    I don't see the harm in wanting to correct or edit a prior post that you have made to ensure correct information and that it was stated in the best manner possible. Not sure about others but I would appreciate having the ability to edit my posts that aren't more than a week old.

    I agree.

    the brokedad saga is why it changed.

    #4 6 years ago

    No saga this time. I was testing some stuff this week related to the new post ratings feature and set the post editing ability shorter (1 day) to test the behaviour. It will soon be set back to 1 week

    I don't know of this saga... must be a reason why they started that

    No nope, no saga, move along please...nothing to see here.

    Not my intention to bring up old drama at all. As you probably know I frequently to edit my posts. Guess I'm a perfectionist when it comes to some things. Thanks for the info Robin and all the work you do to keep Pinside the best Pinball site on the web!

    I use an iPad most of the time to access the site. Since I cant post pictures from that device, I will often go back to old posts to get pictures if I need to re use them. Hit edit and copy the attachment code. I would hate to see this go away, its been a workaround to a limitation in the iPad. I understand why though.

    I'm the same way, TDA. In fact, now that I'm a mod, I've been known to edit the spelling on other poeople's posts. Sometimes I just can't help myself.

    Hahaa, yea I have done that to some of the posts that I have quoted. I know I shouldn't but it's hard for me to resist as well.

    FYI, the post edit time is now again set to 4320 minutes. I was experimenting with variable editing times (based on a user's karma) but this is not so easy, so I have set it back to 4 days for now. I have also been thinking about how long people should be able to rate posts, oh wait, that should go in another thread...
