Yep, I had trouble with that to. We had private conversation and Boss figured out what is going on. As I understood he have user groups settings where he can give permission to edit or not msgs. To some members editing is disabled by default on the new forum. That would bee easily sorted out if you write complaint to Boss or moderators (or even to DusanBoss himself)
Nick, thanks for pointing that out. As Dusa says, the problem has been addressed by the Boss. Snafu also had a bit of trouble editing when he came back to edit a previous post. The new forum is still in the teething process so any other problems should be pointed out so we can let the Boss know.
Yeah the problem was resolved, but only for my two most recent posts, but now I am back to not seeing the edit button for any posts. I will just wait and let the new forum teething process work itself out and then if it is still a problem later I will ask the Boss for help. He's busy so I hate to bug him over small time stuff.
But thanks guys.
Edit: Ha..ok I see it again but only for my most recent post. I am thinking it seems like it is on a timer, that you can only edit within a certain amount of time after you make a post? Since I can't edit any other post but my most recent posts.
Kind of annoying when you make a post and then go back later and see a glaring spelling error or some tortured grammar or a missing word but you can't fix it. Having an edit history available like they have on Facebook prevents people from being able to edit in a way that totally changes the meaning or to troll since everyone can see what they changed.
This seems to be fixing a problem that didn't exist since the number of people changing posts for malicious intent or trolling would be tiny.
Not a fan.
Yeah I hate grammar nazis as well but I often write when I'm in a rush or maybe I ramble on too long and then when I read over things later I will notice some mistake and I want to correct it for my own sake and for clarity.
But yeah some people will ignore everything someone else is saying and then belittle them for some minor issue. Plus on an international forum that kind of behavior is beyond rude since English is not everyone's first language. Hell, plenty of native speakers are not necessarily good at the written word and write in a more, "natural" or "spoken word" style, as it were. hehe I really could care less as long as I understand the point they are making.
