No, only a Mod can delete. You can edit your own once you reach a certain point, which you have.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Why is there a limit on edits? do people enjoy looking at typos, accidental posts etc etc?

There is no limit for edits. There is a minimum post count required to enable that feature to prevent trolls from signing up, inciting shit, and then editing it back out. Or people editing for sale posts who's only propose is to sell on this site. The minimum count was to try and stop this behavior.

Deleting threads was never a user option. There's a record of everything posted. Threads are never destroyed, only transformed.

Also to cut back on spam. One way around many spam filters is to make a "safe" post that will automatically get approved, and then edit in links, images and crap.

Guess I only look at it from the point of a genuine poster, where I like to clean up any spelling mistakes (99 times out of a 100 spot them after pressing the post button). Pity there are so many dishonest people that it comes to that... Are we able to find out after how many posts it becomes enabled?

Totally agree, and we're sorry it has to be this way. For the most part, this is a minor inconvenience for legit members.

30 days and 25 posts, so you should be all good now.
