On the spanish playroom there's opened a thread about the thread deletion. However, I think that completely delete the own threads is not a solution. My suggestion is to add the ability to delete their own messages and lock (close) a thread, because I don't think that the user needs privileges to delete the thread, although it was opened by himself. Really the forum delegates a very limited number of privileges on the user, although the thread/message was created by him. It would be great if the user could have more privileges over his own threads.

Best regards.

Hello, it's indeed a good option, however this was also previously suggested and there are users who would like this to be implemented but so far it's not.

This is indeed a good suggestion, however if I'm not wrong I have made the same in the past, but the answer was obviously no. I don't want to compare or make some controversies but, even in AG we have more features. For example, it's possible to reply twice in the same post and I haven't seen someone complaining if htis is good or not.
i think that we must demonstrate that we're competent enough in order to have a good ambience one another, so that features like this shouldn't be prohibited for all us.

Kind regards.

Yes, it should be needed to demostrate that the people can use with responsibility these functionalities, but I think that saying no is not the unique way to solve a user suggestion. A user suggestion no, a suggestion from more than one user. I think that it won't be difficult to developers to enable this functionalities to the common users, I know that helpers have this permissions because I requested them on many times to close one of my threads.
On the other hand, I don't visit frequently the english forum, so I didn't know that a post suggesting the same was openned in the past.
