    I'm baffled...... what's the theme for this month? Panther? What kind of photos are we talking about? Why do monkeys throw poo? Why does that kitty look like kibbles?

    And so on....

    Is it even possible for a non-moderator/admin to delete a thread?

    Power of a demi-god.
    If you delete the first post in a thread, evey other one goes with it.

    Click edit on a post and read what it says next to "Delete?".

    As had been discussed in the previous thread - using a single thread to post pics is not the way to go here. It will be too much of a mess and too difficult to view all the images if they come in between discussions of previous ones.....

    And don't delete anymore of your posts.

    sure, if its just your post...but tazo did something stupid - he deleted his post, which was the first post in the thread that ended up deleting over 100 other posts, including discussion on logistics and planning for the contest. Not good and you have to realize why you shouldn't do it.

    I should have said *don't delete any first posts in a thread*

    As a moderator could you bring the thread back? At least now we know not to delete the first post in a thread. The warning is appreciated. I have only done a delete post when I accidentally caused a duplicate.

    i think that's the problem.... that because the one post was deleted (ie, erased entirely), the entire thread was.... it's not as though it were sent to the wasteland or something

    it's just gone.

    Is it possible to create a thread where a person can only post a linked image and not type text?

    So this isn't like your hard drive at home? If you know how or have the right program you can recover lost data. Just curious about the situation, thanks.

    no its gone - that's why its an issue. Hopefully all the demis will learn that with their power comes responsibility. This hopefully won't happen again :rolleyes:

    As for photosubmissions only, no, that's not possible.

    Okay we need a thread then with a stern warning at the top that says photo and descriptions only. All other posts will be deleted.

    in the old days, everyone had the ability to delete their own thread, and some got mad if they lost fifty posts on that one thread, but then again, how important could those fifty lost posts from one poster on one thread be?

    i wish we still had the power to delete a thread we started because often one starts an honest thread, and other posters get nasty with it and hijack the thread...i am glad that the political threads do not count as posts though and some posters here on the rest of macrumors avoid the political section or have two different identities like desertrat or others

    i used to also be networkman also but didn't use that other membership for anything special so i don't use it anymore:p
