I'm pretty sure you're right. I just tried to delete one of my threads and there was no option to do so.you can't delete your own threads. only an admin can I think you can delete the initial post but the thread remains.
I could be wrong though.
You better figure it out...The mod log shows I deleted it but I don't get it. I was LOOKING for it because i come back to see it like I said.
This is not right. why the hell would I delete it yesterday then come back today asking for it?
I have backups from every day for the last 9 years. i'll figure it out. I have a backup from yesterday morning a few hours before it shows deleted. it'l be a chore to do this. but keep posting here and when i get it back i'll merge these posts

When you're looking at the forum as an admin, you can tic boxes for mulitple threaads. then use the action to delete threads. I did this yesterday because I made a thread i didn't like and wanted to delete it.
I bet MONEY what i did was accidentally checked the useless thread as well and deleted both.
i have backups. but this is going to take some time. so hang in there with me, I'll get it. if I can find a way to move this entire forum to vbulletin's disastrous new version, then figure out how to migrate it to this I can find a way to recover one thread.
