Ok. I see why. You have permissions as a mod of your own forum, so the shoutbox (being a module coded by a third party) thinks you are a global mod and presents the delete button, but since you are not a global mod, it refuses to take action when you try to use it.

And yeah, I can delete my own posts, so...

That would explain everything and make no sense at all at the same time!

(Going with the scientific method, the next step would be for tec to delete his own post and see if that works.)

I have deleted the message, and it seems to be gone. Maybe you have enough permissions to see the delete button, but not enough to REALLY use the button.

I still see it too. Maybe if someone who's not me deleted it?

I see it, Daris.

I just wrote and deleted a shoutbox message and that action doesn't show up in the moderator control panel either. Maybe it just doesn't log the shoutbox at all?

Edit: Also it doesn't stay deleted. It disappears when I hit the delete button, but as soon as I reload the page it's back. Can any of you see my "This is a test, please ignore" message in the shoutbox?

Hm.

Is there a way to throw in an "Are you sure?" dialog for deletion so we can avoid further causalities on the Kadrokpocalypse?

Odd.I'll check the logs and see.

Nope. No logs for the shoutbox, but it certainlydid delete the post.

Yeah, now that you mention it it's probably just Kadrok's fat thumbs, since this all started around the time he went adventuring, and it's a more likely explanation than some phantom bug. :P

Weird. Hope it isn't just my fat thumbs (since I've been stuck on phone for a while, and I'm sure touchscreen accidents happen every now and then...). I wonder if there's a delete-log?
