Is there a reason we can't delete our threads??

  • SDN Site Updates

    Hey everyone! The site will be down for approximately 2 hours on Thursday, August 5th for site updates.

I accidentally created two threads that are the same. But it doesn't let me delete them. Is there a reason for this? Has something changed in my absense?

Oh really? I am confused though- what does that accomplish? I mean, isn't it good that people delete their threads sometimes? In case of accidents, etc?

dr lee found that deleting threads leads to server instability.

Haha... they're afraid of a conspiracy where all SDNers will gang up and delete all of the threads, thereby killing SDN.

Yeah, the server becomes unstable... that's it.
