You know what... I've been following a forum (an expat community), for 10+ years, it is with about 3500 members currently, managed mostly by a single person, and with no time limits on editing user's posts whatsoever. Means, absolutely, up to 10 years back, every one can edit posts. It is running in a sort of a "self-settling" manner. And "its all good", as GG used to say.Dan74 wrote: ↑Tue Dec 05, 2017 6:12 pmI was just going through the tools and saw these settings, which I changed to be more in line with the common practice as I know it. Generally leaving the option to edit posts indefinitely can destroy the coherence of a thread, when what people reply to is no longer there. But if anyone objects strongly and has a good reason, please don't hesitate to say so.
Here, where most of the people are responsible adults (or maybe not so?), with many 60+ years old, with a number of recognized teachers -- don't you think that if someone wants their post edited then they deserve this right? Honestly, I thought this would be one of the fundamental principles here. That's my personal opinion regarding this matter. Would love to hear others'.
