Editing Forum Posts
Allow you to make changes to your forum posts after you post it.
It’s now possible to edit forum posts! Just visit your post and click the Edit button.
Posts can be edited any time, as long as they’re not in a thread that’s been idle for more than 30 days.
What about making it so you can see what was changed? e.g. what happens on Microsoft word when you press track changes, so what they wrote has a line through it but can be read, and the other, desired text, is easily readable
how to make the lives of trolls easier on the internet:
1)allow them to troll then change what they said so they're not as easily spotted anymore
I agree that there has to be a short time limit on edits otherwise this would make the forum much worse. But with the time limit, editing will help prevent double and triple posting which is a huge nuisance on the forums now.
voted - agree with the italicised date stamp. And a better qoute system could be used as well.
I don't use the forum that much, but I've seen other people who would benefit from this suggestion. I would love it to be implemented.
Seriously, How does this have such little votes? Everyone wants this but no one votes on it, rediculous!
This is needed I think. The newly edited post can say at the bottom in italics
"Edited at (datestamp)" So people can see when something has been edited.
If there were like a 15-30 minute time limit on something like this I could see it being very useful to go back and fix an error without having it wide open to forever change your posts and thus minimize the potential problems while still leaving open a window of opportunity to catch those errors you realize you've made right after you post. Wouldn't expect much argument against that either since the window is sufficient without being too big.
I think that this change should be adjusted without voting :)
