Do not take offence. The mods and I can only soft delete to keep accidents from happening, which happen. Of course attachments are still lost during that process, so there's not a lot I can do to get those back if it's accidently soft deleted.

This is about preserving the hard work of countless people through accidents. I don't know about you guys but I'm not always at my soberest when on HBT and accidents happen.
I understand the logic behind deleting threads and i completely agree with it. But I'm still not clear on the ban from deleting our own posts (not threads) unless its a software limited package deal or something.

I understand wanting to avoid people being upset and contacting you if they delete a post and want it restored, but that still seems even less of a hassle than having every deleted post have to go through a Mod. I don't know how many deletes there are on a regular basis but I'm sure the ones people are upset about are far outnumbered by the cognizant and intentional deletes.

I don't mean to complain and thank you for everything you do and I can certainly live with however you deem fit to run HBT but I don't understand the removal on post deletion.
