Default Ability to delete your own posts.

I think this would be a good idea, in case you accidentally double posted, or realized that your post wasn't needed, or you have second thoughts about a thread you posted.

Now, I've heard a certain complaint before. Wouldn't it confuse people, if there was a missing post? Well, on a forum I was on, you were only able to delete a post if no one had posted after you, otherwise you'd have to request it to be deleted.

Whether if someone poster after it or not, I think you should be able to delete your own posts.
If you have double posted, you could carry the things in your second post to your first post, and then it could say "This message has been deleted by "The Joker". Reason: ( for example ) I double posted"

This was suggested awhile ago and was turned down, so I'm guessing this wont happen.

The reason I remember people having a problem with was inflamatory posts being put up when no mods are online, then having them be deleted by the user

im sure they would only be able to soft-delete.. mods can still see it, and it still shows up in new posts to mods..

But I mean members cant move or delete, its what mods are there for. If you have an issue, just report it using and a mod will take care of it as soon as they can.

In diaries, if you delete something the mods of the diaey can still see what it was. It's probably the same things when legit mods delete something. It's still there for them.

I am not opposed or for this, really.

Not really since you had no proof to back it up. I was just reinforcing your statement.

No. This is just an excuse to say something hurtful and then being able to cover it up and mask the effects. You can edit your posts. That's enough.

^ This. It's definitely possible. But for a site like VT, its not going to happen.

I think you're really over thinking this. On the forum I was on, when it was used succesfully, there was no such problem.

i think we should have something like that, just in case no one needs advice anymore or maybe just want to forget they even posted what they did

Get ready. I'm coming to get you.

But they won't be able to cover things up from the mods, or if someone has replied, etc. The same effects you're proposing can be made by editing your post to remove all content. People have the ability now, yet it's not generally being done. I think the main use of it would be for accidental double posts, or if someone has genuinely changed their mind about posting something, or realized that they only repeated what others had said.

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.

I dont think this is a good idea people would be deleting their posts left and right. It's better to just let the staff do it after all it's part of their job
