    this prolly belongs in the site news forum, but you can now delete your posts and if your post is the first in a thread the whole thread gets deleted. does this effect your post count?

    well i was wondering if it was a mod only thing, so i deletde a post and it worked, than i wondered if i had been upgraded to a mod without being told (wishful thinking) so i checked my profile and i am not a mod so i fuigured it was for everyone. but i already did delete one of my threads

    I just tried it, it didn't work. Maybe I'm doing it wrong. It says I don't have authorization to do it.

    Hmmm. I just tried it and it worked for me.

    Could it be a Demi-God ability?

    so, we can do a little more - there are still some things we can't do. which is probably for the best.....

    if you need to delete a thread, you can always ask one of us.

    Thanx, but I think I'm developing some pretty good tweakage ability without all the mod power. :D

    Re: NEW delete post option

    Just a sec, don't be bothered about Post Counts ;) If you ignore them then its a cool supprise when you reach 1000 or 2000 etc... Its the content of your posts not just sheer quanity.

    thanks for pointing that out, taken care of. I was probably a mess up, hitting new thread instead of reply - I've seen members who weren't newbies do that.
