I'll close it. We don't delete threads with answers.

We don't remove threads with answers. You posted the same question twice and a moderator merged the duplicate into the active thread.

Got it, thanks! Sorry for the confusion. Can it be left as an unopened help/question? Issue still not resolved please.

It's truly mind-boggling that this site doesn't have basic functionality from deleting a thread you've created to not even being able to change your password. Seriously, what's the deal?

i definitely think you should be able to delete threads and comments. wasnt aware you cant change your password, but that seems ludicrous as well.

The edit function? In what way?

To prevent people from doing this:
---------------------------------------------
"I have a question that involves a combination of foo and bar. How do I get this working"

2 days later...
edited to:
"Nevermind, I solved it"


well gee, sparky. Someone else on the planet probably has that same problem.
---------------------------------------------
Or worse...
original thread of anything.
OP comes back a year later and edits it, and all of his replies, to:
dfgdfgdfgdfgdfgdfg
--------------------------------------------


Yes, people do that.

Yeah, that sucks. Definitely needs some editing restrictions to prevent that kind of abuse.

My only complaint is with the Editor itself. That darn "Maximize your chances of being answer" and other popups will appear and cover the area I am typing in. Then I have to wait for it to time out and disappear before I can see where I left off so I can continue.

A) The link provided does not point to a thread you own.

B) Your only thread has replies. We do not remove threads with replies as someone else may benefit from it.

I have, however, locked the thread.
