Edit Button

Recommended Posts

Vergere

Alright. After much studying and research, I have discovered something.

1. My edit button is gone. I can't edit my posts. This was my first discovery.

2. I can edit only immediately after posting. I can't go back and edit later if I realize I wrote something wrong. (Read: Tenses.) If it's been a certain amount of time, or I go to a different page and return, I can't edit my own posts.

3. It's really annoying, and hasn't ever happened until today.

So. Ideas as to what's happened? If I did something wrong? If it's always been that way and I never noticed? I already know I can't *delete* my own post, but I don't ever remember having an issue editing them.

Keep me updated.

Pip pip.

speaking of buttons...I wish there was a button that marked every post on the whole board as read without having to go into each forum and doing it.

Oh I may have fiddled with the settings a while ago. Why do you need to edit old posts?

As well as what Drake said, if you stay on the forum index and click on the 'new posts in this forum' icon, it'll mark that whole forum as read, but leave the others.

Roleplays? *glances at Rogue and Drake* For tenses. When I screw up. Or need to change something. Just once I go off the page, I can't edit it anymore.

I think it's currently set up so it'll let you edit it within an hour of when you posted it.

No, you can't delete your posts at all... I did that ages ago. :p

I can make the edit think longer if you like?

I hate it when people edit really old things and then later posts don't make sense :p

in our case, though, the really old stuff has coding issues, which causes more confusion than edited content, IMO.

Maybe make the edit thing up to a week or two, instead of an hour? That should be sufficient.

I'm with Drake, why can't we all just edit whenever we want?
