Delete entire thread if it is only your own post - YES

While everyone's point is valid here, we all sometimes puts things in a board post that are stated in a "less than optimal" fashion. This includes posts which were stated unclearly, posts that were intended as humorous, but really don't come across in print, posts which appear to attack another member, etc. Given the limited editor available, it is sometimes difficult to visualize just how bad these posts will look until they are viewable on the website. A poster needs a "oops" period where they can go back and edit (selfcensor) their thoughts and (hopefully) prevent unintentional flame wars from occurring (or just avoid looking like an idiot). How about allowing edits/deletes for 1-2 hours after the post is sent, and then locking it afterwards? This would allow people to make corrections, self censor, add links/graphics/etc. and still preserve the integrity of the thread.

I agree totally with this, I answer the same.

I don't write on here very much. I do get online and read a lot though. I especially like to read the threads when I'm at my Mom's house! It's funny to see how silly people get about stuff. I like to see it as it's written.

I've never been on a forum that didn't allow editing of your posts for at least a little while! When I go back and read them within the context of the thread, I often find myself editing for clarity. Rather draconian to not allow that in my opinion.

The members have spoken and the board has listened!

Thanks to those that participated in sharing their opinions, there will be no further deleting of posts in the WGA forums.

I wish everything could be this easy. Image
