I'm just wondering, why doesnt this forum support the ability to delete posts, almost all forums support this?
We all make mistakes.

This has actually puzzled me as well. It's the same here as on Blizz Forums -- can delete neither original posts nor replies. Ever since I joined I've never known why, but I've just never bothered to ask. So......



......why?

Personal accountability. :D

We haven't enabled it because there are ways it can be abused.

Ahh, yes -- I can attest to this from Bnet Forums experience :D

It's the same deal with not being able to edit thread titles. The old Bnet Forums allowed you to delete a thread if you made it, but they disabled this for the new forums since it often allowed people to delete threads that blues responded too. Also, sometimes people would get postwiped and any important blue responses would get fried because of that. Thus, they disabled thread deletion. You can still delete the original post -- just not the entire thread.

However, you can change the title (which can be kinda fun :D)
