RE: Remove time limit on deleting threads #11
The reason we have restrictions, is because we had incidents where the feature was abused (to the detriment of the forum). You can always message me (with a good reason) to have a thread removed manually.

Agree.

This Is my primary concern, hence mentioned previously.

@Oni

With the feature locked behind an upgrade wall, along with the smallness of the active community, I find it unlikely to be abused. Abuse in this case means you just lose threads from an abusive member so even the downside isn't too bad.

I haven't been in an admin panel of MyBB in a long time but is it possible to allow a certain number of deletions per w.e timeframe ? In this case, staff would see activity before it is getting abusive over a course of a week or so. Do threads that are deleted go into an unaccessible place or would it be permanently ? Soft deletes could be an option if that's a thing.

Not without a plugin/modifications. Posts get soft-deleted in most cases.
