Editing Posts

Folks, can we do something about the edit capabilities? ie: can we allow editing/deleting of posts by the author of the post beyond the current 15 minute timeframe?

Nick, as it stands at this point, the time limit is going to be 5 minutes to edit before and 'edit by' note is added to the thread and 15 minutes from the original post for all changes. Beyond that, you can PM a mod or admin and request that we make a change for you.

However, the mod team is interested in feedback on this subject. If you think there would be a better time limit, please post it here and let us know.

I like the 5 minute / 15 minute limits.

Knowing you can't go back and delete your post after 15 minutes may cause folks to be more careful about what they post

I'll second this. 5/15 is plenty to go back and reword, fix typos, etc.

I was thinking more for a classified ad...ends up being a cleaner post if you can edit pricing/sold status.

Not the end of the world though and I see gaijin's very valid point. Is there any reason why the time to edit is limited? (ie: server demands etc)?

I can't understand why this feature has been introduced - I hadn't seen too much bad guys hangin' around in last few months

Nick, we are working on a solution for the classified ads, since it entirely makes sense to edit ones own ads.

As for edit limits on the rest of the forum, they help preserve continuity by disallowing users to completely reword or delete previous posts. As Gaijin said, it make you more careful about what you post.
