Editing Old Posts


#1

Can we please edit posts even if they’re very old? I always feel guilty bothering Caboose to edit things.

Oh, just realized this request was just posted.

The reason for this limitation is so old posts stand through time for archival purposes. It would be nice if there was a setting per thread (for mega threads and such), but there isn’t with Discourse. Basically, I could allow editing of old posts, but then people could abuse it and remove their old post, which a couple people already did.

Oh… :frowning:

What about just expanding the edit / reply times a bit to a few days instead of a few hours? I feel that’s a good compromise in the meantime.

Also, Mac, if you want Discourse to implement a per-thread/post edit/delete time setting, you might want to request it on their forum.
