Default Closing a Thread

I thought the person who started a thread could close it, but I can't seem to find the right place to do so. Help?

I want to close the "Knitting needles for trade" thread in the Fiber Arts room.

Thanks!

If you still run into problems, let me know, I'll close it for you.

I just looked for a 'Close Thread' option in this thread....

http://thisbluemarble.com/showthread.php?t=42892

It is not there, nor is it in any other thread I started recently that I looked at. I do not believe that regular users have permission to close their own threads.

Look again, I just changed permissions to enable regular users to open and close their own threads.

The feature got lost in some vBulletin update?

You may have to log out and then log in again. Right above the first post is a drop down menu for Thread Tools. Close thread is in there.

Thanks, I swear I looked before and it wasn't there. Maybe it was the logging out and back in that did it. Just because I can, I'll close this one too. :
