Deleting posts
Questions: is this a new option on the edit page ? To check a box and delete your post, and if you are the original poster you can delete the whole thread ? I thought only moderators could do that ? Is anarchy going to ensue ? (J/K )
TIA for 'splainin'

The option has always been there but you can't delete your post whether first in the thread or later in it. I have that turned off. You can edit but not delete. Does that 'splain things?

I guess I just never noticed it before ? : I tried checking the box to delete and hitting the delete now button and it says I don't have permission to do that. So I guess there is no new options to delete, I just never noticed the thingee at the top of the edit page before. Funny how that can happen. I guess when I edit I usually am so intent on what I am going to change I don't just "look around" the page too much.

Thanks for 'splainin
