It would be a horrible idea for regular members to be able to delete their own posts imo.

Someone could make a post that breaks the rules ie: spam, flame a staff member or a fellow member, post racial slurs etc etc. Then they could delete said before staff are able to see it and take action against them.

This could be beneficial if it was coded into the forum that staff could see a post that was deleted, then they could still be on top of things even if a member thought they were slick and tried to delete a troublesome post.

In an ideal world the ability for members to delete posts would be a great idea, but until we mature enough this would be more trouble then it is worth.

Just my two pennies. :)

To put this in perspective here, me as an admin of this site can't even fully delete a post on this forum. Only soft delete with the unremovable option of undoing the delete at a later time...making threads and thread lists incredibly messy.

As for regular members, basally comes down to that's a mod action and you're not a mod.
