    Well I believe you can still delete threads that you have started but you cannot delete your posts that are in the middle of some thread.

    Well clark mass deleted all of his posts. I fail to see how deleting one by one would be a major issue.

    Not really, he can use a proxy and make a new acct etc, if he wanted to. You can only slightly ban someone on the internet.

    Nope.

    Also, having the delete option does not mean it works. It is just a relic of times past.

    Here's how it works:

    MODERATORS can delete any post in the forum they moderate.
    USERS can delete no posts anywhere.

    Here is how it SHOULD work:

    MODERATORS can delete any post in any forum.
    USERS can delete their own post, provided that no one has posted after them.

    I think it should be this way

    mods can delete any in their forum. Mods should be able to move threads to the thread grave yard in spam cases only.

    members can delete their own posts if it is not the first in the thread.

    No mass delete of any posts.

    It used to be. But not any more. The admin can enable and do it, but it is really no ones power. This is because of a guy named dave clark who got all pissy at the forum admin (he was a super mod) and he mass deleted all of his posts so that no one could benefit from them. He left tons of threads broken.

    i think that it would be nice to be able to move all threads as a mod. that way, for example, if i move a thread from out the lounge and it later goes way off topic, i could move it back.

    well the mod of the other forum can always do that and it is not really urgent like spam. I can remember several times when the whole forum got spammed but I was the only one on, no super mods or admin in sight. I wish I could have done something about it but I couldn't.

    Thats exactly what I suggest.
    We, the users, should be able to delete our posts as long as
    there're no posts following it.

    I also suggest that the user should be able to delete any
    thread that he or she started.
    Once a user thinks that his thread isn't of use any longer
    or once his problem resolves, when someone that posted in his thread
    does a search—they wouldn't have to bring up his old thread everytime.

    That part I don't quite agree with. The purpose of these forums is to help Web Developers with problems or questions they have. If we were to delete the threads that are resolved, we would have to answer the same questions over and over again. We already do enough of that, thanks to those pesky members that don't use the Search feature
