Can't delete old attachments
I used to be able to go to Settings > Attachments and clear out old attachments by deleting them. In particular, I used this as a way of removing old versions of my Privacy Settings Guide so that only the current one was available.
Now when I go into this, the only attachment with a check box next to it so that I can delete it is the most recent one... which means old versions will still hang round.
Is it intentional to stop us being able to clear out our cr@p?

I'm guessing the time limit setting was enabled (maybe during last upgrade?)
As I can't delete any attachments, not even last one (which was a week ago). Only ones I have access to are ones I have mod rights on.
Allow users to delete attachments, even if the post edit time limit has been exceeded

Sorry for the delay getting back to you, this is the first Christmas in a very long time where I have been relatively disconnected (and still will be till the 6th really)
I will look at the settings but I dont recall disabling it specifically.
When did you last knowingly do it?

Definitely last April when I last updated my Facebook Privacy Settings Guide. I'm pretty sure I've been in more recently than that, but couldn't say when.
PS Well done on getting yourself a well-earned break

I have switched this setting on for now, I dont know when it would have been enabled to be honest as I dont remember turning it off.

I can assure you that I was able to do it every time I changed the facebook guide up until the most recent one, so it got 'turned off' sometime between April and December 2012!
