Test - I can't delete my own post (this one)

I found a bug. I can't delete my own post. I used to be able to do it on the "old" WTAworld. Maybe the admins forgot to enable this option for everyone.

[edit]:

Okay, I just did some more tests.

I found this out:

- I cannot delete my own post only if it is the first post in the thread, meaning I started the thread.

- I can delete my own post if it is not the first post in the thread.

I wonder if this was done on purpose to everyone.

Indeed, as far as I know, it's the same for everyone. Several ppl have reported the same in this forum.
WTA_amanda has never addressed this question, and the admins (who CAN delete a thread) seem not to know...

Personally I think the webmaster has chosen - for now? or forever? - to reserve that power to admins (and maybe mods too?)

must be becoz of ppl deleting threads just becoz they have a bad day.... i guess it's a good idea that only teh admins can delete the threads.

TBE - maybe it's because you're a mod that it worked for you?

Admins get to do it in 1 try, mods in 2 ?? - lol

Nope, that doesn't work for me.

It might work for you because you are a mod.

I'm talking about deleting the first post in a thread therefore that will delete the entire thread.
