Wow, well that's dumb. I should absolutely be able to delete a "solution" and you might want to consider making it possible to "comment" as opposed to every form of communication being either problem or solution.

    Wow, so now I need to be able to delete comments as well. I commented above, but then it asked me to login, and then once I logged in it put the comment in the wrong place.

  • Brandon M. Sergent Mar 15, 2013

    But hey, at least they added comments as I suggested above :)

    I don't care what they wrote in the CYA disclaimer. It's(non-curse word I'm not allowed to say!?) and it's why I don't use this service. At least they added comments like I suggested. (They didn't exist in 2013.)

Why has my question just disappeared !? I posted a new qu under packard bell laptops and it initially showed up. Now when I click on it in the list of topics I get a msg saying it does not exist.

Moderators like Bill and I have the ability to delete posts, but we only do it if the posts are duplicated, or irrelevant, or *******. Fixya gets 7 million posts a year, so things do go wrong. Those 11 views aren't fictitious, a LOT of people read questions, especially those who are here specifically to answer questions, because we like to help. It is almost an unpaid, part time job. I do see your question posted. have dead Easynote SJ51 that would like to fix Basically nothing happens...

Same place as the picture Nathan. You can delete any of your own posts by going back to them and clicking Delete at the bottom. I deleted a few for you this morning that was against Fixya Terms of Service. :>)

My Account - My Settings and then at the bottom.

Email Settings × Send me emails that are directly related to my Fixya profile.
Send me emails about questions i can answer.
  • Once per week
  • Every other week
  • Once a month
Do not send me any more emails from Fixya.(By selecting this option I understand I will not receive any future emails from Fixya besides lost password requests and emails from support replying to emails I sent.)

My fixya account is wrong and I can't find how to delete stuff

Hi Brenda, what is it you would like to delete?

It is not possible to remove posts, but you can add clarifications and comments to your questions and solutions by going to the thread page (clicking a question will take you there).

Clicking Edit next to your name (top right of the screen) will allow you to edit your profile. Here you can:

  • Edit/delete Profile Information
  • Change your Email Settings
  • Unfollow Problems and Solutions
  • See your Problems, Solutions and Tips

I hope this helps!

Your problem is unclear. If you are attempting to delete numerous files, simply click on the top file in the list that you want to delete, hold the shift button down, and click again on the bottom file to mark for deletion. Then, right click within the actual highlighted area. The system will return with a confirmation prompt, answer yes / OK to delete, and you're done!

If you need more help, please post back. Otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!
