    if you post a thread and someone posts a reply then you delete the origional post, will that delete the whole thread?

    I should have seen that coming lol. I guess only Mentors or admins can delete threads. They can edit posts and alter threads too. So if they really wanted to they could snip out your original post and then make the second post of the thread into the thread topic post. Not that there would be much point in doing that really.

    Yes, so his old spot's open now. But I wouldn't get your hopes up- there's lots of competition for it around here.
