A Deletion Problem
Ok, I made a thread in "roll call" as a test, ( I just now learned how to "quote" things and i wanted to make sure i did it right) so anyway now i go to delete that useless test message and i get this:
You do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
You do not have permission to access the page that you were trying to. Are you trying to edit someone else's post or trying to access administrative features? Check that you are allowed to perform this action in the Forum Rules.

Just a guess, but go back to the main page, refresh it and see if you are still logged in...........I sometimes get that problem if I have not been active for a while?

Nihil, no dice. I am logged in properly did the refresh. then I went back to roll call and tried to delete my thread and i still get the same message. do you need a screen shot or do you understand the message im getting?

Are you using a tabbed browser, perhaps?
If not, you cannot change it.
Not because you are NOT using a tabbed browser, but because you are trying out a new feature, which this board knows you know nothing about, so it gladly saves all your silly goofball mistakes to trumpet to any passerby who will then roll on the floor and laugh out loud. And we thought computers were just electricity and metal bits.
Edit: This is a joke, get it? A JOKE!"

Firefox is a tabbed broswer is it not? so i guess i am using one. I dont know about your theory of keeping my post around for others... it was just my stupid post that said "test" and all i tested was that i knew how to use the "quote" function properly ( I do now!)

No, I haven't checked it out yet. But on most of our forums registered users cannot delete threads. I would assume it's the same here.
