I think you will find that the majority of our members and visitors do take this forum very seriously, and in spite of your strong feelings and offer of assistance in the matter the editing feature will remain closed for the foreseeable future.

If you want to discuss this mater further then I suggest you PM me directly.

Well, it seems to me that it just means we have to THINK before we TALK(write) and that is not a bad thing. Yes, other forums have edit facility, but this one doesn't so get over it. We are all guests here and so have some respect for the owners. They decided to remove the facility and it really is not up to you or anyone else to DEMAND like you are doing. Go take some anger management course. (or at least deal with your frustrations)

Fare enough...C....


But let me say agian as I don't hink I was clear enough...(If I had edit..this would not be here)

By a person adding an additional post....is nothing..but....times that by 200 or 300 and now you have an additional 1000 posts that really only should be 400 or 500....

By adding the edit feature...or Update on the database side it stays at 400 - 500 inserts....Which allows for faster queries and page loads.....

Here is another exsample....

a double post....double the memory...double the bandwidth...


EDIT:

double post....true
double memory....true
double bandwidth....not necessarily true, prbly like 30 - 50 % extra bandwidth.

If I may retort...


Well....I do have a sailor's mouth.....so for that I will digress.


But As far as the members edit part....

"but I will say that it has worked extremely well for us so far and no-one has complained. If members want something amended they ask one of us and we do it with pleasure."


Well...let me be the first to say...I WANT MY EDIT FEATURE!!!


I will be the first to say that I Want my edit feature BACK!!!

If your prblem was ppl retracting statements or images....that can be fixed with code my friends.  But Please.....Please don't make the whole forum suffer from a few bad apples.....(even though I am a bad apple in my own way...hee hee)

You can set limits or restrictions on everything.....!!!!!
qmantoo or my self is experienced @ coding (Q better than me) .



Good reasons for Edit feature:

1) Totally keeps the mysql or whatever db u r using insertions down 2 a minimum...not a big deal now with a 100 users....but....wait till it gets 2 10.000....
then u will be trying to minimize ALL insertions ...but heck, why do I gotta wait till then...????
What do I mean by this....I mean that If I wish to correct a post...it ends up being a double post....double the memory...double the bandwidth...

2) Its more legitimate....Any BIG forum.....allows edits...(atleast within a certain time period) which is what should be happening here.

3) Just do it-----why-----cause NIKE said so..........




Well....4 1........there are only a hundred members....right now....And I am the first to complain

So.....on those percentages.....I'm a 1%  'er

Kinda like the people who actually use off road trucks for "off road".......(their also called 1%  percenters).

Other thatn the whole spelling point of view....Its a basic forum "RIGHT".....


Its OK right now.......BUT MARK MY WORDS.......THis will be a problem down the road.

SP, the rights were removed when members were destroying the threads by removing images and comments. None of us can spell, myself included so don't worry about it as nobody here judges you on that aspect.

None of us swear as much as you are doing either, please can you calm down on that a bit, there are a lot of ladies and older posters on this forum that find it offensive....myself included.

Xenon is the Administrator, I am sure he will add his viewpoint, but I will say that it has worked extremely well for us so far and no-one has complained. If members want something amended they ask one of us and we do it with pleasure.

If the mods could explain the nature of the reason for taking away the edit feature ....I or other members could help in improving the script with which is used to post or edit the post....if it is not available in the "out of the box"....


In fact....I ask this....as I am a new member.....who or what happened that the edit feature had to be taken away?\\\


WE can help....thats what we are here 4

By basic rights....I mean that if you go on any legitimate forum...u are allowed the right to edit your post.


If you guys have had problems in the past....then I'm sorry but that is NOT A GOOD ENOUGH EXCUSE TO CANCEL THE EDIT POST FEATURE.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


THis is just plain wrong to do this....and seriously....if this basic right does not change.....I will .................................I'm sorry...but I am standing up for the rights of your poster's.

This is seriously bull crap!!!! How can any body take this forum seriously when U guys can't even allow the basic sh|T like editing a post??????????????????????

I would like to consider myself as being a somewhat experianced forum poster.

And from the experiance I have gained.....IT IS WRONG TO CANCEL OUR RIGHT TO EDIT POSTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
ng the

Alot of times somebody says something they mis-spelled that scomes out completly wrong.....OR for those that like to be Grammatically correct....it is a hindreence as they can not modify there post.


I SAY THIS TO ALL MODS..........................U CANNOT TAKE AWAY THE FORUMS POSTERS' RIGHT TO EDIT THIER POSTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



If you want this to be a real forum........then U better give the right to edit posts back.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


U know as well as I do that if u can not do this....this forum will fail............and fail miserably.


I do know that this forum is a "out of the box forum and a lot of people do not not know how to edit the code...but I can help...

As "C" has told me ppl have abused the right to Edit....which : perplexus's me
because this is only a prblem if you do not know how to edit the "code"

My Point:

members should be alowed to edit ther post.
If u cannot, then how can anybody take this forum seriously when the basic rights of a poster are ignored!!!!
