Editing of Posts

Postby becchio bear » Sun Jul 27, 2014 8:20 pm

Just wondered why mods can edit their posts without it showing up as an edit? :bear:

I think it is a feature of this board, BB. Dunno if it can be turned off? :duno:

Possibly can enforce the need to make a comment, I'd have to look. The behaviour is as default though.

Editing of Posts

That would mean that the person editing would need to make some sort of amendment to show that they have edited a post. Quite often I have edited people's posts just to fix problems with quoting, but it is not obvious that I have done it - Adam is suggesting that he may be able to make it necessary for mods to say they have done it.

Cheers for that GW. The "tidying up" of quotes has been helpful in the past, I have had my problems in this regard :oops: My question was more about mods being able to add meat to the bones of their own posts at will without it showing up as an edit. If we mere mortals add words or sentences or even paragraphs to our original posts then each time it shows up as an edit. :bear:

Ah I see.

That's probably just a knock-on effect from the facility to edit other people's posts I guess. It wouldn't be practical for the software to allow mods and admin to edit all other posts invisibly but not their own.

I can't find a setting, I'll keep digging.

But as GW says, probably a knock on of being able to edit others posts.
