I wonder if you can get a keyboard extension with all the little symbols you have on some letters in European languages.

i think there is no need to have the option for the delete buttons for reason that some people might abuse it. editing your comments with with "*deleted: (reasons)" is enough

It would make the forum more tidy. I also can't add new quotes to posts that I edit.

I don't think it'd really be necessary for posts to be deleted.
And also, what if you delete a comment for whatever reason, but it has been quoted?

I have a new idea, can thread creators control their own thread? I like the idea of thread creators controlling their own threads. That way moderators have some of their work cut out for them, and the thread creators can keep their threads free of un-needed spam, and off-topic posts. If thread creators are unfair, and are acting like douchebags, than we can report them to the moderators who'll have visible access to all the deleted posts for proof.

There's a rather high probability that your idea isn't wholly possible with the current forum engine.

Moderator rights to everyone? No, i don't think this is a good idea. As result, you will get exactly the bunch of "unfair douchebags" deleting all the "un-needed spam and off-topic" they don't like to see in "their own" threads... and then the endless squabbles and complains to real moderators: "i was executed for nothing! I want for you to restore this and this and this and punish him and him and him!"

 

Let things stay as it is.

I don't think most of us here are douchebags who'd delete every post we don't like. Even if some of us are, it's their right to control their own threads. While there may be negatives, I'm sure people like MarcZ would appreciate the ability to delete off-topic replies instead of their threads being locked. I know I'd like the ability to control my threads. Like "Sci-fi Art," I want to make sure that nobody posts bad spam art.

 

For added security, I was thinking of a post # requirement for it.  Or a "certified thread owner" appointed by the moderator but like Armchair said, this whole idea probably isn't practical.

Maybe. But my experience tells me that people, in general, worse than they tend to see themselves. Being given the moderator rights, they WILL abuse it. Here, on this very forum i faced with moods like "OMG, how dare to write this in MY thread... freedom of speech doesn't mean your freedom to write such a trash!". Guess what will happen if you give those guys the moderator rights?

This is actually a valid point.
