  • 5 minute edit rule??????????????

    what's with this rule?
    not only did i get stuck with an 8 character post (not certain how or why it posted... it just did) but it then wouldn't let me finish my train of thought claiming that five minutes had passed and that the edit was not allowed.

    excuse me.
    but if this "clock" process is not going to be a very helpful addition to the board. if i screw up, and then can't fix it, what the H&^L good is that?????

    yes i'm annoyed. whaddaya want? eggs inyerbeer?

    Well, I can't answer for Magoo (she is the admin here) but there are many different settings on the software that she has left as default so far, and this may be one of them. She will answer you once she gets on though.

      There is a defult 5 minute setting for editing posts. If you post something and want to edit it, do it within those 5 minutes. It's set up like that because... let's say someone says something that is going to stir the pot...well they could always go in and edit their post to make themselves look better so people don't jump on them...Does that make sense. That's just one example, but I think you get the idea. I know on a lot of the other boards I frequent, some of them don't even give you 5 minutes to edit your replies.

      If you were going to need your post edited, once it was posted, read over it and edit it then. If its in the for sale for, PM any of the moderators and they will help you out.

        OK
        But if we sell something isn't better to delete the post rather than leaving it on the board for others to waste their time on. With your rule we have to repost sold and that takes it back to the top for 100 more readers to waste their time because we can't edit the original post. Deleting a post or editing a post is an important feature at least on the for sale forum.

        What do you think?

          Deleting your own post in the for sale forum on the old board was not an option. The rules was before and is now, if you sell something, PM myself or one of the moderators and we will delete your thread.

          I'll see if I can edit the settings for just the for sale forum. I agree...the edit feature would be nice there and only there.

            That's the way they have it set up at Colorado4x4.org - you can delete posts in the For Sale forum, but nowhere else. You could probably give them a shout, I don't know who the admin is though.

              I changed the for sale forum. Can someone test it and let me know if it works?

                I tried it a couple times, but there was no edit button so I guess it didn't work. You can delete my Detroit Locker for sale post and the 2 test posts that didn't work.

                Thanks
