Look at this: http://ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=737522


As you can see, I have a double-post in that thread. I would like to delete the first of the two, but when I go to do so it says, "Only Physically remove available." What is this?

Well soft deleting has been disabled recently, meaning only hard delete is available. Hard delete however is only available to mods :p:

It'll get sorted.

I'd assume that it means only a mod can delete it.

when a normal user deletes a post, it isn't actually deleted, just removed from the page that's viewed by normal users.

mods can still see deleted posts and I assume that it's been disabled for some reason and only the physically remove option is available but only mods or higher can do that.

or I could be talking complete bollocks... I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

I assume it'll be back at some point.

EDIT: that like the 3rd time in 3 posts i've been slightly too late.

at least I wasn't completely wrong.

To speed up the forums, stop people getting gateway timeouts etc.
