I am a room owner in PHP and occasionally people ask me to delete things. As I understand it, room owners can't and probably never will be able to do that. However, according to http://meta.stackexchange.com/a/87773/170584 I should be able to move messages to another room (such as bin). I have just one question: how? I can't seem to find any way to perform that action. My searches haven't proved helpful as well.

You can click the "room" menu in the top right of the room you're owner of...

room menu link

...and then select the "move messages" option:

room owner menu options

You'll then be able to select the messages you wish to act on and move them to another room using the "relocate" button:

Fist time I saw that link I thought it was a way to send a message to the admin. –  Yannis Nov 16 '12 at 23:00
I didn't find out how to do it until two nights ago. –  casperOne Nov 16 '12 at 23:01
Can I move posts that are so old (2 days) to only be in transcript? –  Double AA Mar 5 '13 at 4:43
@DoubleAA Hmm, I don't think so, unless you "load older messages" in the live chat view until they're shown to be selected there. –  Tim Stone Mar 5 '13 at 14:35
