    Question Just wondering...

    How come we are not able to delete our own posts now?

    Yeah, why can't we? A while ago it was sort of on and off, but now you can't at all. This is bad. People frequently post in the wrong places, or hit "New Thread" instead of "Post Reply", or such things.

    So many sterile ends
    I chose the Devil's path

    Never shall the sun kiss my face
    And caress me with it's burning light
    For I dwell in the shadows
    And sleep side by side with death

    i believe it has something to do with the fact that dave clark (i think) deleted each of his 5000 posts when he got upset once.

    You could limit the amount of deletes to 3 a day and 20 a month or something.

    if($neil=="stuck"){echo("Help!");
    pull_out("hair", $neil);
    $neil=bald;}
    else{echo("What do you want?");}

    there are plenty of possible solutions, the problem is finding practical ones. i doubt that would be easy.

    It's not like you couldn't edit all your 5000 posts now and remove everything you wrote

    What's wrong with deleting your own posts? You posted it, it's yours, even if it's digital. If you want to retract the statement, why take away that right?

    Well maybe it is not allowed as a measure to stop threads having cracks appear as people delete posts. I am impartial to be honest, i will just edit my post if i believe it is not worthy for the el developers'.
