I have no idea why , but that’s the case.

By the way , you can delete your own threads.

the moderators have that off in some fora

This is not the case.
Only moderators/adminstrators can delete posts. Users can only edit their own posts, removing the contents and leave a message for a moderator that they want their post deleted.

To add a poll after a message has been posted is quite hard apparently, VBB doesn’t support this feature.

Only way to go about this is post the message again, empty the previous post and ask a mod/admin to remove the old message.

I’ve always understood that all the users could delete the threads they have started. I’m sure i have done that while not being mod. Maybe it’s valid only for the first 10 minutes or something.

That might be a possibility. It may also depend on particular forum settings. As far as I know the feature for users to be able to delete their own posts is (and should be) disabled…

Will look into that when I get home tonight
