Images won't delete

Hi!

I've tried without success to delete a couple of images from my posts, and wonder if there's a bug or if I'm doing something wrong.

The images are:
1. The third one in "The missing dollar" thread in Puzzles and Games.
2. The second one in post #8 of "Edna's age" thread, also in Puzzles and Games.

Ticking the Delete box on the Edit page didn't work...and waiting several hours before trying again made no difference either. Nor did logging off/on.

Anyone got any ideas on this?

Thanks.

I will look into it.

Thanks, MathsIsFun.

Btw, I'm fairly sure that I was able to delete one or two in the past, but I don't recall what it was that I did differently.

I know that on one occasion I just deleted the whole post and started again.

Re: Images won't delete

Dear Mathsisfun, I've noticed that if I make a post, then for about 5 minutes after I post it (not exactly sure how long) I can't delete the post. I can click the button 'Delete', but it doesn't do anything. I have to wait a long time to come back and delete it.
