    Hello there,

    Why is it only possible to edit your text in a short period of time. After that you can only quote your text. Why is this? I am a member of many other sites which do allow you to change your posts.. Is it because the possibility occurs that someone edits his or her texts so that it doesn't makes sense any more?
    That is imo neglectible.


    regards.

    Because there are persons who would abuse that function for mischief if they were allowed that liberty. e.g:

    Thanks bro. I can understand that. But how often does that happen?

    Btw why can't you upload photos in an embedded way so that they are displayed in the thread itself?

    The examples given, are only the most recent. This issue goes back quite a while. When I first joined, you were allowed to edit and delete, for as long as you wanted. Then, we had a string of problems with it, and the owner instated the limited time. I can't remember if there was a short period of NO editing, but I do remember there was a brief time with a 1 or 2 minute time limit, and then it got bumped up to its current limit. Editing also includes deleting. There were also a couple of incidences where people who had been here for a long time, went through and deleted all of their posts, leaving unintelligible holes in threads, as well as the cover for denying something was ever said, etc.

    So, there's your historic rundown on the issue. :wink:

    As inflammatory threads can be deleted, and I am not a moderator who could still access to those hidden threads, I cannot supply you with statistics for that question. Yet, as I have shown, the fact that a troll can post an inflammatory comment, get a reply/ or replies to it , then edit the offending portion of his post , is a known occurrence. A short duration edit function would limit such trollish behavior. Quickly quoting and reporting the troll's posts before they can edit them gives the moderators evidence needed to justify banning these miscreants.

    The main reason pics can't be embedded is one word:

    bandwidth.

    which can also be translated into one word:

    money.

    The main reason is that threads are a series of successive posts built upon the previous post. If you go back and change a previous post then the successive posts may not make sense. The thread may lose continuity.

    I agree with you here ROb but I am still wondering how often it occurs on a forum with 480.000 users and 166.000 threads. This is still one of the few fora that doesn't allow editting your post after a while. But ok rules are rules :).

    With more threads/posts it would happen more often.

    I agree with Rob whole-heartedly on this.
