I've noticed a couple of times now where I find out an answer to my question before anyone posts a reply, and I want to delete my post because what I asked is just so completly wrong that it can't get an answer, but when i try to delete it it says that I'm either not logged in or I don't have permission. It does say I'm logged in as myself, and I have checked to make sure I was trying to delete the right thread. It does however allow me to edit the post so maybe this is just some safety you instituted?

You should never really delete a post anyway. If you find a solution you should post it. If you are having a problem then chances are someone else will have the same problem. By posting your fix you will be helping someone else.
yah i know, its just when I figure out that I was doing something completly wrong and the question barely made sense, I want to delete it, but then half the time someone gives me a fairly good answer like with this post and the post I did that made me do this post...
damn i'm tired and need food, so uhmmm yah ignore everything i've said
