Apologies if this has been answered or is a "mac issue". I don't see an "edit" on any but the last post in a thread (so couldn't delete an earlier double post) BUT the last post can be deleted but offers a "reason for editing"...which, of course, is only likely to be suited to earlier posts in a thread.

Confused of Montgomery :(

The edit bit is on a real short fuse,sometimes not there at all.

The reason you only see it on the last post of the thread is because there is a time out of around 7 minutes,after this time you can no longer edit a post.

So you only see posts that you have made in the last 7 minutes with an edit button.

The forum used to be set to allow editing of posts for ever,trouble comes when a member gets upset and decides to edit every one of their posts leaving the threads not making any sense.

If I set it to say 15 minutes you can get a reply without a quote and the post before could be edited causing the same confusion as a reply could be to a question that is no longer there due to editing.

Ah....every other forum I've been on allows editing later. Must Bee Logic :/.

It seems strange that on returning to a thread later that day and realising that you've double posted or you've written ambiguous tosh and want to clarify in context or want to tone down a post that could appear a little overheated that you can't do it though.

Sounds good admin, I hadn't noticed the change, but do remember a couple of incidents where an unhappy bunny went back and deleted most of the content of their posts.

Most of us realise very quickly when a double post has taken place. Not only that, but there is usually a window comes up to advise of impending stupidity. I just don't remember the details as I havn't seen it for such a long time.

Not Bee logic, but evolutionary control in a closed feedback loop. Seen it, done it, only want to buy the tshirt once. Admin remains proactive. :)
