Lori...here is what I said...
There is a difference that I just found...A thread does NOT have the delete option..but a post does...
A thread is the start of a topic... you canot delete the thread (which is the beginning of the topic.)
A post is something in the string after the thread has been started - it can be deleted in that short time frame window.

This is getting confusing.

To clarify;

Threads and topics are the same thing.

Threads/topics contain posts.

Forum structure

A forum consists of a tree like directory structure containing topics (commonly called threads) and inside them posts.

A post is a user submitted message enclosed into a block containing the user's details and the date and time it was submitted. Posts are contained in threads, where they appear as boxes one after another. The first post starts the thread; this may be called the TS (thread starter) or OP (original post). Posts that follow in the thread are meant to continue discussion about that post, or respond to other replies.
Members cannot delete the first post of a thread/topic.

Members may delete subsequent posts within 60 minutes of posting.

Members may delete the content of the first post if 3 characters remain. However, this is not recommended. Please contact a moderator to delete a first post.
