Suggestion Time limit for editing posts.


Master Member
Hey guys,

I know that in the past we had members edit a lot of their posts for various reasons, sometimes valuable information, sometimes just making an interesting thread a complete waste of storage since it was left unreadable.

Other forums limit the time for editing a post to e.g. 48 hours. After that it can only be edited by a mod or admin. This way a "crippling" of an informative thread could be prevented.

What if the OP changed his or her mind as to what they wanted to share or show. it's there information. should they not have the right to control it as they see fit.

I disagree as I find it refreshingly useful to be able to edit older posts so to allow new & updated information to be included. It can actually reduce the storage 'footprint' by keeping threads from growing unnecessarily.

I guess I just haven't seen the phenom that Daddy is referring to, personally. Perhaps some examples?
