    Well Cylli wasn't far behind me, so she should be able to if it's that. Also, it's always weird for me to remember that I've been here longer than LDH.

    I remember when I did have a delete capability. However, I haven't had it for some time. I once asked Boom about it. He just said regular members couldn't delete their own posts. No explanation of why I once could and then couldn't. I've gathered since that some members have the capability, but most don't. But no explanations as to why.

    yes, time for an explanation, time to get one of the big officials of the forum to come and start talking to us to explain why some can and some can't.

    People can't delete posts any more because people would post things to cause trouble, then delete them. Starting fights, and then erasing their post to cover up who started what. So now nobody can delete them. The few users than can (or could) should now be fixed so they cannot. They were in usergroups that inherited old templates. ie The Fighters house.

    This shouldn't be a problem. Think before you post, you won't need to delete it.

    but that doesnt really make much sense, because people could easily edit there post to make it look innocent... :)

    The fact that an "edited" post remains shows that a post was made. Like a placeholder.
    Not to mention admins can track changes.

    I wouldn't bother lamenting about it. The ability to delete posts is not coming back.

    That is what Sky just said. But anyway, it shows that the post was there, but it doesn't show up on post counts or who posted last and stuff like that. So they're much harder to find.
