Only someone with super secret special powers can delete a thread.

All paid members used to be able to delete their own threads. CC took that away because he likes clutter.

If you mistakenly make a thread that you can't fix with an Advanced Edit, just click on the "Report Post" button under your name (looks like !!) and type in what you need done. A Mod or Admin will take care of it.

I didn't mean to.

When did that happen?

The only place you shouldn't be able to delete posts is the recycle bin.

Yeah, now that's how it is. Previously, paid members could delete their own threads regardless of how many replies there were (except for in the RB). Its how I kept all my Marketplace threads tidy before I was a Mod.

and to clear up the "subscriber gets the good stuff" questions I'm sure I will receive, It costs me a lot of money out of pocket to keep this site up, and on a very fast server. And theres no advertisements for people who are logged in. The subscribers are the people who keep the cost vs money brought in at a close enough margin that I don't need to place ads all over the website like all the other 4x4 sites out there.

Hi. Welcome to the internet. The phenomenon you've experienced is called a "thread hi-jack." A thread hi-jack can happen at any given moment in any given thread. There is no defense. Any attempt to defend your thread will result in the situation you attempted to diffuse- a hi-jack.

The only true defense against a hi-jack is a good offense. Creating a lame ass thread which does nothing to stimulate the readers is a sure-fire way to not get jacked, but you're thread will be short lived. That's about all you can do.

Imagine you're riding a bus. The bus isn't really a bus, it's a bread truck. In the back of the truck you notice Aretha Franklin in a camel clutch being applied by the Iron Sheik. Two rows over you see Teddy Ruxpin snorting a line from Barbie's ass. A chimp is driving the truck and eating mayonaise. You look throught the windshield and see that the truck is about to plow into a group of hippie protesters. Now, how do you take away the mayo from the chip, save Aretha, and get in on some of that Barbie action without leaving any hippie survivors? Yea, it's a lot like that.

Weather permitting, I will have a "hay cornfed" post tomorrow.

BTW......that was a really good story in this post.:tonka:
