How come I can't delete all my threads?

    Sometimes I start a thread and want to delete it shortly after because I make a lot of stupid mistakes, figure them out and want to eliminate my post. Most of the time when I 'go advanced' there is a delete option, but recently there have been a few posts where it doesn't give me an option to delete. What's up with that?

    You can delete your posts within a thread, as you've mentioned. But when you start a thread, you cannot delete the first post -doing so would delete the entire thread (and everyone else's posts at the same time).

    I know, but i've done it before. I just can't do it to all threads.

    There are a few forums (such as classifieds) that have additional deletion permissions set. I know that you can delete your own ad (thread) in the classifieds...
