    Suggestion about the edit function

    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if there were any way an edit button can be added for trusted members / donators that they can use even after 24h have passed since the thread was started.

    This would help a lot on shops and would decrease the work load on staff members.

    For example, I asked for an edit on my shop twice in the last 4 months and haven't received an answer.
    I'm sure the request wasn't ignored, maybe just lost, because there are a few staffers and way too many edit requests and other site matters that need their attention.

    Also, I see no reason why the edit button should be removed. If they add something to the thread that breaks the rules, I'm sure someone will eventually notice it and report it (if that was the reason why you guys decided to take away the edit button after 24 hours)

    Just a thought. Hopefully something can be done about this.

    Thank you.

    Regards
    Aaron

    Ah, I see. It's perfect then. I see no reason why this option can't be added for posts older than 24 hours, at least to see how it goes (if it gets abused, and so on), make it like a trial run.

    This can easily be changed.

    If Dave were bothered, he could make it so that all users have unlimited time to edit their posts

    Users were limited to 24 hours to edit posts because some abused the edit function by removing advertisements/links. I don't see any way the admins will increase this time limit for regular users (donators included).

    Well i have an idea to fix that once someone Posts a link aka like fourms.com it could send a warning Something like this @tommy4702 has posted a suspicious link And tried to remove it from his post (ik this would take a long to to code but its an idea )

    Any news on this?

    Can a staff member post and let us know if it's at least being considered?

    Thank you.
