Hey - we can delete our own threads again!

... I wonder when (and why) this has been changed again?
I discovered it purely by accident.

I just tested it. Yay, it works.

Maybe the mods were tired of people asking them to delete threads all the time.

Dark - you didn't delete the test-thread in Marty-Party, did you?

I just lost about a dozen posts . And I was brilliant in that thread. Brilliant, I tell you!

And you didn't tell me?

(Well, I barely start any threads, let alone delete them - so how would I find out?)


And hello King A.

You could delete this thread. The irony.

Or you could just leave it, so others will know that this feature is working again.

Yes, that's precisely the thread that I deleted to test it out.

I was pretty good in that thread also. But life goes on.

I don't like it. I don't think you should be able to delete a thread after other people have posted in it, cos then you're deleting peoples posts. Which is bad. Thanks.

This feature doesn't exist for people to just delete threads. But sometimes one posts a thread making errors in it (a poll for instance) and want to delete it, or if there's a doublepost of a thread cos you hit the reply button twice, or if you notice you posted about something that already has a thread,...

I think it's only normal people can delete those threads. If people abuse of this feature then it's their problem.

[I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in.]

[Once we were called secret admirers, now we are just called stalkers.]

[Restraining orders are just another way of saying I love you.]
