Re: Slight Rule Change! Editing posts limited to 7 Days. Trial

Coming to this thread late, I know.

I'm not sure I agree that the seven-day rule is closing any kind of legal loophole. Nothing is deleted really. When a post is edited moderators and admins can still see all the edits across however many versions there are. Each time Save is clicked after an edit, it creates a version. We can also see the original post that a non-mod "deleted."

Halfway through a glass of bourbon so ignore everything I just posted.

Re: Slight Rule Change! Editing posts limited to 7 Days. Trial

Please donít screw up mainesail. I learn a lot from his posts.
I post when bored, tired, or have the luxury of Internet. When moving about often donít have the time or the internet connection to post or correct things. Iím a poor speller in spite of my education and a bit convoluted in my syntax. My autocorrect also screws me up frequently.
So Iím not a fan of this change. Iím a fan that the fact the post was changed is noted and think thatís enough.

Thanks Donna. And not to be anal about this, but I still havenít seen an actual explanations as to why this change is/has been made.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.

Re: Slight Rule Change! Editing posts limited to 7 Days. Trial

Yes, Mike, you're being anal.

Did you read my first post?

Think about it, Mike.

Any person you've replied to can change their post at anytime in the future, when you won't see it and call you an utter ***.

Any person losing an argument can do a George Orwell 1984 and come back and change their post.

Vertical Scope owns 800 forums. 1 of which had this loophole that 799 did not have. Can you blame them for fixing it?
Can you blame us for protecting you, and the Forum? And the 'you' doesn't need to be you, personally, but any member.


Thread closed. Pm me, Jeff or Donna if you're still disgruntled.
