Hi, just a coupla points.
This site has a search engine that functions pretty well.
In order to prevent the same old rules queries appearing again and again: If you have a basic question, please run a search on the subject, more often than not you'll find the answer. There's a wealth of information on this site already, try and reference it where possible.
Secondly (and related), if you are asking something that you can't find an answer to, please make sure you put the subject matter clearly in the thread title, starting threads called 'Rules Question...' (or somesuch) does not help others find the information next time around! Example: 'Armour roll on failed GFI?' is preferable to 'GFI question'.
Also, there's a Rules FAQs which may help.
Thanks.
-Woody

Some of them drop off into cyberspace after not being posted on for a given period. Not sure how long TBH.

If I'm trying to find a thread that has a really common keyword and throws up a zillion results I try adding an author that I know posted on the thread. Narrows it a little. Still too wide a field and I'll try different (or more) keywords and 'exact matches'.

In the hope some of our newer members might get the hint!

Fixed, but it's no longer really valid.

I know nothing about the running of online boards and forums, so there might be a really obvious answer to this, but why do we have no option to delete our own forum posts?

You do, until someone replies/posts after you.
There's an 'X' button somewhere on the bottom of your post (can't say exactly, as I think it moves depending on what skin you're using - I'm on subsilver and it's on the bottom right).

Once someone else posts then you can no longer delete your post.
