    A few times I saw the delete button beneath my posts! It happened before in the USN. Now it happened again in the USN. When I refreshed it was gone... But I actually never pressed it...

    But my bug is that it happened here and on the old temp as well only in the USN. If I see it again I'll make a picture.

    I've seen it only at my own made posts.

    You're not the only one, I've seen it too.

    Though I think that only happened when Costy was doing the "experiments" :unsure:

    it's possible that in some sections permissions are configured so that you are allowed to delete your own posts.
    that or there are caching issues... or the new server duality is causing unexpected issues.

    Strange bug. There are no sections that allow members to remove their posts.

    Have you tried clicking it, seeing what it gives?


    Don't think this'll be easy to debug. Can't use my own account either...

    Well, for me it only happened once, I didn't click it though.


    My guess is it will probably give you a error, like the bug that happened with the warnings that gave you the option to alter your warn level.

    Clicking gives you this:

    Are you sure you want to delete this post? It won't delete the whole topic.

    Delete button

    Moderators will still be able to view this post.

    Some other forums allow users to delete their post if nobody posts after them in the topic.
    Maybe that's the case here?

    I think this is part of the server's concious mind selecting its special users. They will lead humanity to another enlightment. On top of that, they'll also become moderators.

    Ah, so if the users could delete, it would be only a hidding feature from other users.

    Use the edit button and remove the content instead, it's more effective, even mods/admins can't see it XD
