    DefaultWhat's happened to the "EDIT" function to a post we've made?

    It used to be that when we made a post, we could re-open it, edit it, re-post it and a small note
    would appear listing the time and date the last edit was made.

    Now there is NO way indicated to edit, modify, and correct a post. (Or also delete it, which also
    used to be a useful option, especially when we inadvertently double posted the same thing.).

    Why?

    And are these changes permanent?

    New owners, new rules, moderators have been fired, owners feel they can use any picture posted for any purpose they choose.

    Interesting. Seems you can edit a post you have made within the last 20min or so. Looks like they have "locked" all posts made prior to about 9pm this evening. Sneaky.

    Yup. Posted this at 9:20, it's now 9:23 and I am editing, also able to delete should I wish. I think I should dust off my copy of "How to Win Friends and Influence People" and lend it to my new friend.

    Yeah - I wanted to edit a post I made yesterday and can't. Is this server housed in a totalitarian country somewhere? Seems to be the new philosphy.

    Chris, you will only be able to edit a post for a very short window of time. It will still say "last edited at...", what has changed is you cannot edit anything you have posted prior to 9pm this evening.

    Its likely because members are going back and removing pictures they have posted, now that they know about the license being given to JL when you do.

    At least, thats what i did yesterday when i found out. lol.

    I see now. There is no edit button. I have been keeping track of Tessa after her TTO and using JL to do. When I was looking for info on the TTO it kept coming back to my post about her having one so thought others might like to read our progress.
    Went to edit it and no button.

    This is actually NOT a new philosophy. Limited edit time is to prevent people from editing their lies and making the thread worthless to read.
