I made a topic on here a while ago. The help I received was great, and I am very appreciative of it.
I have been reprimanded and scolded for sharing the website domain name and the issues, and I'd like to resolve this problem by deleting the topic. When I tried to delete the topic I've created, I was told I didn't have sufficient permissions to delete said topic, and that I must flag it for moderator attention to delete it.
I searched all over for any flag button, but I couldn't find it. If it exists, it is not apparent enough in the UI to me, but maybe I'm just a bad user.
I tried looking up the keyboard shortcuts, which give "!" as a shortcut for flagging a topic. I've been able to get other shortcuts to work, but not this one. I'm able to bookmark, change settings, and others, but not flag.
Can someone help me by flagging my previous topic (and this one) for deletion by moderators?
You need to reach Trust Level 1 in order to flag posts. Assuming that the settings on this forum are the same as the defaults, then you need to read 30 posts to get there. Your profile says you've only read 14 posts so far, so once you read some more of the forum you should get promoted to that trust level and gain the ability to flag.
It is a bit odd, though, that you get a message saying to submit a flag when you don't yet have the ability to flag. That may be a Discourse bug (or misconfiguration)?
