The first post edit is a mixed blessing. Used correctly, for example to index specific points of relevance in a longthread, and its invaluable. Used to alter the meaning of an original idea/thread etc and its not.

Seemingly very few actually use the feature.

Disappearing pictures hosted on 3rd party sites is a long standing problem. The answer favoured by many is to attach pictures directly to the thread or, upload the pictures to the gallery, and use the links for each picture to embed it within the text of a post.

It would be so much simplyer to leave the edit button there like other forums do.

As mentioned it created confusion, finger pointing, accusations, denials and serious frustration.

And those were the positive things.

Could you not leave it on for cleanup on demand and take it of when finished and if the member abuses ban him.
