The edit function

could be problematic. I like the sites that don't let you change what you've written after the fact - we've already got the preview. Discussions/arguments (especially long ones) get very confusing when someone starts editing their posts from the beginning of the thread.

BTW: this post was in no way edited from the original, and then edited again, and then changed back to the original. Nope, no way, nosirree!

Yeah.

I've seen whole threads rendered even more unintelligible than usual on other boards  by a sore loser or whiny twat going back and editing or deleting the text of their ill-considered posts.

 

About that

You should have a time limit, maybe only 15 minutes to edit?

I think

that anyone who attempts to overthrow the Republicans should be drawn and quarter-horsed.

Well, that's what the "preview" button is for

Gives you the chance to correct mistakes, but doesn't allow after the fact editing. I think that's all we really need.

Oh shure, the preview button.

Come on, nobody uses that.

At the least...

there should be an indication that the post was edited.

It seems that my regular user test account can't edit a comment he made earlier. There should be a time limit already built in. Please let me know on some of the older comments you have made.

Well, no limit here

Xur's picture

apparently. I just changed the original post...

Yes, but you're sneaky that way.

RidingFool's picture

Cheater.

Also on comments

I changed them to where they show oldest first, the way most other websites are. Good for user friendliness. But I also added a way for you to change this functionality yourself. Scroll down to the bottom of any comments section to see the controls.

Cool, thanks!

Looks much better now, but I like that it's customizable!

Poopy pants, or poopy chaps - it's all the same -

cannot be avoided.

Why not, one might ask?

Well this is interesting...

Xur's picture

I can no longer edit the original post, nor comments 24 or 58, but comments 53 and 59 are still editable.

Wacky.

Yes, there is a time limit

Mr.Cranky's picture

Yes, there is a time limit for editing comments. And I'm trying to figure out just where that time limit is defined.
