Nope I am against it, unless it would be confined to Subject of it's own. Then only be controlled by the poster there and could be ignored by those who those not wanting to view "rants and raves". Tirades an get ugly and this is a GREAT place the way it is. Pleasant and for the most part clean. Ask for edits, are seen to in a timely manner.  And some us can be quite near the edge at times but still be good posters/members. I wouldn't want people to form an opinion of me from a rant, on possibly a bad day and maybe have a lesser opinion of my personality based on that. Everyone here seems to be pretty diverse although we all share an interest in the same thing, our safe and operable computers.  Plus we have a bit of fun and share many chuckles along the way!  Sometimes with tears I laugh and sometimes with tears of sorrow, but this is a VERY GOOD place...Landzdown!

personally, i think we should be able to edit, um, eternally.

For what is worth, I think we should be able to "edit", till the following entry is posted. Once the following entry is posted, the edit key should disappear.

Weil dette forum is a kinda international und not alle have a doctor grade in der englishe sprache, I suggest at the edit time limet should blive 15-20 mins  :laughing: :tease:

Well, I'm just kiddin' a bit, but sometimes it would be great if  the edit time limit is 15-20 minutes , especially if a longer writeup is made :shock:

Unfortunately, we have had (formerly) "trusted" folks do just as Temmu suggested -- post a "flame" or completely erroneous information and then after eliciting responses, go back and edit what was originally written.  In addition, I have run into situations where someone receiving help edited their original post instead of posting the new logs as a reply.  This resulted in two problems, the first being that the original log was not available for comparison and the second being that I hadn't realized the person had replied and was waiting for further instructions from me.

Please realize, folks, that SMF forum software is no where near as customizable as IPB or phpBB.  Therefore, kindly accept that the settings are what they are and, at least for the foreseeable future, will not be changed.

Since further changes are not expected at this time, I am going to close this topic that began almost a year ago. 

Thank you for understanding.
