    I've looked and looked and can find no action to delete obsolete conversations. Need to clean out old stuff that's years old.

    Thanks,

    Look for the "Leave Conversation" button. Click that and it moves the message to the "trash". From there you can delete it also.

    Was wondering about this. Tried it this morning and discovered that you can click on the "Selected" box below that "Start Conversation" box on right side, and it will select all conversations on one page and pop up a dialog box at bottom that allows you to leave a page of convos at a time.

    Bad thing is they THEN go to the trash can, and you have to delete them there through the same number of clicks.

    Seems like a overly complicated process, and with over 20 pages myself, I would imagine it adds to storage requirements. A simpler process that deletes in one pass would likely encourage more to clean the old off the forum.

    If you click on "show all conversations" it will list out yours from newest to old, there are small boxes to click/check on the right hand side, click all that you would like to delete. At the bottom of the window there's an option to delete/modify/etc. It should ask are you sure about deleting X number of conversations.
    Hope that helps...
