Hmmm. Badcaps actually seems to be the only forum I can't remove posts from.

EDIT: Oh, my goodness! me. I AM tired. That's because badcaps is the only forum I'm not a mod on.

I dislike the time limit for editing. Most recently, I was writing about which cap to replace a cap with (in my own thread), and someone corrected me on the series name. I wanted to change it in the original post, but it was like: You can't.

Honestly, being unable to edit your own posts a half hour later on a forum mostly of factual objective information seems pretty pointless... since it isn't likely there'll be a situation where an immature poster would go back and edit what he said to remove evidence, so to speak. That's the only reason I could imagine removing that for.

For information and stuff, it can be pretty confusing if you're looking something up, think you have the answer, then later find that the correct info was actually in another post made to correct the first.

I'd say a day would be a better choice if there is to be a time limit... or at least, not until there is another post after the one you try to edit, which would help limit double posting, too.

Just my 2 cents, I'm sure you've heard it all before.

It's happened before. i thought the same way as most until I checked the forum one day and some d-bag decided to remove all his posts.....which reeked havoc on threads. Never again. Be thankful it's not 10 minutes like it used to be.

PS:
I did just up it to an hour from 30 minutes..........if you don't have your post squared away within an hour, that's just silly and too bad!

The ability to edit your posts is always welcome.

On the other hand it really pisses me off when posts in other 'respectable community' sites can, and do, get deleted by a mod because of a naughty word - just happened to me this morning, had to do another, not-so-short post all over again. PITA

Yeah, I know I am posting in a thread that's been dragged up from the arc...

However, This not being allowed to remove your own post... you'll possibly find that it's to prevent the sensible ones on the forum looking like a spoon.

Imagine you reply to this and say something to me, I then removed my post, you'd look like a rusty spoon too (Useless) replying to....... nothing?

Just be thankful for small mercies, There are a lot of forums out there which won't even allow you to edit your own posts
