Delete funtion

Neo,

eariler today i had tossed up a post then realized i didnt want it up so i tried to delete it and it wouldnt let me. is this a functionality that you have active? To allow a user to delete any topic they started would be a great thing, i think it will also help on not haveing double posts (as most people post then do a search to find there answer) AND and mistakes made such as mine can be fixed wiht little to no intervention.

I thought that the current settings allowed posters to delete their own posts. I will check again. Thanks.

Before, posters could delete their own posts, but not the thread. I've enabled the forum to allow users to delete the threads they create. We will see how that goes Smilie Let me know if this is OK or works OK, thanks.
