We should be able, with admin permissions, to delete inn or posts ? Why we canโ€™t ?

Storage is cheap. Post deletion is dangerous and easy to be abused by people with power.

Inn deletion is so rare that I never thought about it. And I think nobody would need it after your reminder.

I found no other instances exist other than this website. I use feed heavily for rss reader, and private inn for personal notes. I build freedit because I need it. A lot of feature requests are just out of popularity, which is not true.

Please let me know when your site is too popular to handle. I would add these features, I promise. But before that, I just want to keep it simple.

Okay, I would tell you when my website is quite popular, Iโ€™m just afraid that people create inns that are prohibited, or that illegal content is posted.

Iโ€™ll keep you informed, I like this project.

@Sacaro Thanks! If you are running an instance of freedit, please let me know (Donโ€™t have to tell me your site domain). I might be more careful to make break change.

@freedit Yes, I have a site running on Freedit, with a few people on it; the problem is that itโ€™s on the Tor Network and today one person has just created a โ€œpedoโ€ inn, Iโ€™m unable to delete it because Freedit doesnโ€™t allow you to do that, nor to delete posts.

for security reasons, only the admin should be able to delete inns and posts. Itโ€™s a real problem that inns canโ€™t be deletedโ€ฆ

Maybe Iโ€™ll pause the instance while I wait for the update to avoid gnes posting on the inn created by the guy :/
