I think only a moderator can delete a thread

Actually, any OP can delete their own thread in entirety by clicking the edit button and clicking the delete thread button.

Yes.

I have been unable to find the 'delete thread' button, and started a new thread on the topic in User Assistance: https://www.bikeforums.net/forum-sug...l#post21011290

Click the Edit button.
Click Delete.

This message will come up in a grey area underneath the message:

To delete this message, check the appropriate option below and then click the 'Delete this Message' button.
Note: deleting this message will result in the deletion of the entire thread because this is the first post in the thread.

Underneath that area Delete Options.

Select Delete Message.

In the bottom right corner of the grey area is a button that says, Delete This Message. Click that and it's gone.

I had the same issue. I made a post a few nights ago and after posting it didn't show up so I reposted it. The next day I noticed I had two posts identical. I tried editing it to delete but there wasn't a spot. The only thing I could change was the text of the post.

Just learned that only Titanium (premium) members can delete their own threads!

I have previously posted about such a heated discussion on this Living Car Free Forum, maybe the same one:

You're also right that you could not find it.
I deleted it

I think this is outrageous. You have no right! How were you able to even do that?

To be honest I'm not all that comfortable with the thought that a thread starter can just delete someone's contribution at will.

So if may pose this question, What is the value or utility to you of looking up old posts/threads? I would assume that any useful information would be utilized soon after reading.

Early on after joining Bike Forums I copied and filed a few posts for their content and style, but not for years.

And it won't be long before this forum disappears entirely ... say, maybe, 5 years or 10 years.

If you think what you typed had some "Voice of God" like value, you should have saved a copy of it.

However, if there are comments I make which I think I might use again, I save them in a file. Then I copy and paste them into threads as desired….

I too am shocked that an OP can delete a thread.

Sometimes I consult past threads for research I or others have previously done on some topic under discussion; and sometimes I see posts that are very well written and thought out and I would go as far as saying they are literary contributions that deserve to be archived for posterity

Whenold posts/threads are looked up and commented on by one poster, it gives another poster on LCF an opportunity to bellyache about referencing so-called zombie threads.

Such earnest complaints are always entertaining. :lol:

It's all sorted in the Forum Help subforum. :)

BTW @Jim from Boston, that was MY thread.

This thread is quickly becoming my favorite - I hope it goes on for 20 pages!

What is the antecedent thread to which you refer? Link please, or it didn't happen.

Why is that if I may ask? This is seemingly an obscure, rarely encountered question.

It's gone now, so there is no link.

So, if I may ask, what was the topic, and why did you delete it? Inquiring mind(s) want to know. :innocent:

Just kidding around. She intended this to be a one post, temporary thread, where she created it and immediately deleted it.

Carbon Fiber members can expect their threads to asplode.

Precisely why I did not ask the mods to delete... :innocent:

Sigh. Just hasn't been the same since a certain person left the building.

A thread about deleting threads is a valiant attempt, and certainly worth keeping alive, but sadly it does not bear comparison with some of the classics in the LCF archives.
