    At the moment, people are only able to edit or delete their own posts - but not delete entire threads (even if they are the OP [Original Poster]). Only a moderator can delete threads as it stands right now.

    Just wanted to raise this as a question to everyone here. What do you think should be the policy on this? Allowing everyone to delete their own threads could potentially lose some valuable discussion if others have also contributed replies. On the other hand, if there's a thread which is only relevant for a short period of time perhaps people would rather delete it, instead of having an old discussion hanging around.

    Look forward to hearing your thoughts on this!

    Cheers,
    David (yes, I'm still alive! )
    Happy to see you here and thanks for this information.

    Not delete, but OPs should allowed to close the thread. If necessary!
