how about an option that allows you to delete your posts. sometimes i post things that i would like to take back. it would be good to have that option.

I don't think theres any way that that will happen. Just be careful what you post :)

@drifta, 30 mins of edit time should be enough to delete anything "acute" you have written, lol

I agree with drifta, a delete button would be handy as there are some posts which are "solved" and pointless to anyone else, what a waste of space?!

On the whole, Moderators do delete posts which are "a waste of space". But not all. We have our reasons :)

Sure, but I just think it would be cool for just "Members" to delete their own posts if they choose :D

I think chaos could ensue. You can always ask us if you want something deleted. (the decision would not be uni-lateral)
