Editing thread and posts

<< < (5/5)

Patriot:Ex Machina:
This one has me profoundly stumped. I've gone into the Permissions section of the Administration control panel and it says that members are already set to be able to edit their own posts.

This is most frustrating.

OK, I've talked to Jack about the issue, and it's apparently the software, it's supposed to be that way.
It's to keep one member from trying to back pedal and sand bag another by editing prior posts in a thread.
That's from the boss himself.  ;D
If you run into something you want added or need spelling edited, PM me or a moderator and they will mod it for you.

Thanks for looking into this for me and the justification makes pefect sense. Honestly, it kinda sucks though.  As as right now, I don't see as we have that devious kind of a group. Every board that I've visisted allows for editing of posts, all the way back to the beginning. I do realize that this is Jack's board and it's his rules and I appreciate that he has setup this great community.

It it possible to say that once a member hits a certain mark, or preparedness level, that editing of posts becomes available?

My reasoning: I can see a thread about a topic that is a very good reference. Instead of scrolling down and looking at every post within the thread, the original poster, OP, can edit the first post in the thread with the relevant, very current, information and if an individual wants to read thru the entire thread they can do that but if they wanted the informtion only, just read the first post.

I'm not trying to be rude or rock the boat, just trying to put aother perspective on the situation. Heck, I maybe the only one who cares. LOL
Please feel free to PM me if this does not make sense and maybe I can try and explain it better.

Thanks,
Tash

Tash,
your post makes sense.
I can see how that would be a good thing.
I'll have to see what the boss says.
