Re: Edit Policy Not Necessary

Dean,
With all respect, a thirty minute time limit has zero to do with a post requiring editing. Again if absolutely no reason to edit a post beyond 30 minutes then NOBODY needs the power to do so.

Re: Edit Policy Not Necessary

Why was the edit policy changed in the first place ? I really don't care one way or the other but I would really just like to know why was the edit policy changed at all ? It was like that (24hrs.) for many years. Is it an issue of economics or is it extra work for people ?

Re: Edit Policy Not Necessary

Extended editing would be helpful when technical data needs correction. Newbies (and us old heads too) search these threads for what we hope is accurate info. There have been times when I posted something that was incorrect or not described understandably, and the only way to fix it is type another post. No way to know if the guy searching for the info reads the corrected post.

Actually the time limit stayed as Al set it (15 minutes) for many years, then someone asked for it to be changed and one of the AG administrators changed it.

Later we forum moderators and forum administrators found out it had been changed, had a discussion and had an AG administrator change it back to 30 minutes.

All anyone needs to do is post a correction or better yet a quote of what they posted that wasn't correct with a correction.

Ding ding ding! We have a winner! I've noticed something I typed was incorrect and needed to correct it well after 30 minutes numerous times. Call it careless, but it happens. I can't conceive of a reason to artificially tie someone's hands when it comes to correcting posts. A notification that the post was edited automatically appended to the bottom of the post should be more than sufficient.

"blm" you're right but don't try to argue or make a point here, you're losing your time… I know, it's useless.

I know but they're too narrow minded to understand that and I think they don't even care…

Neither do I …but just try to find a good reason to have to write another post instead of just correcting the errors in the initial one…

Re: Edit Policy Not Necessary

So you non supporting members think that even non supporting members should have a say in this?

LOOK, I didn't make the rule, Al did, in fact I can't even change it. (even I wanted to do so.)

Re: Edit Policy Not Necessary

It's painfully clear there's no interest on the part of administrators in changing the edit policy, and this thread has gone off the rails. Let's be adults here and take a chill pill. We're better than this, guys.

Re: Edit Policy Not Necessary

Thanks for the explanation Dean.As far as the edit policy is concerned what are the edit policies of other auto related web sites ? in other words what is the norm for this type of auto related web site 's editing policy ?

Whats a non supporting member. Do you mean us freeloaders? I believe the site makes most of its money from advertising every available inch within these walls of afternoon delight. We unpaying subscribers contribute information and possibly even some entertainment, if the site could survive on paying members only it would have done so. So don't play that card.

Most users ever online was 3,486, Jan 6th, 13 at 4:07 PM.

Face it, the active user list is declining.

Yeah, but Al sold out and walked away, and then a lot of other stuff changed afterwards, and not for the better. Why would that 15 minute limit still be enforced because that was Al's rule? I'm with those that say give it more time. Unfortunately, TC is so disconnected from it's ownership, that it'll never change. They could care less IMO. it's just about advertising $$$, not community.

Yeah, facebook is taking over all the forums.

My apologies for sounding like I was talking about all non supporting members Eric. I was only thinking about one member when I wrote it.
wish I could go back an edit it
