    This is extremely annoying and I can't edit the post to a blank message.

    @CeramicTitan You can always report the post and ask for deletion.

    I need you to understand - in the least disrespectful way possible - how counter-intuitive that is

    @CeramicTitan I think the real reason why we don't have that option is that users delete their post after their problem was solved which really defeats the purpose of a forum. You can always edit a post to say "nevermind" or something. I still don't like that unless the user didn't really contribute to the thread which I would have no idea if they did or not.

    Who's in charge of the forums? Because I'd like them to know about this.

    @CeramicTitan I never received a straight answer for these things. All kinds of features were disabled or hidden, then vaguely claimed to be intentional. My only guess is that Curse has messed up updating the forums and chose to ignore the issues instead.

    @Necrodoom_V2, updating Xenforo be nice too. Viewing this site on mobile is an absolute pain in the butt. If anyone wants to know what I mean, look at spigot on your phone. That became a thing with the most recent major Xenforo update almost a year ago that Curse never implemented.

    Well, heres an idea tim:
    Have a little code make a bot remove a post automatically with the report "Delete" on their own post. Because if you guys are fine removing posts, make the process faster by doing this.

    @ChipDev If this happens I don't think threads should be put into this (Top post) because threads are there to support themselves and others. Threads should only be deleted if it breaks the rules and mods judge that.

    Well, I guess. At the same time, people should only delete their post if it was just them, etc.
    It is extremely annoying when somebody has the same problem as me, in their thread they dont have anybody respond they are like "Fixed it!" and they never told us HOW they fixed it....

    You are always free to ask how they fixed it

    Only within a reasonable timeframe :/

    But yes, that could be a problem if you were able to delete posts or threads. There are always two sides of a coin :/
