    I know you can delete a post within a thread, but in the occassion that you double post a new thread, shouldn't the OP have the option to delete one of them?

    I sent a PM to a mod but they signed off like right after. That's fine, I Just feel bad that I cluttered the site and I wish there was something more I could do about it....

    What you did was fine. Members don't need the ability to delete threads, if the had that ability, we wouldn't have jobs :p

    also stops really long threads being deleted by the original poster, which tends to upset people.

    true, good point. I was considering a conditional statement perhaps, whereas the OP could delete it if within a certain time frame and there were no replies yet.

    Maybe if the original poster could delete any thread they created that hadn't been posted in...is that possible?

    We're all full up on mods. :p

    Asking/hinting to be a mod is the quickest way to never become one. Just for reference :p
