I don't see why not, since you can always edit your post anyway.

Must have been a recent change then.. :o

Edit: Uh, apparently "Leaders" have access then? It shows a "Remove" button right next to "Modify" for me.

If you have moderator rights on a forum / subforum then you can delete all posts, which includes yours...?

I don't have moderator rights anywhere, nor can I delete anyone's comment...?

I dunno. Different forums do it different ways, but it would be great to have this. Yes mods have it, I don't think that is the request. The request being, is there some reason why users should not have it?

The only reason I could think is if/when a user gets banned, they know why; it will say "user was banned for this post"
As for now, we can just replace text with "Deleted" or whatever

Leaders aren't mods. You are just users who can post frontpage news basically :P

If we were to introduce "better than colours" as a title we'd have to set it as the default user title.

I'll give you leader though. How'd you go so long without it?

I would also like the ability to delete posts restored.  Pretty useful feature,  not sure why it was removed.
