Deleting a post under review

I am wondering why I cannot delete a post that is currently under review. When I hit delete, this is what I get, “you are not permitted to view the requested resource.” While I totally understand the need to review posts, waiting on approval will sometimes make that post unnecessary or maybe even wrong in which case the writer may choose to delete. I look forward to some clarification. Thanks.

Hi @ALandis,

Thank you for noticing this and bringing it to our attention.

I am not sure if there is a technical workaround. However, in this situation, I would recommend sending a PM to @connectmoderators asking for the post that is under review to be deleted.

I think that will resolve a great majority of these situations.

Please let me know if you have any other concerns or can help me think of a better approach to this issue!
