No edit or delete functionality on comments?

We can’t have issues with the boss! :slight_smile: Happy to help!

I feel like it must have been kind of understood by implication, but the ability to simply reply to comments would be fantastic. :slight_smile:

Absolutely. Comment improvements are on our wishlist, but currently other projects have priority.

Hi, I’m sorry if this is the wrong place to ask but could I get a commend deleted please? I had to share my e-mail with a client because our regular channel of communication went offline, and I’d rather not continue to have it listed on a public searchable page if at all possible.

The comment is on this model:


Sure thing, I have removed the email address from the comment. I did leave the comment itself in place though as otherwise I’d have to remove the reply too :slight_smile:

I second everything that’s been said above about comments. Editing our own comments at least when it’s a comment on one of our 3D posts sounds like a sound necessity.

Agreed! We’re aware and it’s on our todo list :slight_smile:

Jebus man, has this seriously been on this “To do list” since Jan 2015?

Afraid so yes, we’re a small team and have to prioritise how we spend our time. It’s not forgotten though!

I do believe being able to delete a comment entirely rather than having an awkward ‘this user has deleted his comment’ note in its place would provide for a better experience. For example, in response to someone asking if it’s available for sale, I once posted that I wasn’t eligible to sell models yet but they can buy it on cgtrader. Now that I have become eligible to sell models here too, I want to delete this post because it’s not true any more and because it’s driving customers to my cgtrader page (which has less of my models). But I’d rather not have another ‘comment has been deleted by the user’ box showing under my model because that kinda sounds like the person must have been up to something bad like trolling. That’s because on most other social platforms you see those kind of ‘comment removed’ labels appearing when someone was moderated. On the other hand, I really don’t think people occassionally breaking some conversations by deleting their comments would be an issue, at least it’s not on other discussion sites. Facebook allows deleting your comments for example without any problem. I would prefer that solution over the ‘comment removed’ thing :slight_smile: Just my two cents.


I agree, I’ll add your +1 to the feature request.

I know this thread is from six years ago, I’m a long time user of sketchfab and am frustrated by various issues on the website, it seems if there is a choice between a new visual effect or improving website functionality the former always wins out.

Will it ever be possible to completely delete comments on models without the manual intervention of a moderator?
And also preview and edit comments?

Many thanks, not getting my expectations up.

Yes, we still have this high on our wishlist!

Another gripe worth mentioning about comments. Once I comment on a post, I forever get emails about new comments on that post, which is rarely interesting to me. I really only care if I get a direct reply or a mention. I can’t seem to figure out how to unsubscribe from a given model/posts updates.

This feature is getting closer! Soon you’ll be able to delete any comments on your own models.

That’s a good point, I’ll forward it.

I went poking around my account settings today and noticed there are settings under notifications that fix my issue.
“when a new comment is posted on a model I also commented on”

Not sure how many of those check boxes are brand new. Happy they are there, and the issue is resolved thank you.

That turns off ALL such notifications though. What I liked about your suggestion is that you should be able to stop receiving them for a specific model.

Thanks for the clarification. That would be nice.

UPDATE: It is now possible to delete comments on your models AND to delete your comments on other people’s models without having to submit a report. Just hover your mouse over the gear to the right of the comment that you want to remove and click “Delete”.
