Default How do I delete pictures from an old post?

I recently made this post, which included a few pictures I dont want up online in retrospect. Is it possible to have these pictures deleted?

Synergy horn: port location


Thanks in advance!

Hi Droco,

We don't normally edit posts in an established thread because doing so disturbs the timeline as seen by those following and reading. They think they see a change or that somethings gone missing and don't know what happened or why.

If something needs altering or correcting then its much better to quote your own post and do a follow up with new information. That way everyone is kept in the loop.

I realise that, but I posted those 2 pictures while wasnt actually allowed to do this. I am trying to rectify this situation. Hope you can help me.

This took me a moment to understand, and I'm asking because Mooly likewise might not understand - by "wasn't actually allowed" do you mean they are someone else's copyrighted property and you didn't have permission to post them?

I suppose the mod would delete them in this case, but also add a note that says "pics deleted due to copyright violation" so people will know why they're missing.

Yes something like that. Would really appreciate it.

Thank you

Is that going to change anything? I won't do it until the smart guys chime in. More smart guys I mean.

It's more a personal violation of trust than anything else. I get you guys dont want to disturb a thread, but those pictures didnt really add anything to that specific discussion ánd I was the OP. I posted those pictures (horn measurements) without realising I had actually asked the horndesigner if I was allowed to share them, and he said he'd rather I did not. I did share them, being forgetful, and now I would like to remove them to rectify my mistake. As simple as that. They were not mine to share.

That sounds reasonable. But,I'll ask you Calhoun, was there anything there that would be sensitive information wise that could be copied to create another like horn? If they don't add anything to the thread, then removing them will not affect anything.
