Allow Members to delete their own posts

edited March 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 Help

Is there a way to allow Members to delete their own posts? I looked under the Roles and Permissions, and found an option that would allow Members to delete all comments / discussions, but that's not what I'm looking for.

    @hbf - The advanced option allows 'Edit', not 'Delete'. I think it should be designed such that Edit and Delete go together. If you are allowed to edit, you should be allowed to delete as well. I like this idea of having an option to allow Edit up to a certain time period. Even LinkedIn groups have it.

    A workaround could be to do Edit, and then clear the original comments and put 'Deleted' as the new comment. But it still isn't as good as having a Delete.

    What do you think?

    Thanks for your help.

    i actually do not allow editing after a certain time period, since my goal is to create new and better content, rather than modify or delete existing content.

    but having it as an option wouldn't be a bad thing.
