. These things are gonna sell so fast once it's released... we better be ready.

    I like the hilarity of the FB comments:

    "hurrrrrrrrrrry!"

    "this things had more teasers than a titty bar"

    "Our Lord Jesus is gonna be here before the ascent."

    :lol:

    No one knows the day or the hour. The ascent will come like a thief in the night. :myday:

    I've moved your posts here where they belong. I'm leaving them separate because the first one was deleted from the previous thread. I didn't do it but I can see who did, and the reason was the same for my reason for moving you: not advancing the topic.

    Posting off-topic is common and we often ignore it, but not in a thread where we just asked people not to clutter up the thread. You weren't doing anything worth a point, however, until your second post. A prudent member would have asked why the posts were being deleted in a PM. Instead you posted again in the thread, this time completely off-topic, to discuss a moderator decision. Would you like points with that?

    The old rice trick works wonders...had a friend with an old iPhone that he lost outside during a thunderstorm...he came back later and found the phone under 4 inches of water. Took it home, dried it off and packed it in rice. Two days later it fired up like nothing had happened...:)

    Update for release: CONFIRMED this week

    I just received an email from gotvape.com, quote:

    "...the item you ordered is a pre order item only and it will not be release until the end of this week. At that time the pre orders will start shipping out in the order that they were placed. You order will likely not ship to you until sometime next month."

    I ordered mine last night. So there you have it folks, end of the week.

    I was looking at their FB earlier and something reminded me about how people complained when that 1 girl who works for DV did that review video --- they mentioned t&a use (tits & ass to attract product).

    I thought that was silly because it obviously wasn't.

    But then I saw this FB post:

    [​IMG]

    OH ME? RIGHT ON MY ATTRACTIVE TITS!

    :rofl:

    I have no qualms with people using attractive people for ads, just thought this was pretty funny.

    Considering how they've not been able to keep to their original committed release dates
    Considering how they've not been able to keep to their subsequent committed release dates
    Considering how they weren't able to keep to their committed announcement date of the haiku contest winner
    Considering how they haven't contacted me as to where to send their second place gift certificate, or stated who the second place winner is being that I turned it down

    From a personal standpoint, I would take anything that they say with a grain of salt.

    Not being able to keep a commitment is one thing. Not communicating IMMEDIATELY to those affected with an update as to what the hell is going on, to me, is just bad business.

    I sent an email (a week ago) wondering if there is any new information on a release date.

    "Hello SleepyHead,

    We do not have a release date for you, sorry.

    The Da Vinci Team!"

    The lack of information is mind-boggling.

    So, this reminds me of home remodeling.

    "When will the bathroom be finished?"
    "Two weeks!"
    "How about the kitchen counters?"
    "Two weeks!"
    "Carpeting?"
    "Two weeks!"
