Thread: Delete Posts?

  1. #1
    One thing I miss here is the opportunity to delete your own posts, and if your the thread starter the entire thread.
    I've had 2 threads that I've started with questions that I pretty quick found the answer to thereby making them unecessary(sp?) I've edited it so it will quickly vanish in the depths beyond page 1, but still, could have saved a few bits storage on the forums server if I could have deleted my posts at will

    Yeah, but that post could come in handy for somebody else who might have the same problem. I know its rare, but people do sometimes use the search button

    I'd like a delete button, just so that I can delete and double posts.

    how so?

    it works well on other boards.

    like in my above post, i said that mods were deleting lots of topics anyways. then i realized that was because i had "show topics only from the last thirty days" on... so there was a good point in deleting my post..

    There isn't too many bad things of deleting your own post, if you compare to the good things.

    Even if We members could delete Our own posts, people will take adventage of it, if a post is deleted by a member or a staff member the post count will still remain the same. That means You can post 100th of post and delete all of Them the next second. The delete buttom is for the staff, it&#39;s Their job to keep the forum clean with Our help PM&#39;ing Them.
