how do you delete a thread? it only lets me edit it y?
Only admin and mods can delete theads.
well could you delete this one please, there was suppose to be a poll inserted...
btw...since this sort of comes under the same thing.
how come we can no longer delete induvidual posts?
I seem to be only be able to edit them now :S
I don't recall people being able to delete their own posts.
I've seen people who have been able to delete their own posts, but I can't work out how to do it either.
Yeah, that's true... I was wondering about that. When there's a deleted post, sometimes it says "This post has been deleted by admin/mod," but sometimes it says "This post has been deleted by username."
The person who deleted it may have been a moderator at the time, we've had a few come and go that you may not recognize. We also have deleted threads on request. But for as far back as I can recall the average users do not have the ability to delete posts.
If I hit the Edit button, I have the option to Delete my post.
ah, maybe that's how it worked. BUt yea I do remember being able to delete induvidual posts
Actually, when I first joined, you could delete your own posts. I asked Boomerang about it when I noticed that I no longer could. He seemed not to realize that it had been possible either. But, I assure you it was at one time. I had deleted my own post a couple of times because I accidently double posted. I've never been a moderator.
Boom did say, the reason you couldn't delete your own posts was so the mods could keep track of anything that might have caused "a ripple in the boards". That makes sense to me. Someone could post something inappropriate and the delete and deny it. It's better this way, for that reason alone.
has it again been made possible to delete? cause all of a sudden i can...
ok....I see it again. I saw jackrabbit delete one of his posts....whereas I cannot delete any of mine -.-
I don't think I can delete anymore...I used to be able to delete them. I think it is very handy altho I think you should only be able to delete your last post, cause people could be cheating in a debate if they were able to delete posts they made by making accusation or making insults...later deleting them and then pretend they never did such a thing.
Yes...I used to be able to delete aswell. Now it's gone. It's really useful for double posts!
true. What I also didn't like especially when threads had to be deleted in the SW guild is that there was always a note left that a thread has been deleted...is that really necessary?
is it just me or can ppl delete again?
p.s. seriously Meteorain?
just you :S
Do you guys get this when you press edit?
if so, try pressing the little sideways triangle on the side. that'll bring up the delete function.
