Hello all! Sorry I'm new to this and realizing I may be posting in the wrong area! Is there a way to simply delete your own comment rather than edit? 

Happy guiding!

Hi @AprilH,

 

Different boards or even for each article, the comment settings can be different.  And even depends if there are further replies to your post.

 

The best is to check on the "3 dots" menu on the top right corner of the post.  You can find if you can delete/edit your own comment/reply from there.

Hi @BellaW,

 

Thank you very much for looking into the reports.

 

Today, I successfully send my 1st feedback via the new channel:

 

"Thank you very much for adding this new feedback channel.  

 

I hope the LG homepage will further develop towards as the ultimate profile management site for all LG related services.

 

May I include one suggestion for this feedback channel?  Can you accept reports when we failed to keep connected via our various social channels?  Such as site is not loading, etc."

@SampsonF Thanks for the update, Sampson. 

 

The feedback feature is dedicated for Local Guides home related feedback/comments only for now.

For other feedback, you can post it here in Connect under "Feedback & Feature Request" board so we can track it properly.

 

Also, I am wondering on your example. Can you elaborate more on "keep failing to connect via our various social media channels"? Can I check if it pertains to Connect?

Hi @BellaW,

 

We send feedback about  Connect at Connect.

 

But when I cannot access Connect, then I cannot report that via Connect.

 

Thus during rare occasions, we might need another channel of reporting.

The "Connect With Us" section social profile icons do not have right tooltip text. All the 4 are wrong, added a screenshot here.
