Re: editing posts...again by Al Bergstein on Sep 24, 2011 at 4:27:12 pm
Yes, I wasn't being clear, I do know that you allow editing within a window. Other boards do allow long term editing ability. Facebook and Twitter are limited to such a short message length, while being aggravating, is not that big a deal to retype. But I understand that it could have to do with system resources at your server farm, etc. Stuff that I'd be unaware of from this side of the screen.
Anyway, at this point, the quality of the boards are what keep me coming back.

No, it has nothing to do with system resources and it would be relatively easy and quick to change. The reason we do not want to, is that we have seen other boards allow changes and the original poster changes their original question or comment and then all the replies look completely out of sync.
That is why we give 30 minutes or until someone responds to the post and then it locks.
