Default How to delete thread?

Please Login to Remove!

The FAQ site says we should have the ability to delete our own posts/threads through the "editing" option, but that the administrator can change this availability.

Does anyone know how we can delete our threads, or if this feature has been disabled (maybe just for me?)?

thanks

You should be able to, others are able. It was possible in the recent past unless that has been changed.

Doesn't appear to be the case anymore, at least for me. On other sites, the delete button is plainly visible. Here I've looked everywhere I could think of in the edit window.

I think you can for 4 Minutes afer posting it. Then it requires a Mod.

If this is true, I suggest they change the rule. It would make things more smooth, and avoid double posting now and then. Sometimes, after posting we realize it'd be better posted in a different forum. If we abide by the "don't double post" rule and we can't delete, then we're stuck.

I think it also locks if viewed or replied.

It easy to abide by that rule. After you post if you find it in error, reply to the thread and ask fo it to be moved. The Mods work fast.
