Hey guys,
Just a quick Q really: Why cant users delete threads/posts they started? Why can only mod/admins do this?

Mainly to stop users from deleting threads that have been answered and thusly stop others from learning from that thread via the search.

There are other reasons why as well. Thats one of the reasons why the 30 min rule was put into effect as well.

Deleting one’s own posts is not cool as community board posts belong to all and to the community itself.

It also keeps people from deleting “evidence” :wink:
