    I'm not sure whether it's a bug,but it seems not user-friendly if there's no option to delete the conversations.

    You leave the conversation instead. It was "delete" and that caused even more confusion.

    But do you include the possibility to delete conversations?

    You could include a function where the user can enter a message why the conversation is going to be deleted and an alert/message/stone thrown to the other user(s) to inform them about the erasure.

    Are you referring to deleting a conversation out of someone else's inbox? I don't see that being an option.

    Well that might be a problem. If I want to delete a conversation, I can't because the message might disappear from the other's inbox too.

    But what if I'm a totally organized pen-pusher, who don't want to have out-dated PCs in it's inbox?

    Leave the conversation and it disappears.

    Fine,it works for me.Please close this thread.
    Is it possible to offer thread creator the power to close his thread?When I create a thread and the question I raised was answered,so I wanna close this topic by myself.

    that would be a great feature.
    I also wanted to close threads which I have created myself.

    this would take off the work-load from moderators.

    Such a "power" is often and easily abused. Not only do I not see the point, but IMO, it's not necessary in on any level.

    Closing threads is a terrible idea and should seldom if ever be done. The point of forums is to communicate. Closing a thread stops communication.

    You're right in some way. But sometimes it is neccessary to close a thread.
