many of the other forums I use nowadays include a feature that allows you to delete a post.
it comes in handy when you realize that you said something which is flat out incorrect (or just stupid), replied to the wrong topic, or clicked "Reply" too many times. never again would we have to deal with stuff like this:
sorry to make an example of you Sivis that was the first double post I noticed which gave me the thought.
due to connection issues or posting from a mobile device, you're gonna' accidentally double post once in awhile. it happens.
a simple Delete Post function would be great. one my favorite forums handles it like this; click the Edit Post button and a box opens up below the normal Edit window.
it doesn't function with the OP of an entire thread.
only a moderator can delete a thread. but it functions for all individual posts/replies under an OP.
