Why can't I delete my own topics?
« on: August 10, 2008, 02:56:39 PM »
I just tried to delete a topic or at least that first post but I wasn't allowed.
This great evil - where's it come from?
How'd it steal into the world?
What seed, what root did it grow from?
Who's doing this?
Who's killing us, robbing us of life and light, mocking us with the sight of what we mighta known?
Does our ruin benefit the earth, aid the grass to grow and the sun to shine?  Is this darkness in you, too?  Have you passed through this night?

I don't think you can delete your own topic once someone else has posted in it.

Well that's not right. I should at least be able to delete the post even of the thread will still exist.

I don't think so. I deleted a thread that someone else posted in before.

The first thread can only be removed if no one has posted in it.

If your post embarrasses you that much, then just click EDIT and then delete the text manually.

lol. :P
