No edit feature for forum posts
« on: March 21, 2010, 10:16:59 AM »
Hello admin

there does not appear to be an edit feature for posts in the forum
am i missing something obvious
searching on the word "edit" says nothing found
most forum software allow you to edit or modify or something

Hi Tom.
We had to remove the ability to edit posts due to a few trouble makers who would get on the forum, post something nasty about another person or such and then remove it later on after it had been read.
It caused a lot of upset as you can imagine.  In the end it was decided by admin to remove the ability to modify. 

Hopefully, these days we no longer have these 'fruit loops' joining the forum, but to save the tears admin will keep things this way.

Love and Light
Catseyes.  (via Tomcats account...)
