You can edit a post within thirty minutes of submission. Only moderators and admins can delete posts.

Probably also worth pointing out the Terms of Service which state:

Posts contributed to the community immediately become the property of DaniWeb upon submission. Members may edit their posts for a limited time period immediately after, for the purpose of correcting spelling and grammar mistakes and accidental ommissions. After this initial period expires, posts may only be edited or deleted by DaniWeb team members, and only in cases where they do not comply with our forum rules for the purpose of making said content comply with all rules. As a discussion community, posts contributed by many members work together to form coherent discussions. Altering or deleting individual posts may have consequences that unfairly extend to other members of the community. All members are held responsible for their actions. As always, think before you permanently post something on the public Internet.

Of course, you're always welcome to request that a post be deleted. But be aware that unless it's a flagrant violation of the rules, we're likely to reject the request. On the other hand, if it's a simple matter of removing something like personal information from a post, we're generally sympathetic and will edit the post accordingly.
