Cal, I understand that you have thought about it and are comfortable in your stance and decision. I fully respect it and am not belittling nor dismissive of that.

I merely represent the the opposite view - rationally speaking now, what on earth are the consequences of being able to edit your posts on a hobby forum? I have considered it -- and there is going to be no war breaking out, people dying, or massive collapse of the political or monetary system. We have politicians for that. (my apologies for the gratuitous exaggeration.)

We talk about speakers and amps here. That's the point I'm having such a hard time with. What could possible be of consequence in the forum? The user, each individual user, is ultimately responsible for the safe use of their rig, as well as proper constructions practices, precautions, et.all... So ultimately the responsibility of action and the related consequence is not the responsibility of an individual's posts - as the act of writing something here has no bearing on the actual operation of a sound system.

Ultimately I see it as this: I want the ability to correct something factual, or add clarification, in a post I have written.
I am a very considerate and careful poster, and am not the type to fall into arguing, arrogant, holier-than-thou, flame wars, trolling, and being generally obnoxious... In fact, if all that is left of me after I die are my forum posts, I will gladly leave that as my legacy.

But I still want to edit my posts.

Hello,

I'd just like to jump in here and say that on many other forums I've been on there is no time limit for editing posts. You can come back a year later and edit a post.

I just wanted to point that out for two reasons.

1. It is done in many other places.

2. Those other places still seem to operate without any issues from this indefinitely editable post idea.

Just take this into consideration, remember, though it may have been reviewed before, perhaps things have changed, this is why the US Constitution allows Amendments

I fully agree. I wonder if the David Attenbourgh tone had anything to do with that .

I can see the divide between those who have dealt with the issue from a Moderator perspective and those who have not. You're going to have to trust us on this one.

Probably none..... But the few people who might start problems by changing something they put in before is the reason most sites are now weary of this..

Although most sites WILL TELL YOU @ the bottom of the message if the post was edited and that should be enough to possibly avoid problems...... (But sadly I dont think it is)
