Quote from: AE_Collector on January 01, 2018, 01:41:47 AMWe were wondering when someone would notice that change and knew it was only a matter of time. We used to be able to modify posts here even years later but other forums, as TwoCV describes, allow only a short period of time for modifications. We are trying a time-out of one half a week at the moment, once a post is 3.5 days old it can no longer be modified. There is a reason which I won't get into at the moment. It is still subject to adjustment. We have made some allowances for individual posts that are continuously added to but there could be other topics/posts that may need solutions.Terry

I have modified posts years later only because I had new information, removed unnecessary "wordiness", edited to make it more clear and/or added or replaced pictures with better ones. Sometimes I go back and correct punctuation, spelling and grammar errors because they drive me nuts!

Quote from: Dan/Panther on January 01, 2018, 12:34:54 PMMy understanding is that the modify option has a time limit, due to the recent events surrounding a member that went back to old posts a deleted all informatioin posted by that individual.Though we can't control providers like Photobucket, we need to do all we can to limit the same situation happening to written data.D/P
