Hi tankers! I suggest editing here on the forum so that you can delete your post or thread next to editing as it is in other forums. This would certainly be a good forum.

I vote for allowing the deletion of other people's posts.  Some of them certainly need it.

You can always edit them and remove the content, or ask the mods to delete it.

The only ones who would really profit from that would be trolls and overly butthurt people.

I wish I had the ability to not post on the forums in the first place.

There are few situations in life that cannot be resolved promptly, and to the satisfaction of all concerned, by either suicide, a bag of gold, or thrusting a despised antagonist over a precipice on a dark night

Fixed that for you. You're welcome.

It is meant to write a post and then find out that someone wrote almost the same, so I should be able to delete it, similarly with the topic.

You have to edit, as said above, & use "Advanced edit" so that you can change the title.

 

Be careful, though - I once edited a new post and changed the title & content to " 8< ", the scissors (snip!) sign. That got me a warning point!

 

So, change the text to "Post deleted by poster" or something....

Just ask a moderator to do it for you.

 

If any user could just delete their own posts willy-nilly, they could post offensive messages, or do other stuff against the rules, and leave the thread or post to be there for an hour or so. They can then delete the thread/post before a mod can come and lock/delete the thread/post, escaping punishment unscathed, yet their message was seen by numerous people...

 

This is the reason why no good forum will allow such freedom.

Delete content and replace with standard notice     " I HAVE REMOVED MY CONTENT DUE TO HAVING BEEN UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOL "

No thanks. I would rather have people say wrong things, than be unable to say anything at all, ever.
