Why Can't You Edit Your Posts After A Short While?

Postby YAFF » Wed Nov 28, 2018 5:07 pm

Didn't used to be this way. I posted an hour ago and I can't edit my post. What happened?

just something weemann came up with to make me stop deleting my posts, that was litterally the only reason for doing this.

The edit facility changed ages ago after an update.

It's a very stupid idea. JLP clearly can't edit his either, because his posts are almost incomprehensible (but not too difficult to work out, as it's a well trodden path - just think 'racism'). It's obviously due to predictive text, but you think he would check before posting. :roll:

Given that when the mods were voted for, we didn't know what we were going to get, we really should have another vote.

The QOL People's Vote. :) Jexit, Wexit and Kexit...bring it on. Mind you, Kes is no trouble these days, he's usually wittering on about Queen, or some such nonsense. :?

We had en election in 2003 and those results should be respected, as it’s a democracy. Yes, Delilah doesn’t post any more, but we voted for her so she must be a mod. It’s not up to us to work out how to make it happen, that’s their job.

:dontgetit: In some threads, or at least one thread, posts still can be edited.

But I'm not that brave
Rags are blowing
Rain's getting near
I'm done with running
And it's getting dark in here~

Wittering on about Queen? :-)

Being fair, Queen are the reason I initially joined this site, and in 2018, they're the only reason I'm still here at all. Once upon a time, it might have been fun to argue to stop yourself getting "Bored shitless" (Reg TM Minder), but these days, I've got bigger things (like living) to burn up my time.

Edit: Much bigger things! (See what I did there? :-) )

Maybe we should form the QOL Yellow jackets, and rebel until we get what we want? :P

I.spend half of my life with a fucking hi-vis on, surprisingly, when every other c*nt is wearing one, you hardly get noticed.
