You can delete your own posts, deleting threads would probably help scammers to cover their tracks though...

You can, but you can't delete your own threads, as explained above.

This is in Firefox. Thanks to gary_rip I now know that there are a few formatting issues with IE, so I don't know if the same boxes will display without error messages in internet explorer.

Posting a pic http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/images/editor/insertimage.gif in IE for example, must be really confusing for new members because of the errors displayed :thumbsup:

After all the work sigma went to. :-D

You can Spam your own thread with the help of another member to do so.

You shouldn't be doing it willy nilly though, I would expect that you would need a good reason just like you would do if it were someone else's thread.

Okay , I laughed :-D

Didn't take long though - one screen grab with quick drawings hence the rough & ready.

Been mentioned before about deleting posts & it was suggested that only the OP should be allowed to do it. This is from memory mind. Think concerns were raised about people being able to delete deals for wrong reason eg if they weren't happy with temp etc

I know I've reported threads to MODs before where OPs have requested it & deleted info in thread, & they have been subsequently deleted so it is possible now, just through a MOD & for a reason :thumbsup:
