Hello!

I can not figure out how to delete a topic I create! I have been looking around for over half an hour and I still cannot figure out how to do it... I am assuming you just have to have your topic closed, but how do you do that? And sorry if this is the wrong forum for this question, but it seemed best suited, especially since you can't post in the New User Orientation section. Thanks!

I deleted it for you.

In future, if you have a topic which you would like to delete, send a Personal Message to one of the Moderators and they will take care of it for you.

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

especially since you can't post in the New User Orientation section. Thanks!

You should be able to create a new topic in that forum. I just tested that function to verify. You cannot reply to the pinned and closed threads, however.

Nope, I just tried it again and this is stated:
Sorry, you do not have permission to start a topic in this forum

Unless there is another way to start a topic besides clicking New Topic.....
