I had an image? we'll I'm sure glad I corrected it... it's almost impossible to not use an X browser these days, granted I still use 'lynx' to test the usability of some sites.

I hate that. There are a few of the older megatokyo era threads where you can see some users went through and deleted all of their own content making the thread unreadable. :(

And those were the days of almost always uber-leet informative posts... :cry:

Is there a time frame before you can delete a post even if it is the last post in a thread?

No! I tested here, it is not possible to delete a post, even if it is the last post in the thread.

Nope, because on multiple occasions I've gone "aw f**k this sounds stupid/awwwwww f*********k this is likely to get me banned" so I've deleted it almost immediately after hitting th' "post" button.

I get the delete button for 2-month old posts and 2-second old posts so...

That's why I now always hit the "Preview" button before I hit submit, to make sure that my BBCode looks right, everything is spelt mostly right, and that it doesn't put me in any danger of getting in trouble.

It's just like working on the wiki: you always preview first to avoid spamming the recent changes feed (and history).

I seem to be able to delete posts that are immediately posted. I cannot see the delete button for posts several minutes ago from other threads though .. even if its the last in that thread. :?

*edit: hm, disregard the above :) It seems to be fine now.

Hi,

Cross-posting from autodelete forum: Brendan has solved the problem which was a registered users permissions thing. As neon noticed, for some reason some of the regular members could still delete their posts anyway :? Everyone should be able to delete their post if it is the last one in the thread now.

Cheers,
Adam
