    Combing through the taigachat code I was going to see if this needed to be written, but it appears to be a feature already:

    <phrase title="permission_dark_taigachat_modify" version_id="0000" version_string="0.0.1"><![CDATA[Edit/Delete own shout messages]]></phrase>

    So lets enable this, the big reason I use discord over sb is for the ability to delete your own messages if you make a typo, so lets give this to our web browser friends.

    Im a bit skeptical on this one, it does sound nice to be able to do it, but it also comes with the risk that, if someone is harassing or causing commotion in shoutbox, and someone tells staff about it, that person can simply delete the messages before evidence of the messages happening are screenshot.

    Unless staff shoutbox logs also saves the deleted messages o.o

    Logs are saved.

    Right now you could just do the same thing on Discord, because you can delete your messages there.

    The logs are saved now yes, Im aware o.o But the question is if this gets accepted, if the logs still will save those deleted messages or if the deleted messages wont show up in the save logs if its implemented o.o

    Like I said, you can already delete messages on Discord. It logs deletes.

    This would also log deletes.
