Hello,

Given that all of the posts made are date/time-stamped, what would you think about allowing a user to change their own posts (or delete them) within the first 15 or 30 minutes after posting?

This would let folks correct or add things to a post without running the risk of them "re-writing history" later.

This method is quite acceptable in most forums, mainly in news & professional forums. I think it is a good idea here, too.

We had this facility already, but we removed it to implement an anti-spam module.

I will try to get it back after discussing with my team.

Fine. Here is my 1000nth post with the usual words. icon_lol.gif

"Yes, We have implemented ..., Please let me know the ..." icon_exclaim.gif

And now a user can edit his own post within the first 10 minutes of it being submitted.

Hi Mac,

Thank you icon_smile.gif

Might it be helpful to "broadcast" this so people will know they are able to correct their post within 10 minutes?

Thanks again,

Thank you Dick & MC & CO for giving permissions to edit own post.

It is a good idea, sometime swe make mistakes, we will recognize it only after submitting it. Now we have 10 minutes of time to correct our mistakes..

No, we want to know whether you can edit your posts after 10 minutes.

Its there to 'broadcast' this facility. But the actual reason is to avoid some unnecessary database queries.
