Default Deleting our our threads

Why can't we? It always says I don't have permission.

You can always PM a mod or SuperMod or admin to do it.

Or just edit the thread with something like "Please delete this thread."

I see. I just wish that was an option that was available to us. I have a few I'd like wiped, but I don't wanna burden anyone when I can just do it myself. You mods have alot on your shoulders already.

It's also not allowed because it can affect the rest of the thread. For example, if you start a thread and there are replies to it, when the first post is deleted, all of the posts in that thread are deleted.

You can request that a thread be deleted, but it may not be due to the information that is contained in it.
