    ...why can't i delete a thread i start anymore?

    i have been here over two years (with over 2,000 posts) and in recent months, this option has been taken away from us

    please give us back that right!!!

    otherwise, this site rocks:)

    I want the right to delete other people's threads. That would be sooooo cool.

    "Hey, I have an idea. Apple should port OS X to Intel! Wouldn't that be awesome?"

    CLICK! Wheeeeeee!

    Also, I want the ability to change people's descriptions... so instead of "6502," or "Demi-God" or whatever, they become "idiot" or "retard." :D

    >"idiot" or "retard." :D
    You mean idiot or retart. :rolleyes:

    I think that being the moderator is as close as you can come to being the Almgt. on the forums.

    Q: If dukestreet is a moderator and a demi-, how come his name is in bold and yours isn't, eye? The same goes for Lemon.

    probably because I have a forum that I'm the sole moderator for. Not that it gives me any special abilities, I can do just what the other mods can do.

    And being a mod is a responsibility, you abuse your powers and you would incure the wrath of the gods - not a good thing.....

    It seems like we would still have the ability to delete our own threads. I can see only mods being able to delete any threads, but I've screwed up a few threads I would have liked to delete.

    Re: um...

    Is that an implication that you don't? No, you're not a retard if you don't know what 6502 is. 6502, 65816, 68020, etc. etc. are all processors.

    that's exactly the reason why...

    amounts of order, interesting choice of words. The nature of most of our duties ends up closing down bad threads - that's what i've done more than anything else. I have split some threads, moved them, and redirected some though.

    I'm guessing on another site since I think only eye, duke and AL have held mod status here.
