Editing Posts

Postby Bojack93 » Tue Jan 30, 2018 5:50 pm

Hey @management,

Why can't people edit posts anymore? Seems like a weird change to make! I am more inclined to post on message boards that allow me to edit posts and hope that I will be able to find one. That will make top-law-schools.com much easier for me. I occasionally make typos, you see.

Yours,
Bojack

Management,

I concur with the previous poster. I also would like to add that removing private messages was another bad move. Information sharing, aside from making public posting, is a large value of this website to users.

You are breaking something that worked. Lost another user here.

Honestly not sure what's going on with this site anymore. Nowhere near what it used to be. Time to fix it.

I agree here. There are times that people want to take back information that is too personal or information that maybe 2 hours later looks more distasteful than when the thought first came to mind.

Even the law, during litigation, allows attorneys to recover information that was mistakenly provided in the first place (clawback rule anyone?). It seems that editing in this less formal context should be allowed for at least similar reasons.

Please tell me how. Not seeing an edit button anywhere. Thanks!

I spoke too broadly. You can edit posts in threads started after they turned that functionality back on. You can’t edit posts in threads that existed when they turned the editing functionality off.
