My apologies, as I know this might have been discussed at length previously, but I am still trying to understand. On a reply by @codinghorror, a while back, he wrote:
Will that mean that, if I want to completely delete a post, I should just hide them? Will the
delete removed posts after setting apply to the forum administrator, and thus, the topics/posts deleted/hidden by the administrator’s account be removed after the
n hours set? Are
topics considered the same, for this setting?
How can one delete uploads, so that the
purge deleted uploads grace period days settings become applicable (Grace period (in days) before a deleted upload is erased)?
