And all of them are modded by the hosts, basing features in phpBB based on free forum hosts is an awful idea imo.

As such, there is a Game Moderator for each thread in the Game Forums. I am on the Tech team at that board and have created custom code to allow topic authors to edit and delete all posts made in their own threads in the specified forums. The modification was actually fairly simple and I may consider releasing it as a MOD in the future. However, that is what I think it should be left as. Because the boards that would make use of this are few and far between, I don't see it as an essential feature in the core of phpBB.
Totally agree with this, whilst some boards this is useful to for a lot it isnt, and mind you having such a feature would encourage admins to try it when they dont need it :/ (it happens, just as users spam every new bbcode you install for a few days, many admins love playing with new features) - Its available as a mod, and if not, why hasnt someone made it? Should remain as a mod, vanilla is for everyone, mods are extras for those that want them and not all need.
