This is what it says when I click the checkbox and then Delete Post.

RE: I can't delete posts.
Hmm...
You can't delete older post for sure, new posts however remain deletable for a certain amount of time I believe.

Anyway
tell me what post you like to see deleted and I see to is.

It's been replied to now. It was one of those post, then realize it's stupid kinda comments. I even tried to delete this thread just to check and no luck. Same screen, same message.

I don't understand. The ability to delete posts was removed?

Apparently.

Although, I don't see why you just don't edit your post with the text "deleted".

Because I'm OCD like that.

RE: I can't delete posts.
I made the "no deleting posts" rule, so I'm not sure how the current admin feels about it. I'll explain why I made it though.

When someone deletes a post, especially after it's been replied to, it ruins the flow of conversation, and more importantly, allows the "deleter" to twist things that have already been said. In fact if someone edited a post down to nothing, or changed it in a way other than typos and stuff, I'd remove their ability to edit at all. Fact is, when you say sumptin, it's been said.

But thats just me, and to me deleting a post feels dishonest. Instead I prefer the "remove-foot-from-mouth-and-explain-what-you-were-smoking" method.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

I see. I guess I understand. Once someone quotes you though it's pretty much 'cat outta the bag'.
