Default Delete button is missing

Dear admins,

I accidentally posted to a very old thread because it appeared on the newest threads list, then realized it was a very old thread. So I went to delete my post and the delete button was missing. It is still missing, so I was wondering if this is a change to the forum, or if it is an anomaly that requires some sort of fix.

Either way, if I cannot delete the post, would you please do so for me:

Thank you.

The delete is seen for a short time after a post to give time to edit or delete. After the short time the post become permanent and a mod or admin will have to do the deleting.

I tried to delete a post immediately after posting (to figure out for someone else how to delete), and I could not find any option to delete.

Why, though? Why remove our option to delete posts? That was a nice safety option for when I think better of what I said, and need to get it down before anyone sees it.

Yeah I looked everywhere! I tried deleting about 1 minute after posting.

Yeah I have found the same thing. I think they changed an option in the phpBB setup (or an upgrade changed it for them - that happens all the time).

Thank you for that! But the real problem is that now I can no longer trust myself to read the forum in the middle of the night when my filter is weakest.
