I can edit my last post added to If I Had A Hammer , a topic that I started. No edit option for my posts in The Misfits - Discussion

Maybe once someone has replied to the thread (or maybe replied to the post), the content is set to reply/quote only to prevent shenanigans? It may have been this way for some time now, and I'm just noticing in response to the above post.

Ugh. Keep accidentally quote-self posting.

And yeah. Can't edit my OP. So, your guess makes sense, Null.

It appears that only your last post can be edited now. Or perhaps within a certain time.

It appears that you can only edit your last post on any given thread. You can edit all your last posts on all the threads that you are posting to, at least it seems so to me. I'm not sure I like that, also, not sure it is a good idea, after all for example I have been posting a story in chapter sized bites, so what happens if I need to change something in the first chapter bite I posted? Can I only do that until I post the second? What if I need to change something in a year?
Edit: it appears to me that you can edit your last post until some one replies to the thread. Still not very happy about the only edit until reply function. Like I said, I have minor pieces of corrections/proofing that I've done on Nowhereville parts including the first part. But now they are locked as posted currently.

The action may be due to 'preserve' what had originally been posted so that a person could not 'alter' their previous post thus making it a part of history if ever needed to be looked back upon. No snipping of what you said and later regretted.

Think of it this way. If Nixon were to say have posted his tapes online in transcript and later didn't want to show those missing minutes he could have just gone back and edited them out thus leaving many parts confusing, misleading or gone. You can't delete the thread but you wipe out what was there unless someone had copied the original an posted in 'their' msg thus preserving the original.

This is what trapped Nixon on several points as with other acts.

But yes it does leave a bit to those that wanted to go back and correct legitimately, errors, lost train of thought and so forth.

What is - was. What was - is.

I do not know what caused this, it certainly isn't intentional. Any location in which you have the ability to post, you should also have the ability to edit your own post. If you don't have the ability to edit, you probably also shouldn't be able to post in that section. The only place I tried to get 'fancy' with configuration would be the Fab Lab, which should only allow the thread creator to post or edit in that thread. No one else should be able to generate reply posts. Or at least, I intended to set it up that way... I don't remember if I actually did or not.

I haven't changed the permissions on forums sections (except one and it applies to almost no one) for over a year and its been two weeks or so since the last forums code update. So... I'm not sure what to tell you. I'll look into it.

It doesn't appear so. I just tried to edit an earlier post of mine in this thread and still can't get the edit option.

What about in a non-support thread ... like something in the Quad? Trying to work out if its a matter of different permissions / set up in categories.
