Forum Changes?!

What do you think?

Forum Changes?!

PostPosted by Cleoriff » Sun Sep 18, 2016 8:24 am

Not sure when this change occurred but it has been recent and is annoying.

Previously...

When I made a post I was given TWO options immediately after posting. I could EDIT or DELETE my post (shown below)

Image
Until someone else posted I was allowed to DELETE using the cross. (Believe me I did this many times when I regretted a comment made late at night!!)
I could also go in at any time and EDIT my own post (even if anyone posted after me)

Now I have lost both options?????
At 1.10am this morning I posted something in the Trustee section. This morning at 7.30am I wanted to edit.
The edit (and delete) functions were no longer available to me ON MY OWN POST.....
Now....
Image

No one had posted after me so those options should've still been available. There has never been a time limit on these functions previously (on this forum)

Not happy!

I'm not aware of any changes but something might have changed when we switched servers?
I'll look later after footie.

I was thinking the same about server change Rich....
I hadn't noticed till 2 days ago when I wasn't even able to change the spelling on a topic started by me!! (Jonsie's Birthday thread)
I had to ask Ryan to do it...
So that's another new issue/change.

It's as if we now have a much shorter time limit...(well Trustees do anyway!)

Just to add here that the option to edit at any time did exist before.

I wont post the link in the open forum but I discussed Editing Posts on 3rd June 2014 (In the Trustee section).
That was a slightly different reason for posting. It was about Mods and Admin editing someones posts without informing the poster. :roll:

However, the long discussion between myself and a member of the Admin team stated precisely the options to edit and delete that were available at that time (to Trustees)
This isn't about that precise issue ( :lmao ) ... this is simply about a change which has occurred in forum functionality :lmao

Fine. I agree which is why I have been offline for a while.
Not really important in the grand scheme of things.
Although to quote yourself " I will look at it after footie"...

There is no post editing option in the forum software now except for mods and admin, so if anyone wants anything editing they will need to PM a mod or admin.

Great! So this is more like Lithium now. I will just have to be careful with my spelling and what I post.
Freedom of choice removed....Just like North Korea. :Wellfu

I'm interested in the road you went down to get to this point?

Spell checker is enabled by default.
