The ability to delete replies and topics

Hello.
Well, as the new version of the forums came out, it got some nice features which people noticed weren't in the previous version, and one of them is the ability to edit a topic's name by its OP.

 

I suppose it would be cool if we can get the ability to delete our own replies and topics. And to make sure this feature won't be abused, it would be available only for the first 30 minutes of posting the reply and/or topic.

The problem I see with something like this is it would get abused. Even if it's only available for the first 30 minutes or so it would give people passage to make posts, threads etc that could be deemed rule breaking and delete them before a staff member can see it..

 

Leave the post/thread removal to us.

It will get abused, this happens on websites that allow that.

Not all my posts are enabled to be edited though. This is a problem as I no longer want them online.

I don't find it necessary to have. Why would anyone want to delete an entire topic just within 30 minutes after publishing? If I am interested to start a topic then I am totally sure about posting it. T

 

I've seen people request a topic deletion on a site i am an admin on and most of the time they request a deletion because the topic isn't going their way or something of the sorts so other than the topic already been created and they didn't know it until they already made their, to finding their topic already being discussed or answered elsewhere to the posters not posting the way the topic creator wanted (i.e Topic relating to an opinion about something and the OP says one thing thinking everybody is gonna agree but everybody else is disagreeing with him and he doesn't like it so wants it deleted so others don't see his embarrassment of getting his ass handed to him)

Even @uNi will tell you that yes you can other than you being temp banned from the site you have the ability to edit all of your post and topics going back to your very first post in 2013

 

All threads and post are editable always have been and always will be in fact since we upgraded to IPB4 we can now edit the titles of our threads.

 

Here is a post of mine from July of 2017 and look I can still edit it

and here is a GIF showing that I can edit a Topic I created back in 2018 if you scroll to the bottom you'll see where I added today date and time to prove it.
