Could you please allow to delete your own last post?

Hitting the Image near the right bottom of your post does the trick.

Is there a timeout for it? That it is not available after period of time? (testing by this post).

No time limits.
FYI: if you are searching for them, I just deleted 3 of your "Delete" marked posts.

Ok. I can see the [X] button here but can't see it in other forums. For example my last reply here looks like that, no [X] button.

I'm not sure but a possible limit might be: "your" last post in a thread can only be deleted, as long as you stay in that thread.

But if you can no longer delete your own post, you can always edit it and remove/replace what you want.

I see, it makes sense.

No, it does not work for last post in the thread. It looks like that right after I posted it. It looks like the [X] button is enabled in this forum only but not in the others.

Could it be an issue with the new forum style? I use the old style and I can see the button in the last post in the thread:
