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

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.

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.
