I should not that I know if I add the Editor role on the Media Library site side it works. I am wondering if I can make a permission that is universal to an Editor that allows them to see across sub sites!
I have implemented the code you recommended in the function and it works great in getting me to only get my own replies to be deleted.
The issue I am having now (and last one as far as I can see) is the my bbParticipant can delete an entire forum. I can make one, which is what we want, but if that is the case I want to only blow up my own forum. My guess is the same theory applies here for deleting my own forums? Great tech support. Thanks!
