    Sometimes I make a post but then I want to delete it, the problem is I can't seem to find that option anymore. It use to be up where I could edit a post but now its gone. Is there something I'm missing?

    ^ Yeah I can see my name, the time I made the post, then the edit link, then the report button but no delete button.

    Can you tell me which post? I'll try looking at it, then we can go from there.

    I know I've seen others who've deleted their post.

    The more details the better, if you think a post vanished, we should investigate.
    Which forum, time, etc?

    No post vanished though. I was originally going to delete a post I made in the news/rumor thread about the 86 movie rerelease since I forgot to add a quote from the guy I was responding to so he would get a notification that I responded to his post since I was trying to help him. But he eventually responded to the post so I don't need to delete said post.

    No it was in this thread...

    Transformers: The Movie 1986 getting remastered this September!

    But like I said the recent post I made in the thread has no reason to be deleted now. I was just wondering why I couldn't delete a post if I needed to in the future.

    It's the same post... I linked post, you linked thread. :)
