In the "webnews" and "articles/reviews feedback" forums we've had some bad experience with people posting one thing, us reacting to that post, and them editing their original post to make it say something else and our replies are then ripped out of context. To prevent that we've chosen to disable the "edit post" feature.

of course for small errors this can the troublesome; problem is that vB forum code we use doesn't allow very detailed "edit post" options "per forum". We could set it to let you edit your post xxx minutes after posting; problem is that it is a forum-wide variable; and some threads (the superpi/3dmark for example) won't be functioning anymore.

latest version of vB doesn't seem to change that either...

Cool. I'll just have to be more careful and learn how to input quotes manually!

Thanks, that's what I get for posting in the early hours of the morning while half asleep!

I've changed the "edit" setting, everybody can change their posts now; we'll see where it takes us

Ahh, well again I had wondered if it was an intentional setting! No need to change it on my account...

I rather would agree with the option to only allow editing so many minutes after the post was made, as that's when I tend to reread it completely and pick up on errors... Hopefully the privelege won't be abused and needed to be removed again!
