can I move a post?

I put a post in the wrong thread (COTM for ad hoc) with a picture. Can I move the post and picture to a different thread. Thank you.

    Click on "contrib" under your post and use the drop down to request a move.

      Sorry I don't see 'contrib' under the post? or even delete, then I could repost in the correct spot?

      Hi ElsieB,

      Once you're past the two hour window of editing/deleting, you won't be able to change your post. We can't move a post from one thread to another, unfortunately, so your best bet is as follows:

      1) Copy your post and re-post it on the correct discussion. You'll need to re-upload your picture as well.

      2) Once you have your new post in the right place, you can flag your old post, and the moderators can delete it for you.

      Sorry there isn't an easier way to do this...

      Thanks!
      Dave MP
