Edit posts? - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Can you enable post editing? I always forget to add something, not to mention typos.

Greetings madengr:

My reason for not allowing editing was to prevent someone from making a claim and then going back at some later point and changing it without alerting other to the nature of the change. It is not fair to visitors when someone posts a controversial remark and then goes back an changes it when proven wrong as if he/she never made the claim.

It is a pain to honest users, however, to not be able to clean up a post for grammar errors or mistaken content. As usual, it is the actions of a few scoundrels that screw things up for the everybody else. I am willing to give it a try, but will monitor the forums to make sure the privilege is not being abused.

Editing is now permitted for all but the Swap Shop, the Webmaster, and the T-Shirt Contest forums. The Swap Shop is kept as uneditable because with the exchange of money or bartering being involved, I want to make certain that descriptions and claims do not change “ex post facto.”

Thanks for writing.

Thanks. I know some forums allow the post to be edited until another post is added. That would probably be the best way to do it.
