    Really odd, I've been trying for 2 days to post the same message and it always fails with a blank screen. Now I post this test and it posts fine.. odd!?

    There is a bug in the forum software that causes a blank screen if the thread title is too long...but not always. Maybe this time you shortened the title a little...or maybe you just got lucky.

    You can't delete threads if they have been replied to, so it may be my fault. I also think you have to have a certain number of posts before you can delete threads, but I am not sure.

    The problem was in the title, but it wasn't too long. Any subject with the words "High output" or "diode" or "LED" in the subject would just give me a blank page for some reason. I got the question posted, but unfortunately with a vague title. Thanks for the tip!

    20 characters or more sometimes gives you a blank page. There's a thread in the site feedback section.

    There's no way to delete a thread, you'll have to ask a moderator to do it for you.
