You can edit posts for up to an hour after posting them. I changed it because certain users were going back and scrapping the previous contents of their posts, making for very confusing threads.

We'll change it back if our new forum software supports keeping logs of edits for the site staff to see (and potentially revert).

This won't be necessary,
a. I could check my posts a bit more, and
b. also have the habit of adding stuff days later, so
c. I might be even be on TerminX' Black List.

Some people are too afraid to "double post" so they will edit a post from a while back. Just post twice. It doesn't bother me. I do it often.

We're talking more about blanking out and/or replacing entire posts from months ago.

WHAT??? People on this forum would never do that!!!! :dukeohnoes: :dukeohnoes: :dukeohnoes: :dukeohnoes:

Seriously though, can we turn editing back on for the mapping section of the forum?

For an example, I didn't know about the editing problem and I reserved a post below the first one for more map information and to included some renders of the models. I can't do that now.
Also, we had an announcement thread. I wanted to keep everything in one thread, not have an announcement and a separate release thread. We can't do that at the moment.
On top of that, I forgot to put some information into the first post about Mblackwell's Polymer lighting speedup. Each time we do this, I have to come running to you, cap in hand, to get changes made. It would be great to just be able to edit the post ourselves.

Maybe just be able to edit the first post in a mapping thread? I don't know if you have that fine control in the forum soft.

I may be wrong, but I don't think that it would be abused that much (maybe naive of me I admit) in the mapping area. It tends to be people releasing maps and updating release information.

Maybe allow certain members who we know won't abuse the editing feature to have perpetual editing privileges? Is that possible?

I was going to suggest that myself, but from what I understand, the guy responsible for getting this particular restriction implemented wasn't some "ban-me-I-dare-you" character, but a developer.

Heh...yes.

Is it possible to just disable the feature for certain members?

Editing posts at any time after posting will return when we're done migrating to XenForo and can record edit histories.

I noticed that the feature is still active for PMs.

Can it be enabled for different sections of the forum?

Oh, and Mark, no, you must have imagined all that. :unsure:

if this software & the one being migrated to are 'typical' - then yes, it's possible to allow editing by only certain individuals & only in certain thread - but it can be tedious to do that.
then that opens the door for why person X can do it, but person Y can't. And same about each thread. The blanket policy is the best policy until the admin is happy with the logging system.


I like to edit because my grammar is atrocious & I usually don't catch it until much later, but I can live without it if that's the decision in the end
