Are we limited to a very short time to edit posts now?

Hi Gary, yes we are limiting the editing time now. Sorry, forgot to mention that, got busy with all the bs below.

The issue last week when someone wanted to get 'all legal' with another member and also involve the site made me think twice about the editing. He came back in and changed a number of his topics so that ability had to be turned off. We have backups but it was a real nuisance to have to go dig them up for reference.

You should be able to make changes with no notice appearing for 10 minutes or so, then after that a notice appears that it was edited and finally, after 30 minutes, no editing allowed.

hope that explains it. As usual, it just takes one guy to mess things up for everyone else.

Ditto!!

Is it possible to allow editing to the subject line only?

The editing is one setting. the subject can be changed but it has to be within the same time frame.
