    OK, you want to delete an entire thread? You can’t. Only moderators can.

  • He can delete a thread, AFAIK, as long as it does not have replies. There should be DELETE button and if that post doesn't have replies yet, it can be deleted.

  • AFAIK stands for "As Far As I Know".

  • --and there was I thinking the "F" stood for the same thing as in RTFM.

    I think btw that it's fair enough that a user can only delete a thread that he has started that has no replies to it (even though I was once caught out by this myself).

    We get a fair share of people who when they see the answer are embarassed by how easy the solution is. I'm sure they would love to remove the whole thread, yet if they did people with the same problem wouldn't be able to find that "simple" (simple is often when you know the answer) answer.

  • I am so used to computer abbreviations, that I use them freely in my writing.

    AFAIK - As far as I know

    YMMV - Your mileage may vary

    BTW - By the way

    IMHO - In my honest (humble) opinion

    PITA - Pain in the (rare)

    SWAG - scientifically wild (rare) guess

    and a few others I use on a regular basis.
