Re: Account Closing and Post Editing
And why should we limit the ability to do so if it makes no difference?

And don't forget reference threads and articles, or someone who wants to put a recap at the start of a 50 page thread. Should one have to bug the mods over all of that?

E 2 = (mc 2)2 + (pc )2
614C → 714N + e + ̅νe
2 K(s) + 2 H2O(l) → 2 KOH(aq) + H2 (g) + 196 kJ/mol
It works, bitches.

Realistically, why would anyone have the need to have gifs as their signatures, for example? Or any signature at all? Or smileys? Or even post in a forum? Only needs anyone has, are those for nourishment, water and air. Everything else is a bonus, not a need.

A more valid question, at least to my eyes (not that it matters), would be: Do a lot of users enjoy the unlimited editing function? By the looks of it, the answer appears to be yes.

Do a lot of users abuse this function? Hm, I don't know. Do they? Consider

RE: Account Closing and Post Editing
How many people go back and edit posts beyond a few days after posting?

Oh and there's always been an edit time limit even before I joined so this is nothing new.

RE: Account Closing and Post Editing
It is currently set to a week, but that's excessive. a few days is all that's needed.

I seriously doubt anyone would have noticed that kind of change if we hadn't brought it up here anyway.

Oh well, lesson learned then eh? Next time just do it, nobody will know the difference.

Too late now.

Calm down Phaedrus... sheesh.

Do you really bother to go through a 50 page thread that you participated in, reread it, and edit your posts? It just doesn't sound right to me.

There isn't a huge chance that your thread will suddenly attract millions of views and people will start critiquing it like a doctoral dissertation.

RE: Account Closing and Post Editing
I've set it to 3 days. If it proves to create huge issues for people it can always be looked at again. If anyone wants to edit a post but can't feel free to PM me.
