    I've posted a thread, then realised there already was one about the same thing.
    Is there any way to delete my own thread?

    Errr...

    There is a report spam button? :p

    Naw, just PM Nik or Sky. I think that's pretty much the only way.

    If the thread is about the same subject, you can also request a merger, btw :)

    You can't delete a post either can you?

    EDIT: No. Well, that is, the traditional option doesn't exsist anymore :(

    Used to be possible, tho.

    Nopes you can edit a post any number of times you want - but deletion comes from the mighty mods only.

    Technically we don't delete threads (instructions from on high), we just move them out of the general areas so nobody can see them.

    Or as Turambar said, we can merge similarly themed threads into one big thread so nobody's posts get removed.
