We removed this privilege due to abuse by members resulting in destroyed threads that no longer had continuity. If you absolutely must have an edit to a post send a request via PM to that forum's moderator and he/she will do it for you.

There is a short grace period after making a post that allows edits for spelling, grammar, etc.

Rather than a blanket policy affecting everyone (most of whom don't abuse the edit function), why not limit the editing function for the abusers?

I often will go back to a post and add a photo to the original or make a spelling change.

Wicked Whippets...It would be impossible to know who will end up abusing those "edit" rights so the policy had to go into effect.
You can email or PM any Moderator to add or change your post. I am one of the Moderators on the West Coast so I am usually up fairly late.
(Just look for any one of the many posts from MM in the pet area and click my name)


MM

PS... How did you do this today?

The exception is when I have asked a number of times and I am a good standing member and have been refused.The source of the thread was me and certainly then I am the one person who knows what I want associated to my user name or not.Not knowing me,anything about me,why would a request be refused.Abuse????.No I don't think so.A honest request.Yet it isn't being taken care of.Now given that as the facts,I ask a Admin to honor my request to delete the thread about Vintage Mod's.

Gary, I answered you in a PM about the thread in question. We generally do not lock or delete content of a forum unless forum rules are broken.

Every forum I have been on uses a time out on the editing of a post. We had left the time out deactivated on this website unitl we finally had a post where the poster made a drastic change to his post that created other problems and the thread made no sense when read. The administrators here decided we need to activate the editing function and it was set a 15 minutes after the post.

The post has been discussed in the Moderators forum and it was found that there is no reason to delete the thread. I will go ahead and lock the thread.

Ken

You "admin" types are making hard for some of us to use these forums.

I quit using the photo section simply because I could not wait up to 24 hours for picture approval. I use photobicket and I can post a photo in less than a min and have it on IV2 for viewing.

Now my spelling and grammar are have room for improvement. There are times when I left words out that changed the whole post. I have also gone back and changed things after I find new info or correct and error. I then post an update to tell the IRV2 readers about the correction or update. I am not thrilled with the fact that I have to have someone fix my mistakes and wait hours or even days.

Penalize the offenders not the whole community. If gets an worse I will just quit posting!

I just tested your new feature... in the above post. Check it out. This sucks big time.


HOW ABOUT 24 HOURS

That is flat out untrue for at least the last 12 months..!
I personally know that MM is up until approx 12:00 PM Pacific Time every nite approving every picture that comes in if it is appropriate for family viewing. Dirk, (Route 66) handles most of them during the day when MM is at work or unavailable.

I don't give a rat's patute if he/she stays up 24 hrs a a day. The fact is I have to wait when I should not have to. I don't post offensive photos. I have over 435 photos (before I quite posting them) with close to a 450,000 views. Give me a break.

I well understand the need to want to approve pics.I for one don't care to look on a RV forum and see pics that shouldn't be there.On the other hand,I do post from photobucket on the other sites who don't want the same things guys want to keep out of here.Seems photobucket sreens the pics themselfs.Maybe that would be a way to save all of you a ton of work.Just allow photobucket pics only.

I also don't feel this new policy makes much sense...sorry...the need to edit your posts or add updates seems crucial to me.
