I usually remember something I wanted to post in my post when browsing further. Its usually one line or a clarification of my point and allthough usually hits me within 5 mins this time didnt and had to make a 2nd post for just one line.Will said:I assume you mean the time before you get an edited by X at blah announcement. I think it should be left as it is. From a mods point of view, any longer, and we'd have people posting things, then changing them just before the timer, so there would be no proof of the edit.
Five minutes is plenty of time to fix typos, which is all that timer is for.
Wouldn't that take up alot of bandwidth, though?Swift^ said:Can we change it to two weeks so everytime I look like an idiot in a post I can go back and edit it to try and change the world's opinion of me?
either it has changed back since last night but clown tested in this post (see 6:00 pm post, edit at 6:03 pm, new post at 6:07 pm). Will test it with this post.MYstIC G said:As far as I'm aware the following did apply in relation to editing posts:
Hope this helps
- You have 5 minutes to edit a post before the "Edited by" marker becomes tagged onto that post automatically.
- You have a maximum of 1 day from the time of posting to edit a post before it becomes permanant

thing is forums dont move so fast usually that me editing my post (as I realized I have to word my post a little differently or realized how to clarify something) will cause any real problems (I dont edit a post after 10 mins, unless no one has posted and I dislike making two posts directly after eachother).Deebs said:5 mins should be ample enough to get your message out as you see fit, you dont hold a verbal conversation and go back in time and edit the original, you start a new one, (ie new message).
If you can provide REAL VALID reasons then of course it can be reviewed...
It got locked as you were redirected to this thread by another moderator, that's plenty reason enough.Vodkafairy said:Well my other post got locked for fuck all reason so I'll try again. Imagine me putting up an auction for 30 items in the Dark Age of Camelot / trading forums, everytime an item is sold I'd like to edit the post instead of make a reply to the original post to prevent confusion.
But I can't do that anymore now, I have to make post after post after post to keep it updated and it's extremely annoying, confusing and unnecessary.
At least make it usable in the trading forums, please.

Personally I think Deebs should leave it at 5 minutes, then maybe people will think more about what they post before they post it.
but still no one is perfectDeebs said:Aha, someone who knows what I am trying to achieve.
er, no, some guy just made a useless reply to my thread and closed it after I said "k"MYstIC G said:It got locked as you were redirected to this thread by another moderator, that's plenty reason enough.
start thinking yourself then? daoc trading forums work very different compared to other boardsPersonally I think Deebs should leave it at 5 minutes, then maybe people will think more about what they post before they post it.
restoring the edit button back in the trading forums makes it easier for everyone there :/MYstIC G said:This is totally outside the realms of where I should draw the line as a mod, but tbh I now don't care. Frankly Fuck DAoC. Bored of hearing about it everywhere all the time. We're so far away from the "back before the beginning" vibe now it's stupid. Bring back 2001.
Deebs: feel free to kneecap my mod status for this if it shuts them all up.
Just create a text list of your latest items for sale, upload it to your personal website, and post a link instead, you can update the text file whenever you like.Vodkafairy said:restoring the edit button back in the trading forums makes it easier for everyone there :/
i don't know why you make that comparison at all, the reason why the edit button was removed on the entire forum does not count for the trading section at all and it makes it much harder and confusing to hold auctionsSwift^ said:Why must DAoCers think it is acceptable to have one rule for them, and one rule for everyone else?
Deal with it.
