Why I can't delete my topic

I see this warning when I want to delete my topic:

I have the right to delete any of my topics!! Right?

People have answered you in the topic, so no, you do not, because you don’t own it any more: it isn’t yours, it is shared between you and whoever has posted in the topic.

Deleting now directly affects other people and other people’s accounts, so you can’t just arbitrarily decide you want to do that. That action is effectively the same as you deleting any other topic on the forum which has multiple posters, the fact you started the topic isn’t really relevant.

The only point at which you alone own a topic is if you are the only person who has posted in it (at which point you are free to delete as it doesn’t affect anyone else).
