Editing my own Thread

There is no Edit Button at the bottom of any of my Posts in my Build Thread

After the Photobucket disaster, I need to do a bunch of Thread Repair!

HELP!

No Edit button next to Quote, Multi-Quote, etc, line?
Strange, link to Build Thread?

Re: Editing my own Thread

Everett, I don't see an edit button either. You probably
do because you are a super moderator.

Re: Editing my own Thread

Hmmmm, I posted something just to see if I could find an edit button. Lo and behold there is one. Now. Perhaps the site fixed it? Haven't seen one in a long time. Good

Re: Editing my own Thread

After you post something you have a time limit (15min
I believe) to edit that post. After the time limit the edit
option goes away. At least that's the way it's worked
for me for a long time.

Re: Editing my own Thread

Mods can edit anytime. New posts can only be edited by the poster for 15 minutes. The the edit button goes away

Re: Editing my own Thread

Well I'm confused. T.C. is a sponsor and should be able to edit all posts in his sponsored forum.
I don't see a build tread for him in the build section, he would NOT be able to edit those threads.
Anyone know what thread he is talking about?

Sponsors have moderator in their own forums but not on the rest of the site. the thread he wants to edit is in the 2nd gen forum. I believe if it were moved to the BMR forum he should be able to edit away.

The reason for the short edit time on posts in the forums are many but the best example is when someone has a problem with the site and they go back and in a rage start edition their own posts... Also we had a few that would post (this is made up but something like) "who want's a free part" several guys reply "I do, I do" and the op as a joke edits his post to read "who wants to pound sand" you can see how that could be taken much farther and really be a problem.

Oh yeah good catch Dennis. I knew he had a 73 but I looked for it in the build section not thinking he would have put it there. I thought builds were for all generations. In any event I'll move it to his forum and let him at it. Maybe that is the solution for anyone as I have asked Jeff if there is any way of granting temporary rights to a user that expire after 24 hours but they still could rewrite history. BUT if we just move them to testride which they have edit and delete rights to right? Or better yet @me Jeff can we create a new section just for editing old threads that users can have edit rights to, then as we move the threads back to the original section we can inspect to see what other than links was changed. Sounds like a great solution all around the nightmare photobucket has caused us.

Re: Editing my own Thread

LOL ok just one problem with the plan to move it to his own forum, He doesn't have one.

I checked his rights, he is a supporting vendor, just doesn't have a dedicated customer service support forum here. SO I moved the thread to the vendor deals section and sent him a PM.

Re: Editing my own Thread

OOPs! I guess that does complicate things... What about the sponsors forum? Maybe if it isn't already it could be set to allow sponsors to edit posts there... I was also thinking maybe the test drive forum could be set for editing...

It seems to me that this edit time limitation should be lifted for a couple of months so folks have an opportunity to fix their build threads. The benefit to this forum will far exceed the risk of someone going over the edge on an edit. To be honest I have never seen such a thing and many of the forums I visit allow editing without time limits.
