Hi,

Users only have 10 minutes after a post has been submitted to edit it. I can edit the post for you if you let me know exactly what you need edited.

10 minute rule is annoying. First forum to get draconian like this. We lousy typers need to go back and clean things up on occasion

lots of the forums I'm on do this usually 20 minutes tho. But it's good in the case of a poster getting in a disagreement or mad about things and strips various threads of their posts making some of them difficult to follow. Not so much on the bs threads but on threads with technical content, tips etc it can be a disaster.

20-30 would be fine, but most don't have limits for editing.

Yeah, we have the limits in place for essentially the same reason that zvezdah1 mentioned above. I've not really heard of this as being an issue on other forums with time limits in place. Most members seem to just give their posts a quick read through before they hit the post button.

Again, we are happy to correct any edits that were not made prior to the time expiration. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns about this.

Cheers,

Erik

yeah I was a mod on elisetalk back in my elise days. We had a really tech savvy member who had posted literally dozens of threads on tech related information, tips, etc. At one point he got mad and went back and deleted hundreds of his posts in those threads making the threads essentially unusable.

...and "delete"?
No edit or edit posts or answers.. reply etc...
Sometime you would like to edit a post with more pictures or edit to anothers...
Or even add text... or correct for more update info.

In my opinion it should be free edit, but Im only a user.
Everyone have a responsible use of the forum. If not , get a warning...
Mostly Stelvio Forum is grown up age range... so please dont threat us like childs who need parental advisory.
As I said.. just my opinion... only an user.

Peace!

Flavio

Hey there,

Leaving "edit" unlimited are going to cause a huge amount of loopholes that we cannot risk for the forum.
If any user needs to ever "edit" some information, we can look into it and see what we can do.

As for "deleting" we don't delete content on the site. If you need personal information removed, please PM us and we'll see if we can get it sorted.
