Seems like premium members lost their privilege to delete their own thread.

Am I right?

Or is there a special trick I need to know?

So we ran into the problem of users mass-deleting their own threads. This can cause database issues, infringes on the replies in the thread, and can delete useful information (as BikeForums should be doing), so should not have been enabled in the first place. It essentially grants mod powers to non-mods. However, the ability to edit your own posts should remain and it's easy to ask a mod or myself for a quick title fix.
