Let users delete their own posts

Postby Whispers » August 28th, 2015, 4:28 am

What it says on the tin ^.

Arguments for the defense:
1) I can already edit my posts. So if I say something stupid and people call me on it, I can edit my original post to <....> in which case I might as well delete it.
2) If I'm the last post in a thread and I have something new to add *and* I want that new-post-bump to attract attention, I'm stuck double-posting. Letting me delete my current (last) post, would solve that.

I rest my case, your honour :D

Hey Whispers!

I just wanted to let you know we are looking into this right now. It seems currently a regular member can delete their post if it the newest post in the topic but only in a certain amount of time I will look into it if we can remove the time limit or something like that.

Update :)

It should be possible for all members to delete their post now. Previously the time cutoff was 30 minutes after posting.

We're still looking into deleting posts if they are not the last post in the topic, however!

Thanks! Most of my deletes are when I'm the last poster anyway (to avoid double-posting) so that works for me :).
