Is it possible for me to delete my own threads?

no, it's not possible. is this the thread you wanted to be deleted? if so, why did you even post it in the first place? you can't change the thread title once it's posted, so you called it "please delete" from step one....

No. Threads are only deleted in extreme circumstances (posting porn, being slanderous/libellous/etc) and then only by Jeremy, the admin.

I am also reporting this post for a move as it's a question about LQ and not Software.

Actually, I had a question that I had been looking at for about an hour. I then clicked what I had thought to be "Submit Reply". So I believed my message had been posted.

For some reason, I realized that I had solved my own problem in the next 5 minutes. Well, I decided to delete my message. But instead of having hit submit reply, I actually hit Preview Reply. So I now thought I was in the process of editing a message that had ALREADY been posted. Therefore, I changed it to "Please delete".

As it turns out, it hadn't been posted yet, but the way I goofed up, my original message because "Please delete". Sorry for the confusion.

If you post a question and then later discover how to solve it, please just post a reply to your original post with the solution. You can be certain that at some point in the future, someone else will have the same question, and if you post the answer you'll be doing that future reader a huge favor -- J.W.

Yes, but this was incredibly stupid. I thought I deleted some dependency that Kate needed because it wasn't showing up when I executed it. I couldn't find any diagnostic message in ~/.xsession-errors.

It turns out I already had an instance of it running on another virtual desktop.
