Welcome to the new Lounge, powered by Invision Board. There are all kinds of new features and options here, which we hope you'll enjoy. Check out the news thread for more info about all the new functions: ignoring posters, email privacy, and more. But if you run into trouble, or have other things you'd like to swee tweaked, discuss that here.

I know it's only rock 'n' roll. But I like it.

polly, I don't think that the person named as the thread-starter IS necessarily the thread-starter, so maybe it wouldn't make sense to allow them to delete those threads?

It's just that I've noticed my name listed as the thread-starter on several that I KNOW I didn't start....I've actually started very few threads. I think the person listed as thread-starter must be whomever's post was the first left standing after a thread-cleanup...in some cases, anyway.

I realize that issue, doodle, I'm just talking about all these threads started by newbies, where we know who started them. There's a forum I go to (here) where when you start a thread, you have the option to delete it, like if there's no replies, it's in the wrong place, etc., but the option only appears to you when you're signed in- no one else sees it. I'm thinking that if this were possible on this board, we could email the person, explain that we like to keep threads to a minimum, could they please delete their thread and post in the appropriate thread, wherever that may be.

I know, it freaked me out when I saw that i allegedly started a bunch of threads, too....funny, I don't remember starting the "I'm gonna miss 'em" thread. huh.gif

P.S. I just watched Eddie Izzard's "Dress to Kill" tonight- brilliant!


--------------------
You went to school where you were taught to fear and to obey, be cheerful, fit in, or someone might think you're weird.
Life can be perfect. People can be trusted. Someday, I will fall in love; a nice quiet home of my very own.
Free from all the pain. Happy and having fun all the time.
It never happened, did it?
