Either my internet connection is clunky or my computer is....either way I have ended up with a couple of accidental double posts I would gladly have removed.

Not a huge problem...either tell a mod/admin to delete it or deal with it.

Indeed.

Besides, if it was a double post issue, or a redundancy issue, it wouldn't matter if they quoted your post, there should be nothing to hide from there.
If it's something you shouldn't have said, it's your own damn fault, and you deserve to be quoted.

Mods aren't on 24/7, you know. And mods for a perticular section are on even less (Meaning, there may be P101 mods on, but they can't help in GD, and vise versa). There's sometimes hours that go by before reports get delt with, why wait that long?

What's wong with being able to fix your own mistakes?

edit out the post. then report it requesting deletion.

It's worked with VT for so long... Why does it matter if we change it now?

Sectional moderation means less mods for a given section on at a time. Why make double posts, mistakes, etc sit there? Why give the mods extra work to do?

If you ever need to talk, you can PM me. I can't promise I'll solve your problem but I'll do my best to help.

cheers for the thought but its not extra, we've always done it
so for it to be extra it would have to be a new thing we would be required to do

its not even that much trouble
its like 5 mouse clicks

It /is/ extra because you don't have to do it, it's not something that only the moderators can handle. We're not children, we can handle it, believe me.
Every suggestion I've EVER seen that might possibly take bit of load off a moderators job seems to freak them the fuck out, and I just can't understand why.... What makes you guys so afraid of change, for the better? Afraid you might have more time to post? *Gasp*

If someone messes it up (which they will more than they do now) then itll be more work for us to mop up

its not a load, its not as if we are being flooded with double posts
if it was a big enough problem that you are making it out to be then maybe, but its not so why bother
and people would still double post anyway so why bother.

Yes i am, because when i do people seem to get worked up over something that isnt important, like you have done here

How can anyone possibly mess up nuking a post?

I can't say I'm making a big problem out of it, but I do support it.
The people that double post anyway aren't the people that would use it. This is for people who /actually/ care about the forum, and how it looks (As well as how THEY, themselves look).

Not worked up, at all.
I just can't see why ANYONE is against it, something so small, that the average joe won't know that's it's being used, so it won't effect anything. I'm just not seeing the reasons for not having it.

I never been a fan of deleting without limits because in a long discussion thread a deletion of a few posts that disappeared completely it can be really disruptive and cause confusion. I prefer to keep history preserved as is as much as possible.

I would much rather have moderators deal with the minor double posts and things like that (which aren't crucial, time sensitive) then to have members delete whatever they want in a free for fall. Yes they can edit but at least people can see that a post had been made and that they aren't going crazy when it looks like someone is suddenly talking to themselves because the other half of the conversation is gone.

Again, this isn't a suggestion for free-for-all deleting. It's for ONLY deleting the LAST post IF IT'S YOURS.

Odd.
I suppose if it's not possible it's not possible. But it'd be a /very/ nice feature to have.

I believe someone mentioned before that they had that limitation on their forum. Is it possible there's a hack that allows it, even if it's not built into the software?

Sure its definitely possible that such a hack can be made. Finding it and implementing it is another thing.
